Rikvin Explains The Difference Between On Sole Proprietorship VS Limited Liability Partnership Rikvin says that both the sole proprietorship and limited liability partnership are favorable among businessmen. In Singapore, foreign investors are allowed to own 100% of the business stocks and management. “A Singapore sole proprietorship is very flexible as it rests full control of business in a single person, who is the proprietor,” says Rikvin, a company based in Singapore committed to assist businessmen, companies, and employees. “The revenues of a sole proprietorship are taxed on a personal level with progressive tax rates. Thus, the business itself is not subject for auditing, and it is not required to file annual returns with ACRA and IRAS,” Rikvin adds. It continues: “As the sole proprietor maintains full authority, the owner can decide on how the business is managed, which assets are purchased by its revenues or how the earnings are used.” “The downside of the sole proprietorship is the absence of legal existence, which causes the sole proprietor to have unlimited liability which covers even the personal assets. The business also cannot own assets,” Rikvin continues to elucidate. During registration, the sole proprietorship has to submit documents such as a Description of principal activities, local business address for the proposed business, declaration of compliance and statement of non-disqualification, and a copy of Singapore ID of the owner or the passport containing the personal information of the holder in case the proprietor is a foreigner. Meanwhile, the limited liability partnership is different. “Formed by at least two partners, the limited liability partnership Singapore is cloaked with legal personality. Thus, it can own assets purchased from its own revenues,” Rikvin continues. “The best thing about having a legal personality is the protection from financial liability. Each partner is liable for his own decision and which does not affect all other partners,” chimes Rikvin. Thus, the liability is limited to each partner, rather than to all. During registration, partners have to comply with requirements such as the articles of organization, declaration of compliance, particulars of the partners such as ID or passport, and company registration details in case one of the partners is another business. “In case of absolute foreign ownership, a local manager is appointed. Based on the Business Registration Act and Limited Liability Partnership Act, a local manager ought to have ordinary residence,” says Rikvin. Lately, the Ministry of Manpower stipulates that foreigners seeking to occupy the position of a local manager ought to have its prior approval.
