FAQs

Before the registration can proceed, there are a few basic requirements to be met:

If you do not have a local director, you can choose to engage a nominee director service when you open your company with us. A nominee director functions as the director of a company for meeting the legal requirement to own a local director. The nominee director acts passively and his/her position in the company is limited.
No. In Singapore, the requirements for the incorporation of a private limited (pte. ltd.) company are the same for both locals and foreigners. As long as all the basic requirements for incorporation are met, the company will be able to open in Singapore smoothly.

For foreign directors and/or shareholders who are unable to be in Singapore to sign the necessary company registration documents, you can sign them in your home country. It is not necessary to be present in Singapore to complete the company registration.

The registration documents need to be signed physically and originally by the director and/or shareholder. In Singapore, e-signatures are still not accepted. Click here to read more about electronic signatures in Singapore.

Certain documents will need to be notarized by a notary public in your home country as well. Click here to read more about document notarization.

In order to protect all the members of the company, it is the duty of the company secretary to ensure that all the documents are in order and properly kept inside the company’s minute book. At least one original signed copy of the company documents should always be kept inside the company minute book in order to ensure that all company documents remain well-maintained, recognized and legally binding to avoid any possible disputes.

At the same time, it is also the corporate secretary’s role to provide clear and proper advice to the members of the company on their queries related to their company structure and filings.

As many of our clients know, at Lionsworld, we do not accept electronic signatures or digital signatures.

The reason is simple: Currently, the only form of digital signature legally recognized in Singapore is your SingPass. Unfortunately, as SingPass is used exclusively for government operations, private companies are currently unable to utilize SingPass for their own functions.

As such, there is no legally recognized means of digital/electronic signature in Singapore at the moment.

In order to ensure that a document is to be recognized and binding via a signature, one must still provide an original, hard copy signature of the document. Certain documents, such as incorporation documents, change in directorship and shareholding of a company, must even be notarized and/or properly witnessed in order to ensure that the signature is original and to ensure that the person signing the document meets the legal requirements of identity.

If there is any dispute raised, electronically signed documents will not be recognized under Singapore’s law.

In Singapore, it is necessary to appoint a local resident director in order to proceed with the registration. Foreigners who wish to register in Singapore will need to appoint a Singaporean or Permanent Resident in order to proceed with the registration. This holds true for all company structures, including private limited companies and sole proprietors. If you do not have a local director, you can choose to engage a nominee director service when you incorporate with us.
