TAP visits 31 Belait business premises

Employees Trust Fund (TAP) through its Enforcement Unit visited business premises in Jalan Maulana, Belait District as part of TAP’s continuous  effort to ensure employers have undertaken the responsibility to register their local employees and contribute to the TAP and SCP schemes.

From the visit to 31 business premises, TAP inspectors found five local employees have not been registered to the TAP and SCP schemes. Employers who failed to present documents were instructed to be present at TAP office for further action.

TAP reminds employers on their responsibility to register and make contribution for their employees who are eligible to the TAP and SCP schemes.

It is mandatory for employees who are citizens and permanent residents of Brunei Darussalam to be registered and contribute to the TAP and SCP schemes; this includes part-time workers, contract workers, daily-paid workers, workers on probation who receive payments such as salaries, commissions or work allowances, or any workers who receive salaries or wages Under Section 26 of the Employee Trust Act (Chapter 167).

If found guilty of non-compliance, the employer will be fined not more than BND3,000 for the first offence and not more than BND10,000 for second and
subsequent offences.
