11. I am selling/transferring my flat, how do I pay my S&CC?
Residents are advised to come down personally to the Town Council with the HDB’s appointment letter before the appointment date.

16. Why did I receive a reminder notice?
Town Council does not send a monthly tax invoice as the S&CC is a fixed monthly rate. Payments are due on the 1st of each month and if no payment is received by the 10th of the following month, a reminder notice will be sent to the residents to remind them of the outstanding amount payable, and late fee will be imposed. Please make your payment promptly to avoid being penalised.
