Singapore: Non-profit/For-profit Company Registry Requirements

Singapore is an attractive location for new technology enterprises because of its closeness to Asian markets, its ease of doing business, and its supportive policies of entrepreneurship and technological development. The World Bank has ranked Singapore for ten years in a row as the easiest place to do business in the world. In addition, INSEAD and the World Economic Forum have named Singapore the most “technology-ready” nation in 2015 (source).

Below are some resources for individuals hoping to set up companies in Singapore. See a detailed summary of company registry requirements here. See list of Singaporean company types here. After getting an overview of Singapore company incorporation, read the Incorporation Laws in Singapore here for the full details (Singapore Companies Act, Part III Division 1).

Note that in Singaporean company law, a “company” is defined as a legal entity separate and distinct from its directors and shareholders, and can encompass both for-profit and nonprofit organizations.
