Singapore Company Incorporation + EP Application

As a foreign entrepreneur, no doubt you’re excited about launching your new Singapore venture. But, while you’re used to working quickly and decisively on your home turf, you understand that in a new business arena it’s often better to pass the ball to those on familiar ground.

Value Package for Foreign Entrepreneurs

Let our capable team help you reach your goals by taking care of your new company set-up and migration to Singapore. Our Value Package has been specially designed with your needs in mind, including the provision of a local director until you have secured your Employment Pass (EP).

Sounds good?

To check your eligibility for the Value Package, click here, to ensure that you first meet the assessment criteria for an EP, and click here for qualifying criteria to act as a director in a Singapore company. Furthermore, if you plan to bring your immediate loved ones along on your tropical adventure, check to see if you/they qualify for a dependant pass visa.

In case it’s not clear to you by now - we’re not the sort of folk to take your money and run if we can’t offer you a complete solution.

All good? Let’s carry on…

Getting the ball rolling

Step 1. Send a request here for one of our company formation and employment agency consultants to speak with you.

Step 2. Receive an email from us, or a download link from one of our partners, containing Company Incorporation Data Collection & KYC forms for you to fill out.

A bit of leg work...

Step 3. Send us your completed forms, together with scanned copies/photographs of the following documents:

  • Copy of your passport’s photo page;
  • Copy of a document that provides proof of your residential address (eg. home utility bill, driver’s licence), that is no older than 3 months from the current date;
  • A personal reference letter from a banking institution or notary public (a sample will be provided to you) for at least one shareholder and one director;
  • Copy of the Managing Director’s (and EP applicant’s, if different person) resume/CV.

NB:

  • Documents in a foreign language must be submitted together with an English translation certified by an official translation service provider;
  • Certified true copies of all official ID documents must be provided, with the original documents made available to us, later, for sighting;
  • Additional documents related to the directors, shareholders, EP applicant, and the activities of the new Company may be required on a case to case basis.

Cheques(!) & Measures

Step 4. On receipt of all the completed forms and documents listed above, our compliance team will carry out a compliance review. Our Employment Agency agents will also conduct a preliminary assessment of the EP applicant’s eligibility for EP.

NB:

  • Whilst we endeavor to always meet the needs of our clients, the provision of our resident local director is dependent on a satisfactory compliance report.
  • Our assessment of an applicant’s eligibility for EP is indicative only, based on the Ministry of Manpower’s Self-Assessment Tool (SAT). We do not guarantee success, even where the SAT result is favourable, as the final decision is at the discretion of the MOM officer assigned to your case.

Step 5. Following a satisfactory compliance report and EP eligibility check, we will send you our tax invoice for payment.

Step 6. Upon the settlement of our invoice and your confirmed job order, we will prepare and email to you the relevant Company incorporation documents for signing, scanning and return to us. With your go-ahead, we will also proceed to reserve your chosen company name with ACRA.

Success!

Step 7. Immediately (i.e. within the same day) after receiving your complete, signed, set of Singapore company incorporation documents, we will register your new company with ACRA.

Step 8. Time to start work on your EP application! Based on our years of experience in securing work passes for new companies (with no track record in Singapore), we will work with you to put together a persuasive EP application. Within 3 months of your setting up your Company, you should be well on your way to running on your own. Of course, if you’d like to engage us for corporate secretarial and accounting services, you might be interested in our compliance services.
