As only your base salary is used for purposes of PR Applications, I think you will still have problems as the current base salary for an EP is 4.5K/mo. As one gets more experience the MOM feels that salaries should go up commensurately. You might find it difficult to even obtain a renewal on your EP unless your salary shows some improvement. Bonuses and/or commission are not taken into accoun as these are flexible and not basic salary. For your education, I'd say your salary is quite low after 4 years with the company. If the company is not doing well enough to pay you, then it is also a possibility that MOM/ICA will know the company is not in good shape and that may hamper it as well. Additionally, you are competing in the "Others" category which makes it even harder. I wish I had a better outlook, but it is what it is. If applying under the Family Ties scheme, you will need to be married at least 2 years before you stand a chance using that route.

Big thanks for your input! Understand that salary level is quite low, but now is practically impossible to find a significantly higher salary job, esp when you are a foreigner.
It's a startup company, so there is an issue of not paying much to employees due to the nature of such companies
