As a foreigner, here’s what you need to start a business in Singapore
You only need to fly once to open a bank account, everything else can be managed online. You don’t have to hire any local employees, either
The most complicated and expensive feature for a foreigner. Every company can have many directors, but at least one of them must be a resident of Singapore. If you do not have someone who can play the role, you can hire a nominee director.
A nominee formally holds director’s position, without any actual decision-making powers or authority to run the company. He is a company officer on paper, necessary to meet the requirements of the law.
A Singapore resident certified under various regulations. That person is responsible for lodging and filing in time all necessary documents required by law. We provide that service.
A real mailing address in Singapore. It goes on all legal documents. It doesn’t matter where your company really is located — Osome will provide an address.
