I had the absolute pleasure of working with ContactOne Incorporation for our business registration in Singapore, and the experience has been nothing short of exceptional. Our main point of contact, Tricia, was the epitome of professionalism. Not only was she quick to respond to our many queries, but her comprehensive knowledge and clear communication made the experience feel almost effortless. Tricia's unwavering dedication to customer service is evident in the quality and timeliness of her responses, setting the bar high for the industry standard. The team at ContactOne demonstrated a deep understanding of Singapore's corporate regulations and the registration process, which was instrumental in accelerating the typically time-consuming process. They swiftly handled every aspect of the registration, allowing us to focus on the bigger picture - planning and running our business.

The Goodhousecleaners Pte Ltd, recently incorporated, was looking for a corporate secretary. We stumbled upon ContactOne and did a random call. It was professionally picked up by a particular, Tricia Lam. Her patience in explaining to us the procedures with no frills, no hidden cost/agenda, caught our attention. To be frank, right from the very first contact, we had already decided to move with ContactOne. Now that our incorporation is complete, we are thankful for Tricia and ContactOne for making the experience a easy-peasy one. We look forward to working with Tricia and ContactOne when the need arises....... Cheers!!from the team at The Goodhousecleaners _ Daniel Ong, Victor Ong & Susan Wei

Sole Proprietorship and Partnerships in Singapore

If you are considering setting up a business without much capital, have very low business risks, and will generate income that will not significantly affect your personal tax exposure, registering for a business vehicle other than a Private Limited Company may be an alternate choice for your business startup. You may register for a sole proprietorship in Singapore, if you are a single owner, or decide on one of the 3 forms of partnerships (General Partnership, Limited Partnership, and Limited Liability Partnership) if you are starting a business that involves 2 or more partners.

The key differences between a company and a sole proprietorship or partnership are:

  • Taxable income for a company is taxed under the corporate tax system whereas taxable income for a sole proprietorship/partnership is taxed under the personal income tax system.
  • Shareholders of a company have limited liabilities (to the extent of their capital contributed into the company), whereas owners of a sole proprietorship/partnership are exposed to business liabilities in varying degree (from unlimited liabilities to limited liabilities).
  • A Private Limited Company and a Limited Liability Partnership can own properties, whereas a sole proprietor, general partnership, or limited partnership cannot own properties under their own name.
  • Profits generated from Sole Proprietorship and Partnerships are subjected to CPF Medisave Contributions. You will be required to make Medisave contributions to your own CPF account if your share of trade income is more than $6,000 for the year.

Before you register

If you are intending to form a sole proprietorship or partnership, you have to ensure that your Medisave contributions relating to any past trade income are fully settled or under an existing payment arrangement with the CPF Board. Likewise, your Medisave account needs to be properly arranged for when you wish to renew the registration for the sole proprietorship or partnerships.

You are eligible to form a sole proprietor or a general partnership if you are

  • a Singapore citizen / Singapore Permanent Resident / Employment Pass Holder or Dependent Pass Holder; and
  • above the age of 18

You are eligible to form a Limited Partnership or Limited Liability Partnership if you are

  • a Singapore citizen / Singapore Permanent Resident / Employment Pass Holder or Dependent Pass Holder; and
  • above the age of 18; or
  • a body corporate (Private Limited Companies, Limited Liability Partnership)

The entire registration process

The entire sole proprietorship registration process takes approximately 15 – 45 minutes if all information and documentation are in place. However, the registration may be delayed for up to two weeks if the name application of your business is referred for further checks by the Authorities.

In our capacity as an agent for the business formation, we will need you, together with your partners (if any), to be present at our office for witnessing purpose.
