Clarification on enhanced Job Support Scheme and levy waiver and rebate for construction related sector
SCAL has received several enquiries from members on the eligibility for enhanced Job Support Scheme (JSS) and levy waiver and rebate under the Fortitude Budget.
BCA has since clarified that all construction related sectors are deemed not to restart work in the months from June to August 2020.
Hence, all construction and consultancy firms with eligible Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents will qualify for enhanced JSS support from June to August 2020, while construction firms with construction Work Permit Holders and S Pass Holders can qualify for levy rebate and waiver till July 2020.
This is regardless of whether firms have resumed any work within the months of June to August 2020.
