FAQ

 

Company Incorporation: Key Considerations

  • At a minimum, you will need the following Officers to set up a company in Singapore:

    One local company secretary

    One local company director

    A local registered address

    One shareholder (Could be 100% non-resident owned, individual or corporate)

    Minimum paid-up capital of $1.00

    A local Director or Secretary is a person whose normal place of residence is in Singapore. They have the legal right to live in Singapore long-term - e.g. Singapore citizens, Singapore PRs, Employment Pass (EP) holders (who can only hold Directorship of their own companies).

  • As a non-resident, you will need to engage a Registered Filing Agent (RFA) like Piloto Asia to incorporate your company in Singapore. Self-incorporation by non-resident individuals or entities is not allowed under the Singapore Companies Act.

  • Singapore companies’ records of Directors and Shareholders are publicly accessible. Any individual who wishes to access such info could purchase a company’s Bizfile from Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) at a fee.

  • You can run your Singapore company offshore, and you would not require a visa to do so. When you need to visit Singapore for business, a short-term visitor visa could be arranged. However, each company will need at minimum a local resident director. Piloto Asia can assist you in that regard and act as your local nominee director.

  • Generally, there is no limitation to the kinds of business activities you could carry out in Singapore. However, do note that certain activities will require proper licenses. These include educational institutes, employment agencies, financial services, liquor/tobacco distributors, moneylenders, restaurants, travel agencies and the import/export of goods.

    There are different capital requirements for licensed business activities that you may wish to pay attention to and consult with your accountant.

 

Incorporation Timeline & Preparation

  • The whole process from engagement to officially opening a business with a corporate bank account could take no more than 4 weeks.

    Week 1: Engagement planning & confirmation of scope

    Week 2: Incorporation - Company name check, director's appointment, shareholders appointment, secretary appointment

    Week 3-4: Bank account opening

    Week 5-8 (if required): Once your company is set up, we will help you with your Employment Pass (EP) application enabling you to stay in Singapore long-term for work. We’ll coordinate and liaise with the Ministry of Manpower on your behalf.

  • Personal shareholders

    Certified* copy of the current passport for all Directors & Shareholders.

    Original or certified* copy of residential address proof of above persons

    Proof of business

    Should you require the Nominee Director service, then legitimate business proof is required. Please provide the following documentation:

    Management accounts for the most recent financial year

    Other business proof such as recent contracts or invoices

    If these documents are not available, please provide either a personal tax statement or bank statements for a three-month period for each Director

    Corporate shareholders

    Power of Attorney (POA) or Official Authorization Letter issued by Parent Company (e.g. Notarized or with company seal) to authorize respective personnel to sign & execute on documents pertaining to Singapore entity (including but not limited to AGM, EGM, incorporation, bank account opening, etc.)

    Passport copy of the authorized signatory stated in POA

    The corporate shareholder’s Certificate of Incorporation

    Memorandum and Articles of Association / Constitution

    Extract of Company’s details from the Registrar of Companies / Business Profile / Certificate of Incumbency

    Identify proof (Passport & residential address proof) of the ultimate beneficial owner (UBO) – Certified and in English*

    Recent Financial Statement of Parent Company

    *Copy may be certified by practicing lawyer / CPA / Notary Public / Bank / Singapore Embassy; Official translation is required if the original document is not in English

  • Piloto Asia’s expert consultants will help our clients determine the optimal corporate structure for their businesses.

    There are several ways of incorporating a company in Singapore, the most common being the LLC or Limited Liability Company. Whether it is set up as a standalone under an individual shareholder, or a Singapore subsidiary to an international operation, the LLC is one of the most popular choices considering tax benefits and government support scheme available.

    In Singapore, an LLC can be a:

    Private Limited Company - by far the most flexible type of incorporated business in Singapore.

    Public Limited Company -an LLC that can offer its shares to the general public.

    Public Company Limited by Guarantee - Meant for non-profit purposes.

 

Common Types of Business Structure

  • Non-resident companies wishing to set up a presence in Singapore can choose to incorporate an LLC (a fully owned subsidiary company), a branch office, or a Representative Office. As non-residents cannot set up Singapore companies on their own, you must engage a professional firm in Singapore to perform the incorporation.

    For the most part, the differences mainly lie in entity type, liabilities, tax and filing requirements. A key point to note is that a representative office is not allowed to engage in any business activity except market research and liaising activities.

  • For non-resident companies intending to set up in Singapore, we generally recommend a subsidiary setup, as it is regarded as a separate legal entity from the parent, and the parent’s financials need not be filed with Singapore authorities. Also, a subsidiary works like a normal Singapore Private Limited Company, which is treated as a tax-resident and enjoys local tax benefits.
