The IR8A form is a document used in Singapore for reporting an employee’s income to the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS). Employers in Singapore are to issue the IR8A form to their employees by March 1st of each year, detailing their income earned and the taxes withheld for the preceding tax year (January 1st to December 31st).

The IR8A form includes information such as:

  1. Gross employment income
  2. Bonuses
  3. Contributions to the Central Provident Fund (CPF)
  4. Employment benefits
  5. Any other taxable income

Employees use the information provided in the IR8A form to file their personal income tax returns with the IRAS. It helps ensure that individuals accurately report their income and pay the correct taxes.
