Between 1983 and 2004, all companies and businesses in Singapore were overseen by the Registry of Companies and Businesses (RCB). The RCB was created in 1983 after a merger of the Registry of Companies and Registry of Businesses. However, despite the merger, the Registry of Companies and Registry of Businesses would each function as a separate department within the RCB. The RCB provided a great many services to companies in Singapore which required such services. Of course, as was implied by the full name of the RCB, the primary services provided by the RCB were those which were directly related to the registration and incorporation of all companies which were established in the country.
On that note, we should take a moment to mention that at Paul Hype Page & Co, the primary services we provide to clients are those related to the registration and incorporation of a company in Singapore. When we work with you in order for your company to be properly incorporated, you should know that you will receive services at a level which will be in line with all of your incorporation needs. We will also contact any necessary authorities or agencies in order to expedite the process if such happens to be required at any point during the process of incorporation.
Returning to the topic of the RCB, other services which were provided by the RCB included a directory service which was provided through certain terminals in the information hall of the RCB. This service was to be used to verify if a specific business had officially been registered. A registered business would have its name and registration number displayed on the terminal screen. A business profile and extract could also be obtained through services provided by the RCB. It was also possible to obtain other information about any registered business in Singapore through the RCB. Such information included strategic business information, statistical information, and the registry of company documents. Thus, during the 21 years for which it was in operation, the RCB played an important role in catering to the needs of all businesses and business owners all over Singapore.
