Singapore implements a progressive income tax structure for resident individuals. The rates range from 2% for taxable income exceeding SGD 20,000, and go up to 22% for income over SGD 1,000,000. In addition to income tax, the city-state operates the Central Provident Fund (CPF), a national pension scheme. This requires contributions from both employers and employees, at rates of 17% and 20% respectively, on ordinary monthly wages up to a ceiling.
