The Singapore government makes it easy for us to build up on retirement funds by incentivising it with tax cuts. In a nutshell as seen in the diagram, you have 3 main ways to shave off some savings from the taxman. Some key points to note:

  • Overall tax relief cap of $80,000 per individual
  • If you have PTR(Parenthood tax rebate) and other tax reliefs, most of the time you do not have to make any voluntary contributions at all to avoid the taxman
