These include among others, “entering into contracts, involving in lawsuits, incurring profits or losses and liabilities, and acquiring assets and properties,” says Rikvin.
In Singapore, a company is registered as a private limited.
On the other hand, a business entity does not maintain legal status as it is regarded as one with its owner.
“The profits constitute a personal income of the business owner while the assets and properties name the business proprietor as the owner,” adds Rikvin, citing the business entities to be a sole proprietorship, partnership, and limited liability partnership. Both in sole proprietorship and partnership, the liability of owners are unlimited including their personal properties and liquid assets.
A private limited company protects its shareholders from financial accountability, while a limited liability partnership, though regarded as a business entity, is an exemption for it is actually given a legal status, and as such, the liability of one partner does not encompass another.
According to Rikvin, the structure of a private limited company is designed to “restrict shareholders from selling their shares to public over a stock exchange. When necessary, the sale of share must first be offered to fellow shareholders or members.”
Meanwhile, a limited liability partnership allows sound and hassle-free transfer or ownership through sale of share.
Continual compliance with requirements such as auditing, filing of annual return, filing of financial statements with ACRA, and preparing an Annual Declaration of Solvency are among the consistent responsibilities of a private limited company.
Singapore formulated an attractive taxation policy among tax residents. Falling into such category, “the private limited company and limited liability partnership are entitled to exemption from corporate tax on their first S$100,000 accumulated revenues for three consecutive years following their incorporation or registration,” Hun continues, adding that on the next S$200,000, a separate 50% discount on their corporate tax is implemented.
Depending on the nature of the business, certain enterprises are granted with tax incentives and may even avail the benefits of Avoidance of Double Taxation Treaty for foreign investors whose country of origin is a signatory to such treaty.
