  • Frequently asked questions

    What is an exempt Pte Ltd?

    An Exempt Private Company (EPC) is a legal Pte Ltd company registered in Singapore. It is the most common type of company in Singapore. This is a legal body corporate, so it is a separate legal entity and can enter into its own contracts and manage its own legal proceedings. The name of the EPC usually ends with "Pte Ltd". It cannot have more than 20 shareholders (members) and no shareholder should be a body corporate. An EPC has its own share capital. A shareholder of an EPC owns share capital and is only liable up to their investment in the shares of the company. Therefore, if the company is driven to liquidation, their personal assets cannot be seized to pay off the company’s debts apart from the amount they have invested in the company. EPCs can extend loans to their directors. When it comes to financial loans, EPCs have more freedom and autonomy in comparison to non-EPCs. In particular, they can extend loans to their directors. This is unlike non-EPCs which are generally prohibited from extending loans to their directors unless certain requirements are met, such as obtaining prior approval for the loan in a general meeting.

    Why should I incorporate a Private Limited Company in Singapore?

    Along with being one of the world’s top financial centres with wide availability of funding and assistance schemes for start-ups or established companies, the city-state of Singapore is also known for its ease of doing business and pro-business regulatory environment, along with a very attractive corporate tax framework.

     

    Singapore also has comprehensive trade agreements with over 100 regions of the world, excellent connectivity, strategic geographical location, proximity to world’s largest emerging markets including India and China, and robust IP protection.

    What is the major advantage of incorporating a private limited company in Singapore?

    Apart from the huge tax advantage, and benefits of over 100 comprehensive trade agreements, one of the major advantages of incorporating a private limited company is that it is a separate legal entity and is limited by shares. As a result, shareholders of a Singapore company are not liable for its debts and losses beyond their amount of share capital.

    What are the different types of business structures in Singapore?

    There are five different structures to choose from – Sole-Proprietorship, Partnership, Limited Partnership, and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), and the most common and flexible business entity – the Private Limited Company (applicable for non-Singaporeans and permanent residents). Do note that all companies in Singapore must be registered and abide by the country’s Companies Act.

    What are the key requirements to incorporate a company in Singapore?

    • at least one shareholder which may be an individual or a corporate entity

    • initial paid-up share capital of at least S$1, or equivalent in any currency
