# ERP Human Capital Management … ERP Human Capital Management Payroll Spaces SAP HCM Payroll APJ SAP HCM Payroll Singapore CPF Contribution Apportion Method for CPF calculation

Apportion method is new method of calculating the CPF only for cases where there is some unpaid Additional wage (AW) and Total wage (TW) < 1500. If the total wage < 1500, then for both employee and employer CPF contribution rates will be applied on TW but not separately on OW and AW.

CPF to be paid = Actual base (employee is eligible /399 + /309) * Total
CPF contribution on TW / Total wage (including /310 amount)

For Example: An employee joined on 2011 with age < 35yrs has OW as  60,000 SGD in 2011. AW ceiling for 2012 would be 25,000 SGD. The EE is terminated in September'12.
Below are the details of OW and AW payout for EE in year 2012.

CPF calculation in September'2012 month using apportion method.

EE CPF contribution on TW (459 + 587) = ( 1046 - 750 ) * 24% + 120 = 71.04 + 120  = 191.04
ER CPF contribution on TW = 1046 * 16%  = 167.36

Prorating the calculated CPF to 459 ( 1046 - 587, because 587 is unpaid to CPF)
EE CPF = 459 * 191.04 /  1046    = 83.83  = 83 (after rounding)
ER CPF = 459 * 167.36 / 1046    = 73.44   = 73 (after rounding)
