Rikvin Elaborates On Singapore Representative Office Setup Requirements

The prolific tourism in Singapore experienced at its peak in 2010 inevitably supported broad-based growth across the sectors such as shopping centers, hotel and lodging accommodations, Food and Beverages, medical, and sightseeing.

Doing business in Singapore is easy with its straightforward procedure and friendly policy on taxation and ownership. Businessmen don’t have to rush things in Singapore. They can prefer to conduct surveys, campaigns, and market tests before they plunge into the local market.

“What they need is a representative office,” chimes Rikvin, a Singapore-based professional business registration provider specializing in assisting foreign companies, investors, and employees.

“A representative is non-profit yielding office that any businessman can employ to launch business opportunities assessment. It is also an efficient vehicle to promote its brand and to work with the company’s agents and or distributors,” Rikvin adds.

Because it is non-profit yielding, all its activities are limited to liaising, and acting as the administrative extension of a foreign company.

Rikvin continues: “It cannot negotiate on any trading instruments or leasing warehouses. But it is allowed to lease office space. It cannot open Letter of Credit and issue invoices and receipts.”

In registering a representative, it must bear the name of its parent company. It also does not have obligations such as auditing and filing of annual tax returns and any other filing tasks.

“However, it can register for Central Registration Number from Singapore Customs to import and export product samples,” beams Rikvin.

Heading the representative is a Chief Representative who may either be a local or a foreigner by obtaining an Singapore work visa. Rikvin assists any representative offices in processing work visas for any foreign staff employed by a representative.

“There must also be shareholders from parent company owning 100% of the representative office, and a valid local address,” cites Rikvin’s business consultant.

The registration of a representative is valid only for one year, and renewable in the subsequent year up to three years.

“After the three years, the office should develop into a branch or a subsidiary or any other business structure,” utters Rikvin.
