Letter with salary breakdown required for PR application

Postby Cherylchew » Thu, 29 Mar 2012 7:37 pm

hi guys ... serious help needed. i'm a sporean and my husband is a msian.
So basically he applied for pr and recently ica send us a letter stating that they need my husband'd company to write a letter with his designation, date of employment and salary breakdown for the last six mths together with his payslip. The problem is, my husband is working in fnb line and it's privat. eg: his boss rent an unit from the coffeshop and work there. Thus his wp is with coffeshop. His under work permit and coffeshop just submit is salary as 1k per mth, but he's actual salary is more than that. When we filled up the form, we indicate salary for basic is 1k and gross at 2.5k. So, how am i suppose to write the letter wih salary breakdown ? As i've check for allowance and commission is taxable so i cant write that in. Help needed!!

Why does the coffee-shop declare he earns $1000 when he earns $2500?

Confused :???:

sorry ... ok ... wp is with coffeshop, his boss just rent a stall from coffeshop and he work at the stall. His salary is from his boss and not the coffeshop. The coffeshop can only issue wp this only declare 1k. understand ? hmmm ....

Coffeshop - landlord
His boss - tenant
His pay - from his boss

If his boss is paying him cash in hand then this is illegal, otherwise how else is his salary being declared to IRAS?

So his WP is with the coffee-shop, but he works for and is paid by someone else (?).


That sounds complicated, I won't try and answer as I don't know. Wait until the experts come along later...

You can forget PR. He is a willing partner to defraud the Singapore Government of rightly due taxes that should have been due to Inland Revenue. Because of this, He is probably being threatened by his employer as well because both the employer will get fined once found out (and possibly jailed as well) and your husband will also be fined, jailed and upon release from jail, deported and banned from re-entering Singapore.

The best thing he can do is quit while he can, find a different job and try to do it right this time, cause at the moment, he's got himself between a rock and a hard place. He is a willing accomplice to a crime against the government.

You could, but it won't work because his FIN number will always remain the same. Therefore, every application he will make will still go into the same electronic and hardcopy file with the previous ones. Therefore it may just raise even more questions.

It only changes IF you become PR.

Frankly, your best bet would be to immigrate to Malaysia.
