Productivity and Innovation Credit (PIC)

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) provides local companies a generous subsidy for the purchase of qualifying equipment and software that can help improve business productivity and enhance innovation. Companies can choose between three types of subsidy (shown below):
  • 60% Cash Payout Option
  • 400% Tax Deduction/Allowances
  • Tax Deferral Option

Most small local companies will find the Cash Payout option attractive, since the subsidy is in the form of cash rebate. However, for the larger companies, the 400% tax deduction option or the tax deferral option may be more attractive.
