Nominee Director

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.

Local Address

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.

Singapore is a great place to set up a business

The legal system is British, English is an official language and UK and Singapore have a Double Taxation Agreement, so you avoid being taxed twice on the same income.

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

Nominee Director

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.

Corporate Secretary

A Singapore resident certified under various regulations. This officer is responsible for lodging and filing in time all necessary documents required by law.

Local Address

A real mailing address in Singapore. It goes on all legal documents. It doesn’t matter where your company really is located — Osome will provide an address, notify you about your correspondence, scan and send it to you.
