Home e-Services Annual Contribution Return for Private Household

Annual Contribution Return for Private Household (Domestic service) Employers

 

Following amendments brought under the Business Facilitation Act 2017, the MRA has been entrusted with the function of collection of contributions/payments to the National Pension Fund (NPF), National savings Fund (NSF), HRDC Training Levy and Recycling Fee. As from 1st January 2018, employers are required to submit all returns and effect payments in respect of NPF/NSF contributions and Training Levy to the Director-General of the MRA.

 

With a view to facilitate employers, the MRA has put in place a system for e-Filing of annual NPF/NSF returns.

 

Household employers who have not submitted any monthly return and have not paid contributions for any month of the year ended 30 June 2018 have up to 30 September 2018 to submit an annual return giving the details of their employees and pay the contributions.

 

Where payments are required to be made, MRA strongly recommends household employers to use the Direct Debit facility put in place by the MRA. To avail of this facility, household employers should fill-in a direct debit form downloadable from the MRA website and return the completed form, duly signed by the authorised signatories, so that it reaches the MRA at least 15 days before the due date for payment.

 

Household employers should include the details of ALL their employees in the return.

Household employers should also ensure that the names of the employees are inserted exactly as they are shown on the National ID / NCID card of the employee.
