for self employed like phv drivers, ICT might be better for them:

You can submit your Make-Up Pay claim via Manage NSmen Payments on the NS Portal, where you can select 1 of the following 3 claim options that suits you best. More info on each option can be found in their respective pages.

-Income Tax option: Based on the trade income in your Income Tax Notice of Assessment (NOA) for the year of your Operationally Ready National Service (ORNS) activity

-Average Income option: Based on the net self-employment income paid in the 6 months preceding your ORNS activity

-Replacement option: Based on the fees paid to stand-in doctors or bus and transport drivers engaged to cover your duties for the duration of your ORNS activity


Anyone??

For example, becos u go ICT, then miss deadline and kenna liquidated damages.... u never promote cos ICT/RT, you go for ICT/RT then cannot drive grab then lose income....

if self employed for example; coder.

you can earn 2k/mth but only work 3days a month.

but when you go back IPPT/RT, they pay you 24,000/365 * half day pay = 33 dollar/day.
rank pay alone is around 30 dollar.

then u fill up the ultra long and tedious form to get back 3 bucks

u know going to ICT, doesnt shift your deadline.

if ur project has 2 weeks to finish, and u need to go for 8days ICT during that period. good luck explaining your way out of liquidated damages

since he only work 3 days a month, then take it that the ICT are days he doesn't work loh.

and forgo the $3 since it's so troublesome for him.

if self employed for example; coder.

you can earn 2k/mth but only work 3days a month.

but when you go back IPPT/RT, they pay you 24,000/365 * half day pay = 33 dollar/day.

Sounds like a one-man army company.

Better close down. Who hire you also jialat. So little buffer for mistakes.
Plan to fail
