Register of Registrable Controllers (RORC)

RORC is a corporate document containing information on the entities’ controllers.

According to ACRA, all companies (including foreign companies) and LLP are required to maintain a RORC in the registered office address, unless they are exempted to do so. Failure to do so may result in a penalty of a fine of up to $5000 upon conviction.

Controllers’ information in the RORC include:

  • for individuals
    • full name;
    • aliases, if any;
    • date of birth
    • residential address;
    • identity card number or passport number;
    • nationality;
    • date of becoming a controller; and
    • date of cessation as a controller, if applicable.
  • for corporate entities
    • company name;
    • unique entity number, if any;

    • identification number or registration number issued to the corporate controller when it was formed or incorporated, if applicable;
