On 18 February 2020, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Heng Swee Keat unveiled Singapore’s Budget 2020. Budget 2020 was unlike the usual Budget as it was one that turned its attention to focus on the immediate challenges in order to help the city-state weather the storm from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Among a slew of immediate and near-term measures to support the nation to deal with the current crisis and uncertainties was an amount of S$5.6 billion to set aside to introduce two special packages, one being a S$4 billion Stabilisation and Support Package and another being a S$1.6 billion Care and Support Package.

Join us now at the Budget Highlights webinar as our tax experts share more insights on the national budget and key developments in Singapore and beyond.
