For some reasons, a Singapore Representative office provides a few advantages to businessmen despite its non-profit nature. Being a non-trading vehicle, a representative bridges the relationship between the foreign parent company and its local distributors and agents.

“It provides support to local agents because the activities of a representative are limited to establishing the brand of product or service as the niche of the parent company,” chimes a business analyst of Rikvin.

Rikvin provides complete business solutions to businessmen and companies. It renders its services to assist foreign companies in establishing a presence in Singapore by registering a corporation or an office such as a representative.

“Although a representative office has an economical role to portray, it does not generate revenues. In other words, it is simply an administrative extension of and financially supported by its head office,” adds Rikvin.

The principal objective of a representative is to support the activities of its headquarters or subsidiaries.

Says Rikvin: “Among the activities permitted are conducting market research and business feasibility. It may want to determine the profitability of certain product or service by conducting sampling.”

For sampling purposes, the representative can apply for a Central Registration Number from Singapore Customs to allow it to import and export product samples. Rikvin can help the office in securing for the number.

However, Rikvin warns against misuse of the custom number as it is strictly and exclusively for sampling purposes.

Rikvin continues: “A Singapore representative office is prohibited from participating in commercial and profit-yielding activities. It cannot rent or lend a warehouse, hold and issue Letter of Credit, and issue invoices and receipts.”

Each year, it must renew its registration for a maximum of three years, after which, it must progress either a subsidiary or branch office.

“Three years are enough for a representative office to test the market potential of Singapore, learn the mechanics and techniques of the market games, and understood the business policies.”

Manning the representative office are staff either local or foreign and headed by the chief representative. For foreign staff including the chief representative, an Employment pass shall be obtained after the representative office has been registered.

Rikvin resumes elaboration: “The representative office shall bear the same name as its head office and must be 100% owned by the parent company, which shall act as the sole shareholder, and must register a local valid address.”

As a business solutions provider, Rikvin also offers local valid address for foreign companies.
