Rikvin Provides Singapore Company Setup Services Investors and entrepreneurs eye Singapore to be their ideal business destination. It is the easiest place to do business as evidenced in the 2011 Report of Ease of Doing Business by the International Finance Corporation of World Bank after canvassing 183 economies. Singapore’s business policy, especially covering the taxation, is among the world’s most attractive, whereby, newly incorporated companies are privileged with tax exemptions. Certain types of business entities are indulged with tax incentives as well. Technology is among the specialties of the city-state, which boasts as having the world’s most sophisticated in information, communication, infrastructures, and transportation. Resting at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, it provides the crossroads for east and west, thereby, providing the gateway to unlimited business opportunities. Businessmen may start a private limited company for a corporation, limited liability partnership for a combination of corporation and partnership, and public company. Each of these organizations features unique characteristics and require different requirements. Say Hun, Rikvin’s business specialists enumerates these differences. “A private limited company is formed by three different individuals occupying the positions of resident director, shareholder, and company secretary,” begins Say, emphasizing that a resident director is the head of all directors and must be of ordinary residence. Having an ordinary entails being a local or a permanent resident. “Obtaining an Employment pass shall qualify a foreign individual to earn the title of a resident director.” Of course, bankruptcy and conviction of malpractice must not characterize any of these three individuals. A limited liability partnership may be formed by two partners. Foreign individuals, by holding an Employment pass can be among the partners. There must also be a local manager should the LLP be owned by a foreigner or foreigners. Both the private limited company and limited liability partnership enjoy legal existence different from their shareholders, partners, and directors. Thus, these individuals are protected from unlimited financial liability. Moreover, their shareholders or partners may be natural living persons or corporate body. A public company, on the other hand, can be limited by shares or guarantee. Say Hun resumes explicating the difference. “A public company limited by shares has shareholders numbering to fifty. Its capital can be raised by offering shares and debentures to the public. Whereas, a public company limited by guarantee has its shareholders limited to twenty. These shareholders agree to pay a certain amount in case of winding up.” Foreigners cannot personally register any company in Singapore because they have to earn their eligibility first. By earning their eligibility means they must have legal permission from the authorities and the legal permission can be derived from a Singapore Personal Access Card, National Registration Identity Card, Blue Card, or Labor passes like Employment, Entrepreneur, and Dependant pass. Foreign investors are restricted by local authorities to apply for a labor pass unless they have successfully registered their company.
