An overview of processing payroll in Singapore 

Many organisations have employees based in Singapore, both resident and non-resident, and there are many different aspects to pay based on the employee’s residency status including contributions to the Central Provident Fund (CPF), maternity pay and leave and income tax plus the foreign workers levy.

Employment law also includes the records that employers must keep as well as the different classifications of payments and the types of leave with the associated pay.

Having attended this course delegates will have confidence that they understand the fundamentals of payroll processing in Singapore, are clear about employer obligations, know what they need to do on a periodic and annual basis, can answer employee queries and check payslips.

Even if payrolls are outsourced it is still the employer’s responsibility to ensure all obligations are met and that income tax and social security are correctly processed. This course not only gives you the information you need to be compliant but also ensures you know exactly what information should be given to a payroll provider and the various tasks they should be completing on your behalf.
