How do I start a business in Singapore as a foreigner?

To start a business in Singapore as a foreigner, you must have a plan.

The amount of capital that you have will influence how quickly you achieve your business goals.

The process of obtaining such financing services is tied to the type of business that an individual wish to start. The following schemes are available for individuals who intend to start a business in Singapore:

    • Sector Specific Accelerator

    You need to identify which of the above schemes will be suitable for your business and the ones that you qualify in case you need additional funding for your business.

  3. Identifying the type of business you want to start in Singapore

Obtaining Necessary Licensing and Permits

After the incorporation process, you will have to obtain all the necessary licenses and permits for you to operate your business. The type of your business and the industry under which it lies will significantly dictate the kind of business permits and licenses you require. Singapore’s government requires all the businesses within the jurisdiction to have permits and to license to allow them to operate their businesses. Licensing ensures compliance and certainty that it is operating in accordance with the Singapore law and requirements.

Therefore, obtaining licensing should be part of your plans when starting a business in Singapore.

Recruiting of Employees

The process of recruiting employees for your business can be a nightmare. However, that is not usually the case in Singapore since there is a pool of qualified and professional employees. You can hire either local or foreign employees in Singapore. Besides, there are employment agencies in Singapore that can assist you with the hiring process.

If you want to hire your employees from abroad, you must ensure that the valid work permits, and passports enable them to work in the country. Still, you have nothing to worry about if you had the plans to hire employees from abroad. PHP will help you process the necessary work permit and Visas for your prospective employees to enable them to come to Singapore. Starting a business in Singapore might not be complete or successful without hiring qualified employees and workers.

Compliance and Tax remittance

Singapore has Double Taxation Agreements (DTAs) with over 73 countries globally. Besides, the country has a unilateral tax system with the countries that it has not signed the DTAs with. Thus, the tax system in Singapore is lenient and simple. Nonetheless, you must ensure that you file all your relevant tax requirements correctly. It might be challenging for start-ups who are not familiar with all the tax requirements in Singapore. However, you must realize that the process of filing your taxes can be simpler if you hire our professionals who can help you file to avoid penalties and fines.


Generally, the process of starting a business in Singapore is fast and efficient if you work with qualified and professional personnel. Therefore, you need to consult with us so that you can start your business in Singapore with ease.

    I would like to set up a business in Singapore. I have a few questions regarding registering business in Singapore for a foreigner.
    1. Do you have to have a street address to register a business? For example: Resident address or PO Box address (local).
    2. Do you have to have a bank account in Singapore? What is the minimum required for deposit to open a business account?
    3. Once you have the business registration, do you have to apply working visa in Singapore?
    4. Does having connections such as family help in the business application?
    I was once Singaporean but because of marriage and benefits for school in US I decided to give up my citizenship since Singapore does not allow dual citizenship. Now graduated with bachelor and running a business I want to see what Singapore could offer me. .
    Thank you in advance for the information.

      Dear Nora,

      Yes, you will need a registered address for a Singapore company (no PO Boxes, though) and you will need to have a company bank account in Singapore with the required capital. If you plan to relocate to Singapore to run your business, you will need a working visa. We’d recommend our all-in-one Incorporation with Employment Pass package.

    I have a Singapore Personal Employment Pass (expiring end of April 2018). I just opened a PLLC (professional limited liability company) in US. I would like to open a company in Singapore. Should this be a ‘branch office’ of US firm or a new company (not sure which – LLC or Sole) with the same name? My company is primarily consulting work for the data center infrastructure business (design/build).

      Dear Sonny

      1) The best business entity structure is private limited company as there is limited personal legal obligation and ownership can be divide by shares
      2) There is no license needed for software consulting or engineering
      3) When you set up a Singapore company with us , we can provide registered address for your company at $240 per year
      4) We will suggest you take our incorporation with employment pass visa package at $3,155 where the visa allows you stay and work in Singapore for 2 years.

    I will be in business with a friend (now US citizen, ex-malaysian). She doesn’t hv college degree. Basically she will run the business. We are aiming at selling Vietnamese sandwich which she is really good at.
    Can she be part of the owner as well as worker?
    I am a PR here.

      Dear Dorothy

      With you as the local resident director , both of you can start a company.
      As for her working visa, she can get S pass or employment pass.
      Do note that a S pass holder can be director or shareholder of the company.
      Therefore ,you can left with only employment pass.

      For increase in shares capital, it would be better for you to consult professional firm to do it for you as proper paperwork will need to be done before the lodgement with ACRA.
