MPF refers to “Mandatory Provident Fund”. Hong Kong started MPF system since December 2000 in response to the rapidly ageing population issue in Hong Kong.
The MPF contributions have 2 parts: 5% from employee and 5% from employer. Totally 10% of employee’s relevant income. Moreover, the employers must make mandatory contributions for their employees with their own funds. The employers must also deduct the employee’s contributions from his/her relevant income for each contribution period.
The current minimum and maximum relevant income levels are $7,100 and $30,000 respectively.
The employer must first calculate the minimum and maximum relevant income levels of the wage period. The calculation must base on the daily minimum and maximum relevant income levels of $280 and $1000.
The weekly maximum relevant income level is $7,000 ($1,000 x 7 days). Then the weekly minimum relevant income level is $1,960 ($280 x 7 days)
