Avoiding CPF?

Postby kc01 » Mon, 09 Aug 2004 6:05 pm

Hi all,

I am about to get PR in Singapore and read somewhere that it is possible to get around paying CPF by paying directors' fees twice a year or something. Does anyone know what that is all about?

CPF is actually a government retirement plan to "force" you to save for your future even if you are not even one bit interested in planning for retirement. Different CPF contribution rates are offered for different classes of people(Employees, Self-Employed etc
