Singapore company registration depends on whether you’re local or not

For foreigners, there’s a legal requirement to hire local directors, so the company incorporation costs more. The company formation process for locals is more straightforward. We help both locals and foreigners with company formation.

How to register a company in Singapore in simple steps

  • Check in via MyInfo

    Step 1 Check in via MyInfo

    If you have a MyInfo account, it’s as easy as simply logging in for you. We’re integrated with MyInfo and will automatically access all the documents needed to file for incorporation on your behalf. If that doesn’t work for you, simply send us an IC or passport copy and the details:

    Details we need to register your company:

    • Shareholders’ details
    • Directors’ details
    • Your registered address
  • Book your company  name

    Step 2 Book your company name

    Singapore government charges a S$15 fee for checking and reserving the name for your future company. You won’t have to pay it as we’ve already got that covered for you. We’ll also help choose a name that doesn’t stall the incorporation process: nothing that mirrors a name that already exists or uses words such as ‘bank’ or ‘school’ that would require you to go through extra approvals.

  • Get your company registered

    Step 3 Get your company registered

    We prepare all the documents for you and send them to ACRA so you can have your company registered in minutes. Everything happens 100% online: we gather all your information and fill in all applications. The next step is for you to sign it electronically. Once the company has been incorporated, we upload your documents and the Bizfile+ into your Osome account.

    Here are the key documents we prepare:

    • Company constitution
    • Consent to act as a director
    • Incorporation application
  • Open an account: start paying, get paid

    Step 4 Open an account: start paying, get paid

    You will need a business account to process your payments and invoices, and we can help you get one. We partner up with OCBC Bank: they can open an account for you the same day you get your company incorporated. Or you can choose one of the other business account providers we work with. Either way, we introduce you to our partners’ network and help with the KYC documents. The decision to open an account for you is always up to the banks.

  • Deal with the official requirements

    Step 1 Deal with the official requirements

    Singapore welcomes foreigners to open their business here, but you have to hire local experts. You’ll have to employ a Nominee Director, a Corporate Secretary, and maintain a local office. You also need a certified agency to apply for incorporation on your behalf. We help with all these requirements.

    Here are the key requirements:

    • Corporate Secretary sends reports to government agencies
    • Nominee Director acts as a director on paper and is legally responsible for business
    • Registered Address for your official correspondence with the government
  • Get your company registered

    Step 2 Get your company registered

    We handle the process 100% online: collect your documents in a chat, process KYC for all directors and shareholders, fill in all the necessary documents, and send them to you so you can sign them electronically. Once it’s done, we submit the application to the Singapore government agency, get your company registered, and upload all data into your Osome account.

    Here are the key documents we prepare:

    • Company constitution
    • Consent to act as a director
    • Incorporation application
  • Open an account: start paying, get paid

    Step 3 Open an account: start paying, get paid

    You will need a bank account to receive money and pay your invoices. We partner with a variety of local banks. We recommend foreigners to open an account with one of our partners. They process KYC online and can have your account set up and ready within days. You won’t have to go anywhere for it.

    If you want a bank account with one of the traditional banks, you will have to fly to Singapore and visit the bank in person. Right now, this option is unfeasible. Remember, we present you to our partners, but the decision to open an account is always up to banks.

  • Set up the accounting routine

    Step 4 Set up the accounting routine

    As a business owner, you’ll need to submit several accounting & tax reports to the local authorities. We’ll handle your day-to-day bookkeeping, prepare reports, and keep track of the timelines to submit them. You will get a Chartered accountant dedicated to your business who will proactively advise on exemptions and reliefs, so you pay taxes smartly.

    Here are the reports we file for you:

    • Unaudited Financial Statements
    • Estimated Chargeable Income
    • Corporate Tax Return

What does the incorporation cost depend on?

To register a company in Singapore, you need to pay government fees of S$315 for name-checking and application. Singaporeans can apply themselves, and foreigners should hire a certified agency to apply on their behalf.

Both foreigners and locals need a Corporate Secretary that reports to the government. For foreigners, there’s a legal requirement to hire local directors and have a registered Singapore address. Foreigners who want to relocate need a visa that allows them to work and stay in Singapore.

Q&A

  • What are the requirements?

    To register a Singapore business, you need to have a local address, a corporate secretary, a resident director. Paid-up capital starts at $1.

  • What does the process look like?

    We check that the company name you’ve chosen is available. You send us your IC or passport copy, details on directors and shareholders. We prepare all the necessary documents, send them to you for electronic signature, and submit them to ACRA (a government entity that registers companies). On your end, it’s just a message thread in a secure chat. Once a UEN has been issued, your company is operational.

  • How long does incorporation take?

    Once all the documents are ready, it usually takes us less than an hour to incorporate a company. It mostly depends on when you are comfortable providing all the details and the authorities’ service hours. Our record stands at 38 minutes, and we keep getting better.

  • Do I need a company address?

    Yes, all Singaporean companies must have a local registered address. It goes on all legal documents. If you don’t have an office address, use our service. We handle your incoming letters, scan and store them in your Osome account so you have easy access to all your documents. You can also use your residential address as your company address if your business is not going to disturb your neighbours. You might need additional approval from authorities for this.

  • What’s Corporate Secretary?

    A corporate secretary is a person responsible for all necessary documents required by law. For example, issuing company resolutions, managing regulatory filings and maintaining company books. Every Singapore business must have one. This critical role requires various certifications and involves a lot of responsibility.

  • Who can be a director?

    Anybody above 18 years old can be a director, Singapore locals or foreigners. You can have as many directors as you want, or it could be just you.

  • What does the process look like?

    We check that the company name you’ve chosen is available. You send us your IC or passport copy, details on directors and shareholders. We prepare all the necessary documents, send them to you for electronic signature, and submit them to ACRA (a government entity that registers companies). On your end, it’s just a message thread in a secure chat. Once a UEN has been issued, your company is operational.

  • Do I need a company address?

    Yes, all Singaporean companies must have a local registered address. It goes on all legal documents. If you don’t have an office address, use our service. We handle your incoming letters, scan and store them in your Osome account so you have easy access to all your documents.

  • Who is a Nominee Director?

    A nominee formally holds a director’s position, without any actual decision-making powers or authority to run the company. His only obligations are to act in the interests of the company and in compliance with the law.

  • Do I need a resident director (Nominee Director)?

    Your company can have as many directors as you want, but at least one needs to be local. If you do not have someone who can play the role, hire a nominee director. For example, there can be two directors: you and the nominee. If you apply for Employment Pass from your new company, you only need the nominee service while you’re waiting for it (about six months). After that, you can be the only director.

  • What is an Employment Pass?

    It’s a type of working visa issued per specific company to invite foreign professionals, managers, executives, and technicians. It allows you to work exclusively for that company, live and bring your family to Singapore. It’s valid for 1 or 2 years. You can renew it afterwards.

  • Can I transfer an Employment Pass or Dependant’s Pass I have to my new company?

    No, EPs/DPs are issued per one specific company. You can only work for the employer that sponsors your visa. So after you’ve incorporated, your new business has to apply for your new EP. Do it seamlessly: there’s no need to cancel your old EP before getting the new one.

  • How long does the company registration take?

    Once all the documents are ready, it usually takes us less than an hour to register a company. It mostly depends on when you are comfortable providing all the details and the authorities’ service hours. Our record stands at 38 minutes, and we keep getting better.

  • Can I move to Singapore if I open a business there?

    Sure. There’s a special type of visa called Employment Pass you can receive within about six months. To qualify you have to pay yourself a salary of about S$6,000, especially if you plan to bring family under Dependants’ Passes.

  • What are the requirements to get an Employment Pass?

    It’s an employment visa, so your professional qualities and fit with the company will be evaluated. We will file your CV with relevant professional experience, education data and the company profile to get the visa. The most important factor is your fixed salary amount that the company commits to paying you. It needs to be no less than S$6,000, especially if you want to bring immediate family under Dependants’ Passes.

  • What is ACRA?

    ACRA stands for the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Singapore. It’s responsible for regulating business registration of corporate entities, financial reporting, public accountants and corporate service providers in Singapore.

    ACRA’s job is to promote enterprise by creating a good environment for businesses in Singapore to thrive, thereby making Singapore the preferred country to set up and grow businesses.

    It’s also referred to as the Registrar of Companies (ROC). Don’t be surprised when you see these two terms - ACRA and ROC used interchangeably.

  • Who must register with ACRA?

    All businesses carrying out any activity for profit on an ongoing basis must register their business with ACRA through BizFile+. There are exceptions.

    You don’t have to register your business with ACRA if:

    1. You conduct your business using your full name as reflected in your NRIC, OR
    2. You conduct your business with one or more partners using their full names as reflected in their NRICs.

    The exemption above often applies to freelancers.

  • How to register a company on the ACRA portal?

    Step 1: Register Your Business Name

    You would need to be at least 18 years old to register a company on BizFile+ - the ACRA portal. Once you get access to the BizFile ACRA Portal, the first thing to do is to register your business name. The application fee is S$15. Once it has been approved, the name will be reserved for 120 days. Within this period, you must register or incorporate your company, otherwise, the company name will not be reserved for you anymore.

    Click eServices > Local Company > Start Local Company > Incorporation of Local Company

    Step 2: Register Your Company

    Within 120 days after ACRA approves your company name, you need to register your company on BizFile+.

    Click eServices > Local Company > Start Local Company > Application for New Company Name

    Step 3: Submit Information on Your Company

    The BizFile ACRA Portal will display an e-form. Here, you will enter all the details about your company such as a registered business address, the value of your shares, the identities of your shareholders. You should also submit supporting documents such as your company constitution.

    Step 4: Wait for Approval from ACRA

    Once you submit your details, ACRA will review them in 1-3 business days. If your application is approved, you will get a notification email from ACRA with an official e-Certificate of Incorporation attached.

    The whole process to register your company will cost you around $300.

  • What are the benefits of registering with ACRA?

    When you register your business with ACRA, it puts you at an advantage. Here are some of them:

    1. Members of the public can search and verify the details of your business and its owners, thereby increasing the trust of potential clients, partners or customers.
    2. It will be easier for customers to identify, find, and transact with your business.
    3. You can participate in government tenders when your business is registered, and gain access to intellectual property or patents for new products and technology which could grow your operations or increase productivity.
    4. You can get access to government funding and grants, such as those given by Enterprise SG
    5. You can organise your finances and separate your personal and business finances, reducing your personal liabilities.
  • How to be exempted from ACRA registration?

    Your business is exempted from registration if:

    1. You operate your business with your full name reflected on your NRIC.
    2. You conduct your business with one or more partners and all of you are using your full names as reflected on your NRICs.

    If you run a company with part of your name and you add other words to describe your company to the name, for example, Sarah’s Pottery, you would need to register your business.

    If you have doubts, feel free to drop us a question. Our corporate secretaries will be able to answer your questions based on their years of experience.

  • What is BizFile and BizFile+?

    BizFile is an information storage portal for companies in Singapore to upload, store and retrieve business data. It was set up in 2004. Since then, ACRA requires companies to submit all due filings online via BizFile. In 2016, BizFile went through a major system upgrade and was renamed BizFile+.

    Before 2004, a business owner had to personally go to the Registry of Companies to manually fill in and submit paperwork for any corporate-related tasks. This took up a busy entrepreneur’s time. For entrepreneurs, time is money.

    Since 2016, BizFile+ has enabled a business owner to access more than 400 services online. BizFile+ has reduced the time for entrepreneurs to complete corporate administrative tasks such as submitting statutory documents, and retrieving and buying information on business entities registered with ACRA. It's also the tool that companies use to submit due filings online and perform other essential corporate tasks.

    With the time saved from having to manually go down to ACRA to complete paperwork, business owners can get more done with BizFile+. Today, ACRA continues to make online data management simple, fast, and efficient.

    Anyone can access and log in to BizFile+ through the ACRA Portal.

  • Why shall I opt for company incorporation in Singapore?

    Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore gives you access to the expanding markets of the Asia-Pacific region. The taxes are low, the quality of life is high, and the legislation favours foreign businesses.

  • What do I need to do before I start my company formation in Singapore?

    OK, here is a little guide on how to prepare for using a company formation service in Singapore. There are things to decide on before submitting the papers, let us go through them:

    • You need to choose a company name, which we send to ACRA for approval.
    • You need a paid-up capital; $S1 is enough.
    • Setting up a Singapore company requires a local address: a real place in the city-state to receive official letters. If you don’t have one, you can use ours. We notify you about any correspondence, scan, and send it to you.
    • You must find a Corporate Secretary: a person certified under various regulations responsible for lodging and filing in time all necessary documents required by law. You can choose between the Essential and Unlimited packages: the former covers the regular activities, such as Annual General Meeting preparation, and the latter includes all and any resolutions such as change of directors, company address, share structure, etc.
    • You provide the list of directors, their IDs and contact data. A foreigner can’t run a business in Singapore if his company has no resident directors. Hiring a local nominee solves the problem. Having him, you can become a director yourself or appoint another executive from abroad.
    • You decide on the share structure and send us the list of the shareholders. There can be 1–50, both individuals or companies.
    • We use all the information you provide to design your company’s Constitution.
  • What documents do I need to prepare?

    We’ll ask you for this information:

    • Company name
    • Directors’ particulars
    • Shareholders’ particulars

    We’ll provide the following:

    • Corporate Secretary particulars
    • Nominee Director particulars (if required)
    • Local address (if required)
    • Company Constitution
  • How long does it all take?

    Once all the documents are ready, it usually takes less than an hour to incorporate a Singapore company. It mostly depends on when you are comfortable providing all the details and the authorities’ service hours. Our record stands at 38 minutes, and we keep getting better.

  • How I can get the company name approved?

    Before operating a business in Singapore, you need to register your company with ACRA. The first thing you need to do is choose a company name and submit your application through Bizfile+. The name cannot be the same as the name of existing companies. You can check this on BizFile+ portal too. The fee to register a business name is $15.

    After your company name has been approved by ACRA, it will be reserved for 120 days. You will need to register your business or incorporate your company within this time, otherwise, the name will be released and will be made available for other companies to register.

  • What are Private Limited Company, EPC, Subsidiary Company?

    A private limited company is a LLC in which the shares are held by less than 50 persons. Most privately incorporated businesses in Singapore are registered as private limited companies.

    An EPC is a private company with a maximum of 20 shareholders, where none of the shareholders can be corporations. An EPC can also be a company that is fully owned by the government, and which the Minister has gazetted as being an EPC.

    A subsidiary company in Singapore is a private limited company incorporated in Singapore where the majority shareholder is a corporate entity. It can be a foreign or local company.

  • What is ACRA?

    ACRA stands for Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Singapore. It is the government body that is responsible for the formation, regulation, and cessation of companies.
