    Key things to know when setting up a company in Singapore



    Determine the company type

    Choose the type of company structure you want to adopt.
    *Learn more about "Type of Entities". 


    Choose a company name

    The first step is to choose a suitable name for your company. Once the name application is approved, you can proceed to incorporate the company.


    Determine the type of business activities

    You may register up to two business activities. Some type of business activities will require certain licenses or permits.
    For example, Food and Beverage (F&B) and Financial Services.


    Appoint director(s), company secretary, and other key personnel

    You need to have at least one (1) Director and one (1) Secretary who are local residents.
    We are able to provide nominee services where required.


    Initial capital and shareholders

    You must register at least one (1) Shareholder as the first subscriber to the Company.
    The Shareholder (either an individual or corporate) must hold at least one share with a nominal value.


    Registered office

    You need to provide a locally registered office address. A "registered office address" refers to the place where all communications and notices to the company are addressed to, and the place where the company's register and records are kept.


    Decide on the financial year-end

    You must decide on the first financial year-end ("FYE") and the accounting period of your new company.
    This will determine when your corporate filings are due. Common choices by companies include 31st March, 30th June, 30th September or 31st December.


    Have a constitution in place

    The constitution is a legal document that:

      • Describe the key characteristics of the company
      • Contains the rules and regulations for its governance
      • Describes how its operations will be carried out
      • States the rights and responsibilities of the directors, shareholders, and company secretary.

    We are able to assist you in drafting this document.

    What is next after Incorporation?

    Incorporation is the first step in setting up a company in Singapore. However, what comes after this is equally important.
