Nominee Director Service

Nominee Director Service

What is the Role and Scope of the Nominee Resident Director?

The Companies Act mandated that every company established in the city-state designate a minimum of one director who is typically a citizen of Singapore. IMC may assist you in meeting this need by choosing one of our team members to serve as the nominee resident director for your firm, on a temporary or yearly basis. The Companies Act and the legal systems in Singapore impose the same duties and obligations on a Nominee Director as they do on a regular director.

The board of directors, who are in charge of the organization and answerable to the shareholders, are granted the majority of the company’s authority. Directors are accountable for the regulatory records and files, accounting documents and yearly accounts, shareholder and board conferences, and crucially, all directors have a fiduciary responsibility to the organization. A Nominee Director may, at any time, ask for read-only access to the client’s corporate banking account, but only in order to carry out their fiduciary obligations as well as their routine accounting and tax reporting responsibilities.
