GST credits

The Finance Ministry (MOF) says Singaporeans who have not signed up previously have until 31 December to do so to receive their 2010 GST Credits. 

As this is the last payout of GST Credits, the Government would like to encourage eligible Singaporeans who have not received their 2010 GST Credits to sign up immediately. 

They will also receive a reminder letter from CPF Board. 

MOF said as at end October this year, 2.4 million or 97 per cent of eligible Singaporeans had signed up and received $2.3 billion worth of GST Credits, given out from 2007 to 2010. 

Older Singaporeans received an additional $600 million in Senior Citizens’ Bonus. 

Singaporean households also received $750 million in Utilities-Save, Service & Conservancy Charges and rental rebates over the same period. 

Singaporean households will continue to receive U-Save, S&CC and rental rebates until early 2012. 

Singaporeans can, or call 1800-2222-888 for more information on the GST Credits or GST Offset Package.
