Incorporation of a Singapore Limited Company


The most common type of business entity registered in Singapore is a private limited company. A limited company means that the liability of the shareholders does not extend to them personally, unlike a sole proprietorship or a general partnership. After contribution of the agreed share capital by the shareholders in full, any liability is with the company. The incorporation of a limited company establishes a separate legal personality for that company with the same rights and obligations of a natural person. It also becomes a taxable person in its own right.

The regulator for Singapore companies is the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) and all Singapore registered companies are governed by the Companies Act.

The governance structure of a company is codified in the company’s constitutional documents, i.e. the Constitution, otherwise known as the articles of association. The Constitution sets out the interrelationship between its organs and internal procedures they are bound by. All Singapore Private Limited Companies must have at least one director who must be ordinarily residing in Singapore.


Minimum Setup Requirements to Register a Company in Singapore

  • 1 Shareholder who can be an individual or corporate body
  • 1 Director who is ordinarily residing in Singapore. Foreigners holding an Employment Pass working for the company, may be appointed as the resident director for that company.
  • A resident Company Secretary
  • A physical Singapore registered office address
