Biography

Vincent’s practice focuses on tax and trusts, subjects which he teaches in his full-time role as a Lecturer at the Yong Pung How School of Law, Singapore Management University. His publications include Singapore Trusts Law and both tax law volumes of Halsbury’s Laws of Singapore. Prior to his current role, Vincent was Deputy Head of Tax at a Singapore law firm. 

Vincent’s tax practice spans the full range of contentious and advisory tax matters, covering Income Tax (Personal and Corporate), Goods and Services Tax, Stamp Duties, International Tax, Property Tax, and Tax Offences. His private wealth practice focuses on bespoke wealth and succession planning, utilising tools such as trusts, will trusts, family offices, insurance, and companies (including VCCs), as appropriate for the particular needs of each client.

Vincent seamlessly blends perspectives from these two practice areas in his structuring and legal advice. His experience with tax dispute resolution informs his advisory work and he is able to stand by his legal opinions, advocating for his clients before the Revenue and all levels of courts in Singapore.
