    Hi,

    IR8A: The IR8A is a "Return of Employee's Remuneration." It is provided to employee's by their employer and supplies the information necessary to complete the employee's income tax return.

    IR8E, IR8A and IR8S issued by the employer relating to employee income for the preceding year

    Form IR21 -Tax Clearance for Foreign Employees: An employer is required to complete Form IR21 (Notification of A Non-Citizen Employee's Cessation of Employment or Departure from Singapore), when seeking tax clearance for the non-citizen employee.

    For more information:

    http://www.iras.gov.sg/ESVPortal/iit/iit-se-a1.1.10.1.1+contribution.asp

    Income Tax Form IR8E (employer does e-submission) or Form IR8A (employer does not do e-submission) of member and other members in his household. The Income Tax Form IR8E that is required is the one which u201CIncludes payment and deductions for Performance and Related Bonusu201D. An employee in the Civil Service or Statutory Board can obtain his IR8E from PacGov.

    Thanks,

    Devi

    Thanks Pratyush and devi for your replies.

    Devi, when you say e-submission that means the emloyer is using e-submission as ouptput option then use IR8E.

    When output option is IRAS line then we use IR8A..

    Is my understanding correct?

    Regards,
