How is GST applied to my account?

  • If you have a postpay threshold or monthly invoice account, GST is added onto your billing threshold amount. For example, if your billing threshold is S$100 SGD, your card will be charged S$107 SGD (S$100 SGD + 7% GST). Learn about billing thresholds.
  • If you have a prepay account, some of your prepay funds will go towards taxes. For example, if you added S$100 SGD to your prepay account, S$6.54 SGD would cover taxes and the remaining S$93.46 SGD would cover advertising charges.
