Declaring annual salaryShow

As a PEP holder, you need to declare your current year's salary to us by 31 January of the following year.

Fixed annual salary = fixed monthly salary × number of months worked in the calendar year.

You worked with Company A from 1 January 2018 to 31 April 2018, earning a fixed monthly salary of $15,000. You were unemployed for 2 months and started employment with Company B from 1 July 2018 to 31 December 2018, earning a fixed monthly salary of $20,000.

Your fixed annual salary earned is:

Salary from Company A for 4 months = $15,000 × 4 = $60,000
Salary from Company B for 6 months = $20,000 × 6 = $120,000
Fixed annual salary for 2018 = $60,000 + $120,000 = $180,000
