Registered Office Services in Singapore
To incorporate a business in Singapore, you need to have a registered office address. Jaanik enables you to comply with this statutory requirement. We offer you a registered office address or a virtual address that you can use to register your business. You will then have to enter this registered address in your application form for company incorporation and submit it to ACRA. The registered address can be used in your company’s official documents, letterheads, banks, customers and other documentation.
Criteria for Registered Office Address
As per ACRA, you will be required to fulfill the following criteria for a registered office address.
|Physical Office||You should have a physical office address located in Singapore and not a P.O. Box|
|Accessibility||Your office should be accessible to all stakeholders and customers at least for 5 business hours on a working day|
|Correspondence||With the physical address in place, the regulatory authorities and banks can correspond and communicate with your company on important aspects like government policy changes and annual filing|
|Inspection||Regulating agencies may pay a visit to your office to inspect your documents and company folders|
HDB Home Office
Some entrepreneurs may seek to use their home address as their registered office address. You may do this under the Home Office Scheme with URA or HDB. However, you may need to consider certain aspects before deciding on the home office as a registered address:
Restrictions on Certain Business Activities: Certain businesses such as manufacturing, courier services, beauty services and marketing are not permitted to have a home office. Therefore, you will have to carry out adequate research before paying administrative fees.
Minimum Working Hours: As businesses need to keep their offices open for at least 5 hours on a working day, you need to take that into account before setting up a home office.
Compromise on Privacy: If you use your home address, you will have to compromise on your privacy as your address will be easily accessible to the public.
Given the restrictions involved in using your home as an office, you may decide to go for a virtual office while conducting your business operations from home. A virtual office offers a perfect blend of corporate professionalism with the comforts of a home office. Read on to learn more.
