Asiabiz Services Assists in Setting Up A Representative Office And Company Registration After 3 years 

by Oneil Valencia Tuesday, February 01, 2011
A representative office is a conservative approach to establishing a business presence in a territory without the intention of carrying out a business. A representative office is not clothed with a legal personality because it is merely an administrative arrangement, sort of a liaison office designed for non-commercial activities.

In a brief conversation with Asiabiz Services, the company describes a representative office or RO not as a business entity because its purpose is not conducive to generating funds. Instead, it is a vehicle employed to conduct market research.

“A RO is limited in its activity which includes initiating feasibility studies, supervising the activities of its main headquarters’ local distributors and agents, acting as liaison office in a negotiation deals, and providing customer support.”

The intent in all of RO’s activities is to determine the business potential of the area. In Singapore, a representative is manned by a few staff headed by the chief representative, both can be locals or foreign nationals by securing an Entrepreneur or Employment pass.

A representative must renew its existence each year after its first registration. However, Asiabiz Services utters that its existence is limited.

“After three years of running in Singapore, a representative ought to progress either into a branch office or a subsidiary.”

Asiabiz does not only help in setting up a representative office in Singapore as only those who hold a Singapore Personal Access card are allowed to make transactions with BizFile, an online portal created by ACRA to cater to the business needs such as registration. As a solution creator, Asiabiz can help setup a Singapore representative office as it registers into a full-blown corporation.

Foreign staff including the chief representative may still be part of the company’s staff to register in Singapore. However, their labor passes must be revoked and re-applied anew as sponsored by the new company.

“A branch office is required to have two agents to support the administration of a branch, which is deemed as a legal extension of a foreign mother company, and therefore, does not have its own juridical personality,” utters the company.

On the other hand, should the representative evolve into a subsidiary, there must be a resident director appointed, at least a shareholder, and a company secretary.

Says Asiabiz Services of a resident director: “Besides being of legal age and capacity, a resident director must either be a citizen or a permanent resident, and not a bankrupt or guilty of any malpractice. In case a foreign national should occupy the resident director’s position, an Employment pass or Entrepreneur pass is necessary.”
