General Information

With effect from 1 Jan 2024, SFA will no longer be absorbing the GST increase.  Hence, customers may expect an increase in the SFA fees in their transactions with SFA.

SFA has ceased cheque payments for all payments (except composition fines) with effect from 1 October 2022, including at the service counters at Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre (PPWC) and Fishery Ports. An administrative charge of S$10 will apply for every cheque received, except for payment of composition fines.

There are several ways that you can make payment to SFA for the various types of transactions.
