Dependent Self-employed - do I need to pay Medisave?

Postby chrissi3 » Sat, 23 Jun 2012 12:27 pm

Hi
I am working on Dependet Pass as a self employed instructor and I am wondering if I have to pay medisave contribution.

Just got a bill and thought this applies only to PRs.

What does Medisave mean? All the websites are just confusing me :???:

can anybody help?

thanks a lot

Q: Can a Dependant's Pass holder work in Singapore?

A: If a Dependant's Pass (DP) holder wishes to work in Singapore, the employer is required to apply for a Letter of Consent (LOC). The DP holder can only begin working after the employer has received the LOC.


Medisave is apply to Citizen and PR.

this applies to employed people.

But how can a self-employed person ask the " employer " for the LOC?

There must be something else.

Any ideas?

thanks a lot

Why did you post this link? Not a word about Medisave.

Ok, seems this forum is not the right place to get any useful advice.

Thanks anyway

Look - if you are not a Singapore citizen or a PR, then CPF does not apply to you. This includes the Medisave component.

Capiche? Comprende?

Chrissi, the folks here are trying to help, so no need to be so aggressive.

It's a little difficult to be sure about any liability without knowing the legal basis that you are working under. As I understand it (and if I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me), the options for a DP holder are either an LOC, or a sole proprietorship or partnership. Which category do you fall under?
Be careful what you wish for
