During the PR application process, you will be required to submit IRAS Consent Form for PR Application. It is your consent to allow ICA to obtain your income tax assessment details from IRAS directly.
Salary and income is one of the important criteria for PR Application approval. However, ICA needs third-party confirmation about your income in the preceding years. Since IRAS is responsible to conduct the assessment of your income and charging taxes, ICA can get these details from IRAS.
However, these two are separate government departments. And to obtain such a piece of information from IRAS, the ICA needs your approval. IRAS consent form is the document giving them the approval to access this information.
There is no complexity involved here. It’s a simple 1-page consent document. You just need to sign this document and scan the copy. Store it in PDF format and the size of the file should be smaller than 2 MB.
During the application lodgement process, you upload the IRAS Consent form for the main applicant in the same section where you upload annex A. There is a separate upload option for this.
IRAS Consent Form for PR Application is a quite straightforward document that you need to sign and submit to the ICA.
