Posted by Matt Schmitt on 1/10/19 5:00 PM

Beginning on January 1, 2019, Singapore customs began charging for Networked Trade Platform (NTP) accounts and Value-Added Service (VAS) providers and introduced NTP-Lite Accounts.

NTP accounts will include full access to VAS and Singapore government e-services, with some additional advantages over NTP-Lite accounts, while NTP-Lite accounts will have a $0 monthly charge.

Singapore customs also provides a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for the NTP-Lite accounts including:

  • Government VAS at no charge;

  • Government e-Services that can be applied for;

  • How to switch to the standard NTP account.

For selected permits, Singapore Customs will require the supporting documentation to be submitted via NTP beginning February 1, 2019.
