How to submit and pay CPF contributions
 

Apply to e-submit CPF contribution details and pay via GIRO

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

CPF e-Submit@web is a free service provided by CPF Board where employers can submit your employees’ CPF contribution details and make payment electronically via GIRO. Payment via cheques or cash is not accepted.

Employers are advised to e-submit earlier for a smoother experience.

GIRO Payment

Why use GIRO?

  • Payment is within control
    • GIRO deduction occurs only after submission of contribution details.

  • Saves time and resources
    • Employers do not need to spend time writing cheques or queue at payment kiosks to make payments.

  • Open to all employers
    • GIRO can be used by all employers including those with few employees.

When will GIRO deduction take place?

CPF Board offers employers two GIRO deduction options for the payment of CPF contributions.

A) Deduction on the Last Day of Grace Period*

If employer e-submits the CPF contribution details on:

 

The GIRO deduction will take place on:

1st to 12th of the month

Last day of the grace period*

 

13th to last day of the month

 

3rd working day from day of e-submission

 

*Employers have a grace period of 14 days after the end of the month to pay CPF contributions. If the last day of the grace period (usually 14th) falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, GIRO deduction will be made on the next working day.

B) Next Day Deduction

If employer e-submits the CPF contribution details on:

 

The GIRO deduction will take place on:

1st to last day of the month

3rd working day from day of e-submission

 

What happens when the GIRO deduction is unsuccessful?

If the GIRO deduction is unsuccessful, CPF Board will inform you by mail and make the second deduction 7 calendar days from the date of the first deduction. Please note that some banks charge an administrative fee for each unsuccessful deduction. To avoid such occurrence and incurring late payment interest, please maintain sufficient funds in the bank account.

How to apply for GIRO?

Please complete the GIRO application form (also available at CPF Service Centres) and send it back to CPF Board. The application will be approved within 21 working days from the date the Board receive the application. Employers may check the GIRO application status here.

While the GIRO application is being processed, please use any of the following payment services to pay CPF contributions:

  • eNETS (for CPF e-Submit@web users);
  • ATM card at any AXS stations;
  • ATM card / Cash at any SingPost Offices; or
  • Cheque

Record of Payment (ROP)

You can view your electronic Record of Payment (eROP) when your payment has been processed. Please check your ROP and inform the Board immediately of any inaccuracy.
