2. What Is The Best Investment In Singapore?

Singapore is a developed country in Southeast Asia. Remarkably, Singapore has a very business-friendly climate and political stability. The Government has published many favorable policies with a view to attract foreign investment in Singapore.

These factors have contributed to the nation’s classification as the most open economy in the globe. In 2021, Singapore ranked 1st in the Index of Economic Freedom, with an index score of 89.7/100.

Consequently, this island nation has been a famous destination for massive foreign investments from investors all around the world. According to One IBC, the following industries are some of the best investments in Singapore:

  • Manufacturing
  • Finance service
  • E-commerce
  • Wholesale and retail trade
  • Transportation
3. Is Singapore classified as a tax haven?

Singapore is often referred to as an offshore financial centre (OFC). That means Singapore provides corporate and financial services to foreign investors on a scale that is out of proportion with the size of its domestic economy. The country is in the category of offshore financial centre because it offers attractive tax incentives. Along with low tax rates, there are also tax exemptions offered for businesses in certain industries, especially in offshore and global trading.

Banking secrecy is also another reason that put Singapore in the list of offshore financial centres. The country is in the top 5 of the 2020 Financial Secrecy Index. Its secrecy score is 65 and contributes over 5% share of the global market for offshore financial services.

Banking in Singapore is under the contractual duty of confidentiality imposed by section 47 of the Banking Act, which states that customer details shall not, by any means, be disclosed by a bank or its officers in Singapore, to any other entity except as mentioned in the Act.

By that definition, Singapore can also be classified as a tax haven. It has low "effective" tax rates and offers financial secrecy. It is also in the tax haven lists conducted by reputable international organizations.

Being listed as a tax haven does not mean Singapore is a bad choice for investment. In fact, despite the tax haven status, Singapore has proven itself as an international business center and a global commerce hub, continuing to be the ideal destination for business owners and investors around the world.

4. What are the requirements for a director in Singapore?

Companies in Singapore are required to have at least one director. A director is a person who is appointed by the shareholders to be in charge of managing the company’s daily affairs. The person must make the strategic and operational decisions of the company and is responsible for ensuring that the company meets its statutory obligations.

Every company in Singapore must have at least 1 director. Here are the basic requirements for a company director in Singapore:

  • At least 18 years old;
  • Of full legal capacity;
  • Can be of any nationality;
  • Ordinarily resident in Singapore: A Singapore Citizen, Singapore Permanent Resident or EntrePass/ Employment Pass (EP) holder.
  • An EP holder wishing to become the director of a local company must first get a Letter of Consent (LOC) from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
  • People with Foreign Identification Number (FIN) are advised to check with the relevant authorities (e.g. MOM/ ICA) on their eligibility before registering or designating (e.g. Director, Secretary).
5. What are the names that are prohibited to use for Singapore Company?

Are there any restrictions on company name in Singapore?

While you can easily register for a new business in Singapore, you should be careful when choosing your company name. It is advisable to perform a name check to make sure that your company name can be approved for registration by the Singapore Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) in the first place. Here are the applicable restrictions for a new company name in Singapore.

  • Undesirable. Your company name will be rejected if it contains offensive or vulgar words;
  • Identical to an already available company name in Singapore
  • Identical to an already reserved company name. There are companies in Singapore that have not been incorporated but have already registered their business name as a reservation to ACRA. Business names are reserved for at least 60 days, and up to 120 days. This is why anyone who plans to set up a new business in Singapore must perform a proper company name check.
  • Prohibited by order of the Minister for Finance. The word "Temasek" is prohibited to be used as a company name. Currently, this is the only word which the Minister has directed the Registrar not to accept for registration..
  • Certain words such as “bank”, “insurance”, “university”, and “education” are not in the criteria for Singapore company name restrictions, but are strictly used under Government authorities and will require permission before you can set up a new business.
6. What is the required documents for incorporation of a company Singapore?

Recently, incorporating a Singapore company is one of the most popular business options for sea changers. In addition, the Singaporean Government brings attractive tax incentives for startups and preferential policies which help them during their initial days.

However, the process of incorporating a Singapore company could be a burden for foreign business, as there are a few required documents that need to be filled and submitted to the Government.

7. How long will it take for incorporation process?

We can have your company approved by and registered with the Accounting Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) within 1 day once receiving signed documents from you.

8. Do I need to establish a company address in Singapore for my business?

A company address in Singapore may be useful for a foreign company for establishing its initial operations in Singapore. The reason for this is that it allows the foreign company to contract under its own name and take advantage of its existing reputation.

Each business is required to register a company address in Singapore where the company will receive all documents sent by the government.
