Do I have to pay CPF Contributions for my foreign employees?

After much consultation with the administrative team of my company, we are now opening positions for foreign employees whether they are a permanent resident in Singapore or not. As an employer, am I also required to pay their Central Provident Funds? and if I am required to pay for their funds, what are the terms this?

    It really deends on whether they are a permanent resident or not. If you are paying the foreign worker levy for your foreign workers, you do not have to pay CPF contributions however you are required to pay the skills development levy. Work Permit holders will come under the CPF scheme if they become Singapore permanent residents
