Boost Your Tax Savings for 2013!

Productivity & Innovation Credit for Singapore Companies

6 Ways to Boost Your Tax Savings with the PIC

The PIC scheme supports investments in Innovation and Productivity. Businesses

can enjoy huge tax savings in the form of Cash Payout and/or Tax Deduction when

they invest in any of these six productivity improvement activities:

1. Acquisition or Leasing of PIC Automation Equipment

2. Training of Employees

3. Registration of Patents, Trademarks, Designs and Plant Varieties

4. Acquisition of Intellectual Property Rights

5. Investment in Design Projects Approved by the DesignSingapore Council

6. Research and Development Activities

On your spending for accounting years 2010 to 2014 [Years of Assessment (YA)

2011 to 2015]

You can enjoy 400% tax deduction on up to $400,000 of your spending each year in each of the six activities.


You can apply to convert up to $100,000 of your total spending in all six activities

into a non-taxable cash payout instead of claiming tax deduction. This option may be more beneficial for businesses with low or no taxable income

If your company does not avail of this tax credit, you may very well be leaving 'cash on the table'. See additional details in this blog article published by Blue Ocean Systems Singapore: Are You Leaving Cash on the Table?
