How to Setup Company in Singapore? (Introduction)

The demand for the services of a new set up a company in Singapore continues to accelerate.

Its pro-business government policies, attractive tax rates, state-of-the-art infrastructure, great accessibility, and political stability are among the prime reasons to incorporate and run a company in the nation. A rapidly increasing number of business owners and investors – local or foreign – who take part in the economy of Singapore has lead Singapore to be the world’s best place for doing business according to the World Bank. Singapore has a strong trade ecosystem supported by 76 Double Taxation Agreements (DTAs) and 20 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). The DTAs and FTAs have enlarged the scope of trade of Singapore-based businesses, exporters, and investors through the presence of preferential access to certain sectors, intellectual property protection, and concessions. Only here, in Singapore, business owners, exporters, and investors can benefit from an extensive range of business policies, tax concessions, and grants. So, doing company incorporation in Singapore is a really rational business decision. We provide guides on how to start a business in Singapore.
