Getting started with Company Incorporation Services in Singapore

In a fast-moving world, Singapore is one of the easiest places for company incorporation. For entrepreneurs or businessowners looking to set up business in Singapore must make several decisions to give their businesses a competitive edge in the flooded market. It is crucial to understand that in Singapore, for a proper company formation, it needs to be registered with ACRA – registering a business is part of the company incorporation process.

From choosing a company name to appointing a director or nominee director, the process of registering, incorporating, and eventually forming a company that is recognised as a legal identity requires a thorough fulfilment of various regulatory requirements. To expedite your Singapore company incorporation, company formation services by incorporation specialists are therefore necessary for fast business set ups in Singapore. For company formation that complies with the rules and regulations of various authorities, Margin Wheeler offers the right services to all your company incorporation needs.

Benefits of Incorporating A Company

In Singapore, company incorporation aids in protecting a business owner's assets from legal and financial risks. Other values that are in line with Singapore can benefit from an incorporated company include:

  • Startup Tax Exemptions (75%) on the first $100,000 and (50%) on the next $100,000 net profit amounting to $125,000 Tax Exempted for the first 3 years. 
  • Partial Tax Exemptions (75%) on first $10,000 and (50%) on next $190,000 of net profit amounting to $102,500 Tax Exempted (if startup tax exemption is not applicable) 


  • Limited Liability (Limited to pay up compensations only up to your indicated paid-up capital)
  • Personal Assets of Directors or Shareholders will not be implicated.
    ** Subject to the "system of lifting the corporate veil", Eg: Officer or Shareholders whom committed fraud.

Frequently Asked Questions About Setting Up A Business In Singapore

All businesses in Singapore must be registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) – with a few exceptions. Before doing so, you should first consider the business structure which would best serve your company’s objectives, whether it would be a sole proprietorship or incorporation to form a limited liability entity. The documents and information required for registration differs depending on your business formation. Once you have gathered the required information, you can then make an online application via the BizFile+ website.

Incorporating a company is different from forming a sole proprietorship or partnership. It is a legal entity, separate and distinct from its shareholders and directors. In Singapore, ACRA charges a fee of $15 for a business name application and $300 for company registration, which comes to $315 in total administrative fees. While this may be slightly more costly than other business structures, registering as a company offers several benefits, such as tax exemption for start-ups. Despite the fast and affordable process, company incorporation services may be more complicated due to compliance requirements. You may wish to engage in the company formation services offered by trusted professional firms like Margin Wheeler.

 With many legal and accounting terms, compliance requirements, and documents to prepare, incorporating a company in Singapore can be a daunting process for many business owners. By outsourcing this to a professional service provider, you can free up precious time for you to focus on building your business.

Apart from this, you can also enjoy fringe benefits such as receiving incorporation and company secretary advice – which adds value to your business. At Margin Wheeler, you will find a range of affordable service packages to help you with your company formation.
