So payroll executives from Finance or HR professionals need to calculate the correct amount for the contribution to CPF, and provide the net salary to the employees who are Singapore Citizens or Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR). The employer also needs to know their total payroll expenses so as to know their Payroll Liability each month.
Calculating CPF Rates for Employees & Employers in Singapore
I have created a simple Excel spreadsheet to calculate the CPF Rates and Amounts in Singapore in this matter. If you wish to use this you can fill in your own Singapore Citizen & PR employee’s details, their age & basic pay, and the following is automatically calculated:
- Employee’s contribution,
- The employer contribution,
- Total CPF contributions,
- Total payable to CPF,
- Net salary to the employee
- Gross Salary expense of the employer
The spreadsheet uses simple formulas that are already pre-programmed. So you can just begin to use this spreadsheet for your company. It has been tested for CPF Contribution Rates in 2022 and beyond, and everything will work smoothly.
Increase in CPF contribution rates from 1 January 2022
- The CPF contribution rates for employees aged above 55 to 70 have been increased.
- The increase in the CPF contribution rates will be fully allocated to the employees’ Special Accounts to provide a bigger boost to their retirement income.
- For those earning monthly wages of more than $500 to $750, the employee contribution rates will continue to be phased in.
- There are no changes to the graduated contribution rates for first and second year Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs).
