Well all Singapore companies have this first three assessment years, after its incorporation, income tax exemption provided that the company is :

  • having at least 10%(or more) shares held by an individual person
  • is not an investment holding company (make sure you put correct SSIC code)
  • is not a property developer

Well I would say those conditions are not hard to meet and are applicable for majority of new startups.
