You should apply to e-submit your CPF contribution details using CPF e-Submit@web as soon as you intend to hire your first employee. To apply, you will need your SingPass and entity's Unique Entity Number (UEN).
Upon approval, you will receive our email and welcome letter containing your CPF Submission Number (CSN), Payment Advice (CPF91) and GIRO application form. Please quote your CSN when transacting with the Board e.g. paying CPF contributions or writing to us.
You have a grace period of 14 days to pay CPF contributions after the end of the month for which the CPF contributions are due. If the last day of the grace period falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Public Holiday, CPF contributions must be paid by the next working day.
CPF e-Submit@web and GIRO payment
CPF e-Submit@web is a free web-based application developed by CPF Board, where the CPF contribution details are submitted electronically via the CPF website, and the payment is deducted electronically via GIRO. Payment via cheques or cash is not accepted.
For 'Last Day' GIRO deduction, the GIRO deduction will take place on the last day of the grace period (usually on 14th). If the 14th falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Public Holiday, the deduction will be effected on the next working day. E.g. The last day of the grace period for submitting CPF contributions for January 2012 is 14 February 2012. If you e-submit your CPF contribution details on 1 February 2012, the GIRO deduction will take place on 14 February 2012.
For 'Next Day' GIRO deduction, the GIRO deduction will take place on the 3rd working day from the day of submission. E.g. If you e-submit your CPF contribution details on 1 February 2012, the GIRO deduction will take place on 3 February 2012.
However, if you e-submit your CPF contribution details on 13th or 14th of the month or late, GIRO deduction will only take place on the 3rd working day from the day of submission.
Regardless of the GIRO deduction option chosen, there is no need to wait until the last day of the grace period to perform e-submission. Employers are advised to e-submit earlier and avoid waiting until the last day of the grace period as the volume of employer traffic may be high.
