• Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS)

Attractive Tax Benefits

 

SRS reduces your taxable income by the same amount contributed to your SRS account with a maximum yearly contribution of S$15,300 by Singaporeans and PRs, and S$35,700 by foreigners. SRS contributions are subject to a cap on personal income tax relief of S$80,000 per Year of Assessment.

Opportunity To Gain Higher Returns

Uninvested SRS funds only earn returns of 0.05% per annum, therefore, investing your SRS funds is a way to make your money work harder, further growing your retirement savings.

Non-taxable Investment Gains

Any gains realised on your investments are credited directly to your SRS account and remain tax-free before withdrawal.

Flexibility To Make Withdrawals

Tax will be payable only when you withdraw your SRS savings (comprising both your SRS contributions and gains on investments). If you withdraw your SRS savings upon retirement, only 50% of the savings withdrawn will be subject to tax.

 

You may spread your withdrawals over a period of up to 10 years to meet your financial needs and enjoy greater tax savings.  For example, if you withdraw S$30,000 a year, you pay no taxes on the withdrawal, as half of that amount (i.e. S$15,000) falls within the zero tax rate.

  • Singaporean, Permanent Resident (PR) or foreigner
