Minimum pay to evade ICT

Recommended Posts

5th Gear

How long must I be posted overseas? I think the minimum is definately more than $10K

 

Damn sian now. Real life opportunities (especially if you are running your own biz) don't come everyday. However, some powers that be think that NS obligations overrides my personal well being. Best part is those useless regulars who trumpet the importance of NS wouldn't last a week in the real world. I agree that protecting the country is important but nowadays I don't even know what "country" I am protecting anymore. Why must I be "Robert" while outsiders come in and snatch up all the goodies?

 

I think most of you guys can emphatize with how I'm feeling. Poke their mama smelly cheesepie if you know what I mean ..... :angry:

 

You are running cookies business?? hahaha..just joking..

Looks like the SAF got alot of $$$ to burn nowadays. My friend, a junior partner at a public accounting firm is earning >300k p.a. but still goes back for reservist every year. He's a corporal.

I have heard rumours that SAF will not send SAF100 to people earning above a certain amount. Does anyone know what is the minimum amount for SAF to consider someone too expensive?

 

As you said, it is a rumour. I heard it before, but after thinking about it, I believe it is not true.

 

Example, you earn $500,000 per mth. Annual of $6m

Income tax or 20% on $6m = $1.2m

1 day pay = $500,000/22 = $22,727.27

Call up for 3 weeks = 15 working days.

15 days pay = 15 X $22,727.27 = $340,909.09

 

Govt still earn $1.2m - $340,909.09 = $859,090.91

 

[laugh]

yep... i believe its just a SAF myth...

 

no matter how much one earns (unless posted overseas), one will have chances of being recalled for ICTs

 

those super high earners are small minority while average earners are the majority... so net net, the average salary of a company for a ICT will remain affordable to SAF [sly][sly][sly]

For non boss jobs (employees), I think SAF only pays the monthly salary. I dont think employer can claim variable portion (bonus, profit sharing, etc) and this part usually formed considerable portion of high salaried jobs (usually more than 50%). Although one may have an annual income of S$300k, his salary per month can still be around $10k. So SAF can still afford. For those that are bosses, SAF should be paying according to the annual income during the tax filing. I may be wrong. My 2 cents.

I am just a small fry in ICT. My position is easily replacable by a cheaper (and fitter) fresh grad. [:(]

 

 

Just go ICT. Treat as a well earned break. Of course, unless your work need you full time (incl no leave), then ask your company to write to SAF

Well...maybe unless you hold a significant post in a big company.

Heard from the older batch of ICT kakis in my unit.

There was 1 fellow who only join 2 ICT and then no more call up.

Heard that that fellow make it big, became a fund manager in a big financial company.

Coz as a fund manager, he may be holding a few hundred millions of client $$ and need to make proper investment. Therefore, due to the importance of his role, his company help to write in to defer about 2 - 3 times and from then on, no more call up.

 

I do not know how true is this.

 

But ICT is fun ma...just relax... provided if it is a slack unit and encik let them go home on time.

But if it is a siao on unit, then jialat liao...

Like my unit, a CSSB, only drivers, mechanics and medics, still need to go outfield every H K.

Somemore, the OC always screw up and in the end normally book out about 8pm.

 

Sianzzzzzzzzz
