Sole Proprietorship Business Registration


The basic kind of company structure is a sole proprietorship, which has just one owner who has ultimate authority over all of the company’s assets and obligations.

You can establish a proprietorship if you’re a Singapore Citizen, Singapore Permanent Resident or an eligible FIN holder (subject to approval from MOM/ICA). Foreign persons and businesses are also permitted to register as sole proprietorships, but they must appoint at least one locally resident authorised representative (e.g. Singapore citizens, Permanent residents or holders of EntrePass/ Employment Pass).  The foreign owner(s) must also engage a registered filing agent (e.g. a law firm, accounting firm, or corporate secretarial form) to submit the application via BizFile

  5. You must annually update your CPF account and renew your business registration
