I encountered this many years ago.

One of the thing i found out is that your expected basic salary is higher than the company/ industry baseline hence they lowball your salary and added in allowance as a buffer.

This is normally the case EXCEPT if you are a cream of the crop. The swan among the ducks. If you are top class in your industry, normally HR/ hiring manager would consider higher expected basic salary. Otherwise you will just follow the baseline just like everyone else.

Also, some allowance like petrol allowance and handphone allowances are non epf deductible. So you might have some cash there too.
