Levies & Quotas for Hiring Foreign Workers
How to Calculate your Quota and Levy Bill
You can use MOM’s online tool to calculate your quota instantly by clicking here. This booklet is designed to help you estimate levy payments and understand how MOM calculates quota, so that you can make informed business decisions. Quotas and levies are applied to all work permit and S Pass holders to encourage employers to hire local employees.
Local full time employees are defined as Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PRs) who earn at least $1,000 per month. Local part time employees are defined as Singaporeans and PRs who earn at least $500 per month. For MOM’s purposes, two part time employees count as one full time employee. Employees here refer to the staff employed by your company under a contract of service. Employment Pass (EP) holders do not affect MOM’s calculations.
