What is the Skills Development Levy (SDL)?
The Skills Development Levy (SDL) is a compulsory levy imposed under the SDL Act for all your employees, including foreign employees, working in Singapore. The SDL is in addition to CPF contributions.
Currently, CPF Board collects SDL on behalf of the SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (SSG). The SDL collected is channelled to the Skills Development Fund (SDF), which is used to support workforce upgrading programmes and to provide training grants to you when you send your employees for training under the National Continuing Education Training system.
The SDL and SDF are administered by SSG.
For more information, please visit SSG’s website or call their call centre at 6785 5785.
