Singaporean Households To Receive GST Vouchers

The Government of Singapore has announced that more than 800,000 Singaporean households will receive goods and services tax (GST) rebates in January to help them meet the cost of living.

Under the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) scheme, those living in 1- or 2-room Housing Development Board (HDB) apartments are able to offset about 3 to 4 months of utility bills on average each year. Those living in 3- to 4-room HDB flats can offset about 1 to 2 months of utilities bills on average.

The GST Voucher – U-Save initiative forms one component of the permanent GST Voucher scheme, designed to help lower- and middle-income Singaporean households with their living expenses. The U-Save component is distributed every quarter.

In January 2016, eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to SGD65 (USD42), depending on their HDB flat type.
