Normally, you can find out if the name is available or not within seconds. Unless, there is system maintenance at ACRA’s end and this would delay the name check process. Do also note that certain activities are subjected to further check and if your new company intends to be in the medical, legal, financial, futures, commodities, architecture or engineering industry, you may wish to speak with HeySara first before you go on to reserve the name.

Can I use home address to be the company address?

If your address is a private address, then yes you can. But having a residential address as a registered address may be prohibitive as you may find your supplier or creditors coming to your home. Statutory letters are also sent to your registered address. So it would be better if you can consider having an office address as your registered address. HeySara provides not only a registered address, but we also offer shared office or hot desking at a monthly fee. Enquire with us.

How will I know when my Singapore company has been incorporated?

If you incorporate the company on your own, ACRA will send an email to the registered director’s email address. The UEN would be assigned at the same time.

What do I need to do after successfully registering my Singapore company?

You may consider appointing your accountant or payroll personnel to take care of your business. At HeySara, we have a team of professional who can assist you with these functions.

What is a UEN and can I choose the company’s UEN?

UEN is in short for Unique Identification Number. This UEN is used for all statutory transactions with the Singapore Governmental bodies. You can also choose your own UEN at a fee to be payable to ACRA. The nicer the number the more expensive it will be.

Can I nominate someone else as the director or shareholder of the company if I don’t want to be listed in public records?

Yes, you can appoint a nominee director or shareholder subject to the terms and conditions to be agreed between you and the nominees. However, we generally don’t encourage such arrangement as you may have difficulties to open banking account later on. Even with such private arrangement, the nominee director will have to make a disclosure to the Company by naming his appointor and whereas for the nominee shareholder, he or she will have to make a disclosure to the Company on who his/her registrable controller is. This information will be filed with ACRA confidentially.

What is the minimum age requirement for directors and shareholders of a Singapore company?

To act as a director, the minimum age is 18 years old. As for a shareholder, he or she cannot be a minor. Hence, the minimum age is 21 years old.

What is the difference between an individual shareholder and a corporate shareholder?

Based on Companies Act, Cap. 50, an individual or corporation as recognised as a natural person. In short, there is no difference between having a individual or corporate shareholder. This really depends on the efficiency of your set up.

What documents are required to register a Singapore company?

As mentioned earlier, the minimum documents required are proof of address and identification papers for our KYC review. As HeySara is a regulated filing agent, hence it is bound under law to conduct a KYC on all clients.

How do I find out if the name of my company is available?

You can go to www.acra.gov.sg to check the availability of your desired name. Or alternatively, HeySara can help you to check on the availability. Once the name is available, you can pay a S$15 to reserve the proposed name for 120 days. During this period, you can incorporate your company anytime.

What information is publicly available about a Singapore company?

You can buy a business profile and in the same documents, you can see basic:

  • Name and UEN
  • Paid up and issued capital
  • Names of Auditors, Directors and Shareholders
  • Last filed annual return and financial year end
  • Charges, if any in the company’s name
  • Shareholdings and types of shareholdings, if any

If a company had filed any electronic documents, you can also extract them via ACRA at a extraction fee depending on the number of documents extracted elec

I have read the term UBO at a few places, what does it mean?

Financial Action Task Force (FATF) defines beneficial owner as “the natural person(s) who ultimately owns or controls a customer and/or the natural person on whose behalf a transaction is being conducted. It also includes those persons who exercise ultimate effective control over a legal person or arrangement.” In short, any person who can exercise any form of ultimate control (direct or indirect) can be deemed to be a UBO.
