How much will it cost?
Incorporation, Unlimited Corporate Secretary, Address, Nominee Director
All fees included
To register your company, we will need your company name, and shareholder details. We prepare an application and submit it to ACRA, the registration body. The whole process can be as fast as 1–3 hours. Our fee includes the S$315 government fee.
Unlimited Corporate Secretary
Usually secretaries charge for each document they prepare. Our Unlimited service covers all standard resolutions you might need throughout the year. You won’t have to pay extra for things like change in officers, registered address, business activity or distribution of shares.
Most agencies charge a Security deposit for the Nominee Director service. We don’t. When you employ a Nominee from us, you just pay a yearly fee, that’s it.
We provide you with an address, notify you about your correspondence, scan, and send it to you. We can even forward the real letters if necessary, you’ll only need to cover the mailing expenses.

As a foreigner, here’s what you need to start a business in Singapore
You only need to fly once to open a bank account, everything else can be managed online. You don’t have to hire any local employees, either
The most complicated and expensive feature for a foreigner. The company can have many directors, but at least one must be a Singapore resident. If you don’t have anyone to play the role, hire a nominee director.
A nominee formally holds the director’s position, without authority to run the company. He is a company officer on paper, necessary to meet the requirements of the law.
A Singapore resident certified under various regulations. This officer is responsible for lodging and filing in time all necessary documents required by law.
