The Singaporean government requires employers to submit turnover information in the Employment Pass Online portal to be able to submit new work pass applications.

Key Points:

  • Employers must update their annual turnover information in their EPOL to submit new work passes.
  • Prior to January 2022, employers were permitted to mark the past year’s turnover information as $0 or “unavailable”; Singaporean authorities are now rejecting applications that have not provided accurate turnover information.
  • Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, employers should provide their turnover information for the 2022 fiscal year as soon as possible to avoid work permit application processing delays.
  • Employers whose financials for the 2022 fiscal year are not available can mark it as unavailable and provide the turnover information once it is available.
  • Turnover information can be submitted through this website.

BAL Analysis: Employers are advised to update their turnover information as soon as it is available to avoid work permit application rejections and processing delays.
