CPF Contribution
 

CPF Contributions for Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs) from
1 January 2014
 

CPF contributions are payable at graduated rates once a foreign employee becomes a SPR. During the employee’s first two years of obtaining SPR status, they and their employers have the option to jointly apply to CPF Board to contribute at higher prescribed rates.

(Also applicable for SPR in the 3rd year and onwards of obtaining SPR status)
 
Option (1) applies once your employee obtains his SPR status. The day he obtains the SPR status refers to the date indicated on the entry permit (Form 5/5A) that is issued by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore.

For options (2) and (3), the employer and employee must jointly apply to the Board using the form CNR/PR/94A. Once the application is approved, it is irrevocable. These rates will cease to apply upon a change of employment within the first two years i.e. the rates will go back to the graduated rates.
