From 21 April 2020, more than 62,000 employers in Singapore will benefit from close to S$675 million in the first wave of levy rebate payouts. This will be disbursed to eligible employers who have paid at least one month of levy due in 2020.
Employers do not need to apply for the levy rebate. They will be informed once the rebate is successfully paid to them. In the meantime, employers can check their eligibility and the amount of rebate they will receive here.
This comes after the Government’s previous announcement at the 6 April 2020 Solidarity Budget that it would provide employers with a Foreign Worker Levy rebate of S$750 for each work permit or S Pass holder. This is on top of the waiver of the Foreign Worker levy that is due in April 2020.
“The initiatives are meant to provide additional support to help employers to care for the upkeep of foreign workers during the Circuit Breaker period,” as shared by Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
