900,000 HDB households to receive GST voucher rebate in July

About 900,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher - Utilities-Save rebate in July, the Ministry of Finance announced on Monday (Jul 2).

Utility rebate

The rebate, which is part of the permanent GST Voucher scheme, is distributed every three months. It helps HDB households offset part of their utilities bills and serves to lower overall household expenses. The U-Save rebate is expected to amount to S$280 million over four quarters, starting from July 2018.
