BEFORE BUYING

What you need to know before forking out a tidy sum for it.

What’s the purpose for your purchase?

Whether you are considering a shophouse as a business office, residence, investment property or retail unit, determine whether the area you are looking at is a good fit for the purpose of your potential purchase. For instance, Chinatown has many shophouses being used as business offices and retail units, while Cairnhill and Emerald Hill are known as residential historic districts.

Find out more about zoning

Are you allowed to use your shophouse of choice for its intended purpose? Shophouses are officially zoned for different uses, depending on their location. Some shophouses are zoned residential, with shop units on the first floor and residential units on the upper floors.

Other shophouses are zoned commercial, but like those zoned residential, can also have shops on
the first floor and residences on the upper floors. Bars, food catering businesses and religious activities are among the uses not permitted on the premises of both residential and commercial shophouses. Depending on your intended use for it, you may need to obtain planning permission from the authorities. You can find out more about which activities require planning permission and which do not at the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) official website 

The pros and cons of conservation

There are several Historic Conservation Districts in Singapore, under which shophouses fall into three categories: Historic Districts, Residential Historic Districts and Settlements. There are different rules for buying and refurbishing shophouses in these districts.

For instance, shophouses in a Historic District such as Kampong Glam must be fully conserved, whether you convert the use of your shophouse to residential or commercial. In a Residential Historic District, the rules are less stringent, and you may make slight modifications to your shophouse. For full details on Historic Conservation Districts, study the URA’s Conservation Guidelines

CLAIMING GST

Shophouse, Before registration

Pre-registration GST Incurred on Goods

You must satisfy all of the following conditions:

  • The goods are purchased or imported by your business for the purpose of making taxable supplies (standard-rated supplies and zero-rated supplies);
  • For goods acquired within 6 months before the date of your GST registration, the goods are still held by your business at GST registration; For example: Trading Stock: GST incurred on your trading goods is not claimable if the goods have been sold prior to your GST registration date
  • For goods acquired more than 6 months before the date of your GST registration, the goods have not been consumed (i.e. used) or supplied by your business before the date of your GST registration; and For example: F&B and Hotel Accommodation: GST incurred on food and beverages consumed by your staff and hotel accommodation incurred by your staff before your GST registration are not claimable.
  • The pre-registration GST claims are not disallowed under Regulation 26 and 27 of the GST (General) Regulations.

Pre-registration GST Incurred on Property Rental, Utilities and Services

You must satisfy all of the following conditions:

  • The expenses are incurred by your business for the purpose of making taxable supplies (standard-rated supplies and zero-rated supplies);
  • The expenses are incurred by your business within 6 months before the date of your GST registration;
  • The expenses are not directly attributable to supplies made by your business before the date of your GST registration; and For example: General Adminstrative Expenses: GST incurred on your office rental, utilities and maintenance services for your business premises are not directly attributable to supplies made before registration.
  • The pre-registration GST claims are not disallowed under Regulations 26 and 27 of the GST (General) Regulations.

Apportionment of Pre-Registration GST

Pre-registration GST is allowable only to the extent that the goods or services acquired are used or to be used for taxable supplies made after GST registration. 

If some of the goods acquired within 6 months before your GST registration date have been sold, transferred or disposed of, you are required to apportion the GST incurred according to the actual units held at your registration date.

If the goods acquired by you more than 6 months before your GST registration date have been used to make supplies straddling your GST registration (i.e. supplies before and after GST registration) or have been partially consumed before your GST registration, you are required to apportion the GST incurred.

Similarly, if the services, property rental or utilities acquired by you are used to make supplies straddling your GST registration, you are required to apportion the GST incurred. Only the portion of GST that is attributable to the supplies made after registration is claimable.
