Here's how you do it:
Eventbrite is required to collect Singapore Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the Eventbrite service fee from Singapore organisers. Eventbrite won’t collect Singapore GST on the Eventbrite service fee if you provide us with a valid Singapore GST registration number. Without your Singapore GST registration number, Eventbrite is required to collect and remit Singapore GST on the Eventbrite service fee at a rate of 7%.
NOTE: Consult a tax professional if you have questions about your tax obligations. Eventbrite is unable to offer tax advice.
