  • The company’s business activities
  • Details of directors, and shareholders
We will take care of other requirements: details of local-resident director, corporate secretary, local physical address, and company’s constitution.

The company registration in Singapore is rather straightforward and fast. Once your application is submitted to ACRA, you can expect to receive the result in just 24 hours.

The Singapore company incorporation cost will depend on what your needs are. Our Basic package will help you cover all the minimum requirements and it cost you US$2,499. But if you’ve already got a local director, the fee will cost less.
According to the Companies Act, every company in Singapore must have and maintain a local director who local resides in the country. When you use a service to hire an eligible person to satisfy this requirement, that person is known as a “nominee director”. He/she will barely take part in your daily management tasks.
Yes, you can. You can get an Employment Pass and move to Singapore to work for your company as a director. At the time you take the job, you will be considered the local-resident director of your company. This means you no longer need a nominee director. Hence, you can become a sole director of your Singapore company.
After incorporation, your company will need to open a bank account to transact with customers and business partners. You can further assign your secretary to register for CorpPass accounts (to transact with the government), CPF (if hiring local staff) and GST (if needed). During its course of operation, your company will also need to comply with the local laws. Annually, it has to file reports to the related government agencies.
