SINGAPORE - About 880,000 Singapore households will receive a GST voucher of up to $95 to offset part of their utilities bills in October, said the Ministry of Finance on Monday (Oct 2).

Households living in 1- and 2-room HDB flats will receive $95, while those living in 3-room and 4-room flats will receive $85 and $75 respectively, said MOF in a statement.

The annual Utilities-Save rebate, one of three components under the permanent GST voucher scheme, is distributed every three months and aims to help lower overall household expenses
.
The rebate has helped households in 1- and 2-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about three to four months of their utilities bills on average a year, said the MOF.

For households in 3- and 4-room HDB flats, the annual rebate helps to support about one to two months of utilities bills.

The rebate is expected to cost $265 million over a year, starting from July, said the MOF.
