Among all the available passes in Singapore, the Employment Pass (EP) is the best option for foreign entrepreneurs to incorporate their companies in Singapore and relocate to run their business.

  • What is the most suitable type of entity to incorporate?
  • What visas are needed for me and my family to relocate and work in Singapore?
  • What are the tax implications for corporate and personal taxes?

Choosing the best type of entity for foreign entrepreneurs

The recommended entity for foreign entrepreneurs is a private company limited by shares. Here’s why:

  • It’s a separate legal entity from the entrepreneur’s. This means personal legal and financial status is not affected even if the company is insolvent or being sued.
  • Funding for company’s expansion is easier through issuing of new shares to new shareholders.

“ With reliable guidance and high success rate that comes with 10 years of professional experience from Paul Hype Page, I received my employment pass renewal smoothly and will continue PHP annual compliance services to ensure smooth operational of my company.

Thank you. ”

Why an EP is the best option for you and your family

Your new company can now apply for your employment pass, and a dependent pass for your family. It is the best option due to:

  • High Chance of Success Rate for Approval and Ease of Renewal as MOM has no stipulated conditions
  • S$4,500 is the minimum monthly salary required to pay yourself as the entrepreneur, no extra pension or levies required.

What kind of taxes are you or your company subject to?

Commonly heard and known, Singapore has a favourable tax regime. Read more about it here. A company’s effective tax rate for the first $100,000 profit is estimated about 7%.

Personal Tax for yearly salary of $100,000 is estimated to be 5%.

What is the timeline to start incorporation and EP application?

Day 1) Register an account on our patented platform. Fill up our incorporation and employment pass form.

Day 5) After compliance team approval, Incorporate the company with our nominee services

Day 7) Review client’s Employment pass application and advise on the additional documents that maybe needed such as Business Plan, Tenancy Agreement and etc

Day 10) Submit Application to MOM and open company’s bank account

  • We are able to fund the company with up to $300,000 to secure a higher approval rate

Day 20) MOM may approve or request for additional documents

Day 30) Submit document after communication with MOM officer and working with client on the needed documents


Day 35 to 60 days) MOM will approve the application and once client secure employment pass, you can be considered a local resident director, you do not need the nominee director services.

  • Advise:
    The most important factor when setting up a Singapore business is to secure the visa for oneself and family members. Many professionals such as lawyer or tax advisor expert may not have the right experience in visa application hence resulted in client unable to relocate to Singapore after company is set up.


How long is the validity of my Employment Pass?2020-10-22T16:16:59+08:00

The validity of an employment pass is 2 years in general. 

How do I know if my company is successfully incorporated in Singapore before my relocation?2020-10-22T16:16:18+08:00

After your company has been successfully incorporated, you will receive the Certificate of Good Standing from ACRA and a Company Business Profile.  Once you have these documents in hand, you will be assured that your company has been successfully incorporated.

    Hi ,
    I am a singaporean holder planning to set up a local photography company with my foreigner holder (malaysian) . Can you guide me further with the procedures and details on how to go further about it. After researching, can i check if a upfront paid up capital of $50,000 is neccessary for applying an employment pass or base on case to case basis?

    Thank you.

    • Kumaran Tiwiyah March 5, 2020 at 10:10 am - Reply

      Hello Chris,

      Since you and a foreigner plan to set up a company in Singapore together, you must first fulfill all of the relevant requirements. Your company must have at least one local director and company secretary, a number of shareholders between one and 50, a registered address located in Singapore, paid up capital is minimum S$1,000 and an approved company name.
      There is no need for you to pay such a large amount of money to apply for an Employment Pass because we provide Employment Pass application services. Our fee is S$800. Please contact us for further information.

      Thank you for your questions.

    I want to open company and get e pass and dependent pass.
    How is it possible please guide me on this.

    • Kumaran Tiwiyah July 17, 2019 at 8:14 am - Reply

      Hello Nilesh,

      If you would like to open a company in Singapore as a foreigner, you will require the services of a professional firm to do so because foreigners may not incorporate a company on their own. You will also need documents which state details about shareholders, directors, the company secretary, the company name, business activities, the company’s constitution, and a non-PO Box registered address in Singapore.

      To apply for Dependent’s Pass, you will need to hold either an Employment Pass or S Pass, earn at least S$6,000 in fixed monthly salary, and be sponsored by a Singapore company.

      We will be of service to you regarding the opening of your company and application of work passes. Just contact us to find out more.

      Thank you.

    Hi there,
    I am Malaysia and has been living and working in Australia for the last 13 years. My husband (Australian) has been issued with an EP and his company is in the process of applying a dependant pass on my behalf. I intend to set up a company of my own to run a consulting business, would I be eligible being a dependant pass holder?
    Thank you.

      Hello Sam,

      As a Dependant’s Pass holder, you could own a company in Singapore. However, to work in the company, you will need to apply for EP after the company is setup.

      Our specialists can help you with both setting up a Singapore private limited company and allowing you to receive an Employment Pass. You may reach us via email or telephone for further information.

    Hi I’d like to enquire about the paid up capital when incorporating a company in SG. I understand that all it takes is $1. However if I am a foreigner interested in incorporating in SG and applying for an employment pass for myself what would a realistic paid up capital amount be in order to qualify for an employment pass? I was previously employed in Singapore on E-Pass for 3 years (2013- 2016). I am in the service industry (therapy services) and will be doing home visits. Would a paid up capital of say $5k in the company’s corporate account suffice?

    • Paul Hype Page December 12, 2016 at 4:23 am - Reply

      Dear Daisy,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      As you already know, there is no minimum for paid up capital when setting up a company. Based on our experience and knowledge, a paid up capital of $5k will be sufficient to apply for EP and set up a corporate account.

      We will send you some more information on incorporation and employment pass. Hope it can answer your questions.

    I incorporated a company in Singapore in 2012 with a Nominee shareholder. I live in India. I now intend to migrate to Singapore and take over the shares from the nominee shareholder except for 30% for local shareholder advantage.

    The company has 5 employees- 2 EP and 3 local employees.

    May I know the procedure to do the same? Should I apply for Entre Pass or Employment Pass?

      Hi Sathyam,

      Thanks for your interest.

      1. I already work 3 years as a restaurant manager in Brunei Darussalam.

      2. I wish to buy a running restaurant in singapore my investment is around 60000 $ my age is 49 can i get the e pass for me and my family.
      – Once you have your business running in Singapore, you can apply for your employment pass and dependent pass for your family.

      3. My son wish to study in singapore I want to know the fees structure for my son (singaporean fees or Foreign students Fees)
      – Depending on which school you apply for and your son’s age, estimated tuition fees for international primary school are from SGD$1,000 to SGD$2,500 per month.

      4. How many years take time to Migrate from E pass to PR
      – There is no fixed time frame for the migration as it depends on many factors that ICA will look into, including your contribution to Singapore during your time as an EP holder, tax payable and more. Some cases take 3 months while there are other cases that can take up to 2 years for result.

      Should you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

      It is absolutely possible to apply for an EP. As you probably know, the MOM and government is getting more strict regarding accepting foreigners, especially for the newly incorporated company, therefore it is crucial to choose the right partner who will assist you from A to Z with proficiency.

      Please let our corporate representative get in touch with you regarding this EP.

    Dear sir,

    I own a design consultancy firm in China and would like to set up a branch with a local Singaporean partner.

    I understand that I need employment pass in order to stay in Singapore and run my business. I also would like to have my wife here with me, that means I will need to apply dependent pass for her and my salary has to be more than 5000 SGD.

    My question are
    1. Since I am the shareholder of the company, I can give myself any salary. How does the MOM enforce I am really receive 5000SGD from the company?
    2. Since it only takes 1SGD to incorporate, it does not make sense if the shareholder’s salary is 5000SGD but there is only 1SGD in the corporate account.

    Please advise.


    • Paul Hype Page May 23, 2016 at 9:01 am - Reply

      Dear Clarence,

      It is necessary to pay your self the salary that you will declare for Employment Pass and it will reflect in your payslip as well as income tax to Singapore.

      Although Singapore allows one to incorporate a private limited company with just $1 as start up capital, we usually advise our client to make it realistic as what you have mention. MOM may also request to see your company corporate bank account to ensure that the company is sincere in operating the business in Singapore and will have sufficient fund to pay the staff before they approve the EP.

      To find ou in more details, pls do make an appoint with our consultant, we can assist you to ensure proper setup of your company as well as a smooth work visa application.

      Employment Pass Criteria include a minimum salary of $3,300 and acceptable qualifications with past working experience. And From 1 September 2015, work pass holders will also need to meet a minimum salary criteria of $5,000 to enjoy dependant privileges.

      Don’t forget to check to ensure that your Singapore company is still registered as you need to renew every year.

      Dear Lorena,

      You can either setup a company and apply for EP or find a job confirmation to have your new employer apply the work pass for you.

    I am working in Singapore on Employment pass of one company as employee. I hold a company in Chennai with partner as a director which is private ltd in India.

    Can i register a company here with being part of other company on their EP pass? Or do i need to leave job and then only i can register a company?

      Dear Peduyyar,
      Under the EP rules, you can only work with the employing company. However you may apply as shareholder for the other company as long as you don’t work there.

    I run a couple of internet based businesses, it’s a one man company and I’ve been thinking of moving to Singapore mainly for the quality of life, I’d like to keep my business the way it is, so I would not be recruiting anyone nor would I have an office.

    Do let me know if this option would work well for me.

      Dear Vishal,

      Yes, you will be able to incorporate a company in Singapore with just employee (yourself), however in order to apply for a work pass so that you can stay and work in Singapore, it will be good if you can show why you need to run the internet business in Singapore as it is possible to do it anywhere else. Do make an appointment with our EP specialist so we can go thru in details with you.

    My name is Alexander Johanberg, a 27 year old Swedish native. For the past 7 years, I’ve been living in the U.S. where I studied for my bachelors and MBA. Upon graduation I founded my company, the core business is business consulting, but the plan is to leave the main entity as a holding, this to broaden out my ventures and investments.

    Have a great connection in Singapore, and have been thinking for some time to incorporate my holding entity there. Would love some help and support in how I could do this in the best possible way.

    Best regards,
