Question 2:

The Big Bang Company was set up by Ed, an Australian resident. It is incorporated in Singapore and has two directors who are resident in Singapore and who hold board meetings in Singapore. Each director has two shares in the Big Bang Company, which they hold on trust for Ed. The Big Bang Company owns real property, all of which is outside Australia, and makes its profits from commercial property leases on a large scale. Ed does not attend the board meetings in Singapore; however, the constitution of the Big Bang Company provides that the decisions of the directors are only effective if Ed concurs with them.

The directors carry on all operational activities, such as collecting rent, paying commission, finding tenants, making minor repairs and maintaining the buildings.
