Advisory and Updates 


In Budget 2022, the Minister for Finance announced that the GST rate will be increased from:

(i) 7% to 8% with effect from 1 Jan 2023; and

(ii) 8% to 9% with effect from 1 Jan 2024.

IRAS has given the guidance that 8% GST will be chargeable if payment is received by IAL from 1 January 2023. Payments received by IAL before 1 January 2023 will continue to pay GST at 7%. Please refer to for more information.


The COVID-19 situation in Singapore has stabilised. The Multi-Ministry Taskforce has announced further easing of community Safe Management Measures (SMMs) and adjusting of the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level from orange to yellow.

Currently, IAL adopts online learning for the delivery of our programmes. From 1 June 2022, IAL will resume blended learning for all programmes, except existing fully online WSQ Advanced Certificate in Learning & Performance (ACLP) cohorts, which will continue to be conducted online.

IAL will continue to monitor the situation and provide timely updates via our email and web channels in the event of any changes.
