About the session

Feeling the pain of paying higher income tax in the latest tax season? If you’ve recently received your Notice of Assessment (NOA) from the Inland Revenue of Singapore (IRAS), you might be baulking at the size of your tax bill. But there are actually ways to cut your tax bill — if you know where to look.

The Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS), for one, is an attractive income tax deferment scheme in Singapore that more Singaporeans and foreigners living in Singapore should take advantage of.

Come join us at our upcoming webinar — jointly organised by Endowus and CardUp — to learn how to utilise SRS to reduce your taxable income, maximise your retirement savings, and achieve peace of mind.

In this curated session, Chiam Sheng Shi, Business Development and Partnerships Lead, Endowus, and Candice Gallagher, Head of Payments Marketing, CardUp, will provide actionable tips and guide you through how best to use your SRS savings for retirement. They’ll also discuss the benefits of the scheme, and how to streamline your tax payments while earning air miles along the way. 

Topics to be discussed include:

  1. How income tax is calculated in Singapore
  2. An introduction to the Supplementary Retirement Scheme
  3. How to grow and manage your SRS savings effectively
  4. Different methods you can use to pay your taxes
  5. How to choose the best credit card for payments
  6. Benefits of shifting tax expenses onto your credit card
