Hi, can a DP holder sell home-cooked food online? Does this require LOC as well?

Hi Netty,

Thank you for your query!

In short, yes you may -  if the scale of your business is really small, and you are only selling the home-cooked food to your friends.

However, once the business grows and is established, it is best if you incorporate the Company. In this way, you have more creditability for your business and your personal assets are protected if the business doesn’t go well. You will need to apply for an EP to continue running the business.

Please feel free to contact one of our incorporation specialists should you need help in incorporating a company as a DP holder. We are happy to help. 😊

Best regards,

Hi Tahamina, it depends on the scale of your business. As a DP holder, you don’t need a LOC to sell home-cooked food online if the scale of your business is really small, and you are only selling the home-cooked food to your friends. You must take note that you are not allowed to hire any workers if you want to run a home-based small-scale business.

If you are planning to grow your online business, we would recommend you to get a LOC and incorporate a company to properly run your business. In this way, you have more creditability for your business and your personal assets are protected if the business doesn’t go well.
