UnderstandWhat is FWL?<p>The Foreign Worker Levy (FWL), commonly known as "levy", is a pricing mechanism to regulate the number of foreign workers in Singapore. As an employer, you do not have to pay Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributions for your foreign workers. However, you must pay a monthly levy for Work Permit and S Pass holders via General Interbank Recurring Order (GIRO).</p><p>CPFB handles FWL collection, waiver and refund requests on behalf of MOM. For any enquiries, please visit <a href="http://www.mom.gov.sg/passes-and-permits" target="_blank">MOM's website</a> or contact them directly.</p>647647
ApplyHow can I apply for waiver of the FWL?<p>First, check if you are eligible to apply for a levy waiver as an employer who employs a  <a href="http://www.mom.gov.sg/passes-and-permits/work-permit-for-foreign-domestic-worker/foreign-domestic-worker-levy/apply-for-levy-waiver" target="_blank"> domestic foreign worker</a> or <a href="http://www.mom.gov.sg/passes-and-permits/work-permit-for-foreign-worker/foreign-worker-levy/apply-for-levy-waiver" target="_blank"> foreign worker for your company</a>.</p><p>To apply, you need to submit an <a href="https://www.cpf.gov.sg/eSvc/Web/Employer/MyRequestEmployer" target="_blank">online waiver application</a> within one year after the levy has been charged.
