Ok I have contacted ACRA and MoM but didn't get a lot more information for now. I have also contacted a consulting company and here is what they told me: Recently the MoM has stopped granting LoCs to SP owners, including those who are already in business and had previously got their LoC for exactly...

Re: Swede + Singaporean PR gf

Thank you. I recently paid a visit to one such company in Singapore, and was far from impressed. Virtually no legal advice whatsoever, just a long list of services I may or may not need and their associated costs. Basically only information already available on their website. It also seems that som...

Re: All PR applications pending

Seems like all the PR applications pending irrespective of nationality, race and profile...No approval/Rejections.. No idea what is going on.. And how do you know that?

Re: Which legal status for what professional activity?

Thank you for your time. I have already contacted ACRA and MoM and will go forward according to what they answer is. What you said matches what I could read on the ACRA site, I don't know why so many of the expats told me it wasn't possible to start a SP without partnering, some of them event told ...

Re: Which legal status for what professional activity?

Thank you, you are confirming what I thought, that a SP with a local partner is the only viable solution. Do you know wher/how I can get answers to my questions about the partner? I can't find anything about that on the ACRA or MoM web sites. I already have someone I'm considering sas a partner but...

Re: Toilet seats almost always wet!

Im not sure if Strong Eagle is taking the piss (sorry, couldnt resist :-" ) but I find that in the mens toilets the reason the toilets are wet is because guys pee in the cubicles without lifting the seat first. Personally I think its because their package is so small they are ashamed to use th...
