EP Salary requirement, do they include Housing allowance?

Post by Schbang » Wed, 14 Jun 2006 5:44 pm

Hi, I'll soon be applying for an EP, but I'm not sure if I will qualify for a P1 or a P2. My basic salary alone will be below 7K, but with the housing allowance it will be over, any ideas? Does base salary include housing, and just exlude non-fixed bonuses? I know on the government site they refer to base salary, but the SG Tax office also refer base salary (yet include housing allowance).

Manay Thanks.

"Basic Salary" does not include:

*
additional payment by way of *overtime, bonus or commission;
*
traveling, food or housing allowance;
*
any sum paid to an employee or contract worker to defray special expenses incurred by him owing to the special, unusual or hazardous nature of the employment;
*
any productivity incentive payments;
*
any allowance however described;
*
any contribution paid by the employer or employee to any pension or provident fund; or
*
any gratuity payable on discharge or retirement.
based on this info from mom's website , housing allowanc should be out of the figure ?
