Over the years, we have assisted several local and overseas individuals and corporations to incorporate their companies in Singapore. We have itemised a Top 10 things to prepare prior to registering and setting up a Company in Singapore.

1 Proposed Company Name - Provide us 3 most preferred Company Names. We will assist to check the availability of these names. In some circumstances, proposed names can be conflicted with other existing companies and business. An appeal may be necessary before the desired name can be approved and registered.
2 Shareholding composition - Provide us the list of shareholders. Shareholders can be individuals and/or even corporate entities. With effect from 31 March 2017, companies are required to maintain beneficial ownership information in the form of a register of registrable controllers; hence, it is essential for us to identify the beneficial owner(s) of the Company.
