Is it also 30%?
For SG, capital gains are not taxable, so I don't think it would apply!

Wondering if there is any tax experts here that can comment whether it is true that if someone were to daytrade as a full time "job" (and doing in a most professional way possible with segerated accounts, gains/losses seperately tracked from any personal investments, etc) would that be characterised by IRAS as engaging in a trade/business and subject to income tax? This is even though underlying capital gains on personal account share trading not taxable.
Technically capital gains are not taxable. However, you may wish to clarify with your tax consultant as every person's situation is different.
If you are Singaporean Tax resident, it depends on if you need an income. Example of things that would require an income is taking a home loan, car loan, applying for a credit card.
You can choose not to declare too. Singapore does not tax any capital gains or dividends from trading activities.
