Procedure to Register Company in Singapore

Registering a company in Singapore is a streamlined process designed to be fast and efficient. Here's a breakdown of the general steps involved:


  • Understand requirements: Familiarize yourself with the regulations set by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA).

  • Choose a business structure: Decide on the most suitable structure for your company, such as sole proprietorship, partnership, or limited liability company (LLC).

Company Name and Documents:

  • Reserve a name: Check for availability and reserve your desired company name through ACRA's BizFile+ portal.

  • Gather documents: Prepare necessary documents like shareholders' and directors' details, business activities description, and proposed share capital.

Incorporation and Post-Registration:

  • Submit application: Once documents are ready, submit your online application for company registration via BizFile+.

  • Sign documents: After ACRA approval, electronically sign the incorporation documents, including the company constitution.

  • Open corporate bank account: Establish a corporate bank account for your registered company.

Additional Considerations:

  • Company secretary: Appointing a company secretary is mandatory for most LLCs.

  • Licenses and permits: Depending on your industry, you might need additional licenses or permits to operate legally.

  • Corppass: Register for a Corppass to access various government e-services for your business.


For detailed information and guidance, refer to the official ACRA website's guide on setting up a local company. You can also find helpful resources from the GoBusiness Singapore portal.
