Starting from November 1, 2013, the minimum level of relevant income has been increased from HKD 6,500 to HKD 7,100 per month. You need to continue making the employer’s portion of contribution for your employees whose monthly relevant income is less than HKD 7,100, but please stop deducting the employees’ portion of contribution from their relevant income.
Please be reminded to make timely arrangement and update your contribution program / system to ensure that contribution amounts are accurately calculated and settled on time.
The change will give impacted employees a choice to decide whether to continue making regular contributions. As a caring employer, you may encourage your employees to continue making contributions on a voluntary basis so as to plan for their future.
Manulife will issue a Calculation Discrepancy Report (CDR) to notify you about the situation. The overpaid mandatory contributions will be kept in your company’s cash account until we receive further instruction from you.
As an employer, you should communicate the above with your concerned employee and proceed with a refund should he / she wishes to do so. Alternatively, you may advise the concerned employee to make voluntary contributions with the overpaid mandatory contributions. In this connection, when you get the consent from the concerned employee, please provide the said instruction by completing the CDR and return it to Manulife.
Effective from June 1, 2014, the level of maximum relevant income for monthly-paid regular employees has been raised from HKD 25,000 per month to HKD 30,000 per month. For contribution periods commencing on or after June 1, 2014, maximum mandatory contributions have been adjusted accordingly from HKD 1,250 to HKD 1,500 per month.
Employers need to update their relevant administrative arrangements, including the program / system for calculating salary and MPF contributions, and ensure that the contribution amount is calculated in accordance with the new requirements for contribution periods commencing on or after June 1, 2014. Please make timely arrangement to ensure that contribution amounts are accurately calculated and settled on time.
Manulife will issue a Calculation Discrepancy Report (CDR) to employers as usual. You should rectify the situation and settle any outstanding payment as soon as possible.
