A branch needs at least two local agents who are “ordinary residents” to act on behalf of the company and to accept service of process and any notice required to be served on the corporation who are either

  • a resident in Singapore or
  • holder of an Employment Pass or
  • holder of Approval-In-Principle letter or a Dependent Pass

The functions of these agents are limited and the role and responsibility of them is less demanding and onerous than that of directors of incorporated companies.
