Engage a Professional

It is mandatory for a foreigner to engage a professional business registration firm to register a business in Singapore.  Incorporation services are offered by professional firms like law firms, accounting firms, corporate secretarial agencies and service bureau.

If all the company directors, the secretary and shareholders hold Singapore NRIC, Employment Pass or Dependant Pass, you have an option to incorporate the company on your own without getting professional help (also known as Do-It-Yourself or DIY approach). 

Given that the process of business registration and company incorporation can be complex and requires specialised knowledge on compliance matters, the DIY approach may not be suitable for all Singapore residents.  Regardless you are a Singapore resident or foreigner, we recommend you to seek advice from a professional service firm to register on your behalf.
