Foreign entrepreneurs can register a sole proprietorship, partnership, or limited liability partnership in Singapore.
“The ownership of a sole proprietorship business is bestowed upon a single individual,” Rikvin commences its elaboration on the basic features of business structures in Singapore, “who exercises absolute authority over its business in matters relating to finances, management, and other activities.”
A partnership requires a minimum of 2 individuals and a maximum of 20 who share ownership of the business. The partners may either be a natural living persons or another business entity.
“Both the Singapore sole proprietorship and partner businesses are not recognized as a legal entity. Therefore, assets and properties acquired through the profits of the business cannot name the business as the owner.”
Neither of them can file lawsuits nor be filed against. The tax is levied once on a personal level of the business owners. Rikvin continues its elaboration saying, “foreign business entities have a local manager assigned in Singapore.”
A local manager is either a permanent resident or a citizen of Singapore. Possession of an Entrepreneur Pass may also qualify foreigners to take that position.
On the other hand, a limited liability partnership is clothed with a legal personality, hence, it can acquire assets and engage in lawsuits in its business name.
“It is constituted by at least 2 partners who could either be a natural living person or another corporate or business entity,” Rikvin resumes elaborating, “and the liability of each partner is limited to their investment on the company.”
This means that partners are protected personally from any accountability that would have arisen from negligence and unwise decisions. The LLP too requires the appointment of a local manager unless foreign entrepreneurs relocate to Singapore.
Since the LLP is treated as a resident company, it is awarded with tax exemptions on its 1st 3 years of assessment.
All 3 business structures are exempted from auditing requirements, filing of financial statements with ACRA, filing of annual tax returns, and compliance with financial reporting standards.
Foreign entrepreneurs are not eligible to register their business by themselves. Based on the laws of Singapore, they ought to hire a company to spearhead the registration of a company and the processing of labor passes.
Rikvin specializes in incorporation of a foreign company and registration of a business in Singapore. It also handles application for labor passes.
