A potential employer wanted a candidate to start employment immediately and will help to "Buyoff" / "Buyout" the salary-in-lieu that is payable by the candidate to his existing employer. Is CPF contribution payable on this payment?

CPF contribution is payable on the cash payment made by the potential employer to the candidate which is an inducement, incentive or on a condition that the candidate joins the employer.

CPF contribution is not payable if the potential employer makes the payment to the current employer directly, as there is no employer-employee relationship between the payer and the payee.
