With obligations to many shareholders, corporate governance is key for a public listed company. This helps companies stay transparent and ensures that all shareholders are kept satisfied with how the company is run. But all these “back-office work”, which form the backbone of a public listed company, can often take you away from the main focus of your business. Instead, let BoardRoom take these responsibilities off your hands and allow our experts to help you stay compliant and keep your stakeholders happy.

Private Limited Companies In Singapore

Private Limited companies in Singapore have the option to transform their business into a publicly traded company through a process known as Initial Public Offering (IPO). This milestone transformation that some private companies in Singapore have chosen to undergo can be propelled by many reasons such as raising capital, enhancing the status and financial standing of the company and increasing the public awareness and interest in the company and its products and services.

Companies that are ready to go public have progressed beyond their initial development startup phase to a certain magnitude. These companies have become profitable and are on route for further significant growth.

Startups in Singapore

It is thrilling to begin the process of running your own business. Most begin as startups – young companies initially financed and operated by a single or handful of founders. But before you begin, there are several steps and regulations to understand before you get there.

In The Spotlight: A Short Guide To Incorporating Startups in Singapore

2018-10-09
startup line 1

Decide on which type of company you would like to incorporate. Business entity types include sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability partnership, and limited partnership companies. Most startups would fall within the category of private limited companies.

2018-10-09
startup line 2

Register your company. This can be done with the help of ACRA.

2018-10-09
startup line 3

Gather your shareholders. Should your company have 20 or less shareholders (who are not corporations), you may choose to set up an Exempt Private Company. This helps ease compliance complications as certain Exempt Private Companies need not lodge their financial accounts with ACRA.

2018-10-09
startup line 4

Fill key positions within the company. Positions, such as the positiong of the Director, would have to be held by a person above the age of 18.

2018-10-09
startup line 5

Your Director would have to be Singaporean. But there are other occasions an E-pass holder could also become a Director, this is subject to the Ministry of Manpower’s regulations.

2018-10-09
startup line 6

Hire a company secretary. Within 6 months of incorporation, the company is required to appoint a company secretary who is residing in Singapore, not the sole director of the company, and meets the minimum qualification according to ACRA. BoardRoom offers the provision of local directors, secretaries, and authorised representatives for companies. Find out more here.

2018-10-09
startup line 7

Appoint an auditor. This has to be done within 3 months of incorporation unless your company meets the requirements for exemption from statutory audit.

2018-10-09
startup line 8

Not local? If you are a foreigner in Singapore, you are required to appoint a local director and also engage the services of a registered filing agent to submit the online application on your behalf.

2018-10-09
startup line 9

Submit your Company Constitution to ACRA. Your Constitution should list:

  • Key characteristics of the company
  • Rules and regulations of how it is to be internally governed
  • How operations are carried out
  • Rights and obligations of its participants including shareholders, directors, and company secretaries.
2018-10-09
startup line 10

Register your company with Bizfile. Once your company has all of the information ready, you’re ready to set it all up!

  • The fees involved in incorporating a company are:
    • Registration Fee: SGD$300
    • Business Name Application: SGD$15
  • All shareholders, directors, and company secretaries cited in your application must endorse their application online within 120 days of your application.
