There are many ways to get your tax credits back: check, GIRO, PayNow, or telegraph transfer. Sometimes IRAS’s effort to return your tax credits may fail to be successful; for example, maybe you have left Singapore, or perhaps your postal address or bank account still needs to be updated in our systems. When this happens, IRAS will try to contact you to return your tax credits.

GST and Corporate Tax refunds are not accessible by check. By August 31, 2024, IRAS will distribute the revised notifications of assessment. To get your returns, we advise you to connect your IDs to PayNow or register for GIRO.
