FREquently Asked QuestionS

Do Applicants Have To Be Singaporeans

Businesses that wish to apply for the Productivity Solution Grant have to have at least 30% of the business’ ordinary shares held by Singaporeans or Permanent Residents.

How Many Times Can A Company Apply For PSG

A company can apply for PSG for every new technology solution. For example, if a company applies for the grant and receives a 80% subsidy for the EPOS POS machine, they can still apply for the grant with a different technological solution.

Companies can only apply for PSG for the same solution more than once if it is for a different outlet under the business. This means that a company can receive 80% subsidy on two or more EPOS machines as long as they are for different outlets. 

Is There A Cap To The PSG Approved Grant

There is a grant cap of S$ 30,000 per business, this cap resets on the 31st of March every year. This means that applicants that have hit their $ 30,000 budget will only be able to qualify for PSG again after 31st March.

*Certain equipment and IT solutions might be subjected to further cost caps.

Can I Apply For PSG After Signing A Contract With EPOS

No you cannot. In order to enjoy the subsidy of the PSG, you have to apply for it before you make the purchase.

It cannot be done after signing or making any payment to a vendor.

What Does PSG Subsidy Cover

The PSG grant only covers the purchase cost of the equipment, delivery fee and installation fee.

Unless stated otherwise, anything else is excluded.  

What Is A Pre-Approved Vendor

IMDA has pre-scoped both vendor and solution in order to simplify the application process. Being a PSG pre-approved vendor allows applicant to apply for the SME grants with confidence as it removes the uncertainty on whether the tech solution is eligible for the grant.
