Our experts discuss the business structures available to the owners. However, the trend is to register a private limited company. It has many advantages over registering a Sole Proprietorship or a Limited Liability Partnership.
There are many reasons for opting for the Singapore company registration in the form of a private limited company (Pte Ltd). It has a separate identity from its owners. It has the rights of a natural born person. It can sue and be sued in the court of law. Most importantly, it limits the owners’ (shareholders’) liability to their share amounts.

After successfully registering a new company, ACRA sends an incorporation email containing all its details, including, Unique Entity Number. The email is acceptable in Singapore as the Certificate of Incorporation. We can get its hard copy after paying the required fee.
