A foreign company incorporated outside Singapore may establish a business or carry on business in Singapore through a Branch. A foreign company is required by law before it establishes a place of business or commences to carry on business in Singapore to lodge certain documents for registration with the ACRA.

We assist in the preparation and filing of the necessary documents for registration of a Singapore Branch online via BizFile. We can also act as corporate secretarial agent for the subsequent compliance of the continuing obligations of a Singapore Branch, annual filing of accounts and the cessation of business in Singapore or liquidation of the Singapore Branch.

Any person who is carrying on business either as a sole-proprietor or in partnership with others must register a business name or limited liability partnership (LLP) with the ACRA.

We assist in the preparation and filing of the necessary documents for registration of a business name, or LLP, appointment of a manager, changes in registered particulars, termination of registration and renewal of Certificate of Registration for business names and annual declaration and accounts for LLP.

Foreign companies may have a presence in Singapore by establishing a Representative Office (“RO”). A RO has no legal corporate status in Singapore. Its activities are restricted by rules enforced by International Enterprise Singapore (“IE Singapore”) although there is no statute governing ROs at the present time. IE Singapore and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”) are responsible for the registration of ROs in Singapore.

IE Singapore registers ROs from the manufacturing, trading, trade logistics and trade-related services sectors while MAS registers ROs from finance-related industries.

We assist in the preparation and filing of the necessary documents for setting up of a Representative Office including the renewal of the registration.
