ABSD has its uses – and it’s definitely not possible to avoid it for most people which is why it’s still so effective till today.

Not sure if this was asked before. Scenario, mum owns 3 properties and son none. Mum wants to get a fourth private property with son( his first property ) under tenancy in common. Mum holds 1% and Son holds 99%. What would be the ABSD on mum and son for this property?

Hi! When it comes to ABSD, it’ll be the full amount. Since mum owns 3 properties, the ABSD will be 25% of the full property value/price, whichever is higher, assuming she is a Singapore Citizen.
