How do we register your company
Company Incorporation in Singapore - 3 (4) steps:
1. Pre-incorporation / Name Search
- Check the name of the Singaporean company you want to register. Singapore’s official company portal - The Cyber Search Center of the Integrated Companies Registry Information System (RSI) - will help you find out whether the company name has been taken or not.
- Download the order form and send it to us.
- Startupr will check whether all requirements are completed once the application is received.
- Startupr will then proceed with the name search based on your preferred name, which will take half a day.
- Once the name has been approved, Startupr will prepare the relevant documents and email it back to you.
- You will return the duly signed incorporation documents to us via courier (scanned and emailed form might be accepted as well); and
- You will process the payment.
- Startupr will submit the application through an online system to the Singapore Registrar of Companies (“RoC”) (Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority) for one to two days processing; and
- You will get the notification e-mail from the RoC that the company has been incorporated (this is the official Certificate of Incorporation, no hard copy is issued).
- Startupr will send you documents to be signed. These documents will need to be dispatched back to us.
- Filling out the annual return and taking care of the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
4. Bank account opening
- Once you get all the documents (Certificate of Incorporation, Share certificate, Memorandum and Article of Association), Startupr will set up a meeting with an HSBC bank account manager to open a bank account. You do not need to travel to Singapore for bank account opening. However, you can choose to make an appointment in Singapore as well.
- Most of Startupr’s clients chose to open a bank account in Hong Kong for faster bank account opening. By doing so, they were also able to open a bank account with a lower initial deposit for set up requirement (5,000 HK$ - Business direct bank account).
Requirements to register your Singapore company:
- You do not need to be a Singaporean resident in order to open a company.
- You need to fill out your particulars (in Startupr’s application form) and send it back either online, by e-mail.
