Do we need to pay any taxes related to the hiring of staff?

Local Employees (Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents): You will be required to pay Central Provident Fund contributions for each local employee at the specified rate calculated according to a percentage of their salary.

Foreign Employees: CPF contributions are not required for foreign employees.

In Singapore, employees are responsible for their own income tax payments and Employers are not required to withhold any income tax, with the exception of when an EP holder plans to leave Singapore, in which case a tax clearance certificate is required.
