Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) is a statutory board of the Singapore Government under the Ministry of Finance in charge of tax collection. Auto-Inclusion Scheme (AIS) for employment income is a scheme in which employers submit electronically the employment income information of their employees to IRAS. The submitted information will then be automatically included in the employees’ income tax assessment. For more information, visit the IRAS’ website.
From Year of Assessment (YA) 2017, participation in AIS is compulsory for employers with 10 or more employees, or who have received the "Notice to File Employment Income Of Employees Electronically" under the gazette for S68(2) of the Income Tax Act (204KB).
The AIS registration for YA 2017 has ended. Registration for YA 2018 will begin in 2nd quarter of 2017.
The due date for e-Submission is 1 Mar every year. Employers are encouraged to submit by 10 Feb. For amendment file submission, the deadline is 31 Mar 2017.
