  • Do I need a corporate secretary

    Yes. Singapore Company Law requires every company to appoint a corporate secretary. They are essential for reporting on statutory changes to company details, handling important admin and helping you understand your obligations as a business owner.

  • Can a Singapore company operate without a secretary?

    No. The Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority mandates that every Singapore business must hire a corporate secretary within the first 6 months after incorporation. This position cannot be vacant for more than 6 months. Your company secretary must be a Singapore resident.

  • Can I be a corporate secretary myself

    If you’d like to. First, you need to have all the qualifications of a Corporate Secretary plus 5 years of experience. Second, you have to be a Singapore citizen, or a permanent resident, or an EntrePass holder. Finally, you can’t be both the only director and the Corporate Secretary.
