Payroll Compliance Audit – Don’t Wait for CPF Audit!

The Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board takes a serious view on employers who do not fulfill their CPF obligations to their employees. It is important that employers pay CPF contributions promptly and correctly as many employees rely on their CPF savings for their retirement, healthcare and housing needs.

If there is any detection of late payment or non-payment of CPF contributions, CPF Board will take actions to recover any arrears or CPF contributions owing. Interest on late payment and a composition amount may be imposed on the defaulting employers.
