Revision of Goods & Services Tax (GST)

Based on the Singapore Government’s announcement in Budget 2022, GST rate will be increased from 8% to 9% with effect from 1 January 2024. As such, GST will be charged at 9% for any tax invoices or sale orders issued on or after 1 January 2024.

For those tax invoices or sale orders issued before 1 January 2024, but delivery date is scheduled on or after 1 January 2024, full payment must be received and reflected in our bank accounts on or before 31 December 2023. For cheque payment, please ensure the cheque reaches us by 28 December 2023 to ensure cheque clearance on time.

If no payment was made based on the above cut-off date, we are required to reissue a new tax invoice or sale order after 1 January 2024 to charge the GST at 9% according to the transitional rules for rate change by IRAS, and you must make payment based on the new tax invoices or sale orders with GST charged at 9%.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why is there a 5% Drop & Go Charge on my order?

A. We are dedicated to providing quality food and service to our customers. To ensure that we can continue to serve you at the highest level of quality and service, we have recently introduced a Drop & Go charge for Drop-off Catering, Bento Catering, Plug and Play and Personal Feast orders. We do this to help with the costs of preparing and packaging food. This is to ensure that we can continue to provide fair remuneration for our team who dedicate their time and effort to delivering successful events one after another.

This Drop & Go Charge covers:
     · Cost of packaging (i.e. microwavable containers and warmer bags for mini buffet orders, bento boxes, carton boxes),
     · Provision of cutlery,
     · Necessary labour to pack your food orders

From the processing of raw ingredients to the cooking and packing of food, catering is a highly labour-intensive industry. The cost of raw ingredients, labour and packaging along the food preparation process chain has also increased significantly in recent years.

This charge allows us to continue providing our customers with quality food and service, while also ensuring we remain financially viable as a business.

Q. Why is there a 10% service charge on my order with setup?

A. Catering is a service industry like all other food and beverage establishments. The introduction of a 10% service charge covers administrative and processing costs of waste management, labour, and equipment setup.

Many of catering's laborious tasks take place behind the scenes. There are many associated costs that most of our guests may not be aware of:
     (i) Procuring and maintaining buffet equipment (ie. cleaning of heavy and numerous equipment after every use, such as table skirting and buffet warmers)
     (ii) Manpower and disposal charges to collect and process food waste,
     (iii) Labour costs for delivery and setup of each order

While we have absorbed this cost for years, the rapid rise in overhead costs and labour costs has made it difficult to continue to do so.
