Paying taxes as an expat

Originally based in The Netherlands, currently working in London and planning to once more go abroad for a two-year project in Singapore. How will this affect your financial status and taxes?

You just entered the London underground while your phone is ringing. It’s your boss, it seems to be urgent as he does not stop. It looks like he does not take no for an answer. You have no other choice but to return his call asap. The word is out: he wants you to move asap to Singapore to run a two-year project the company just won. You seem to be the man and he is most probably not in the mood to hear a no or have any discussions with you.
