Why MOM reject my application of my EP?

Post by Taiwanese » Mon, 15 Aug 2005 2:39 pm

Dear all,

I have a question abouy my EP.
The MOM has rejected my applcation of my EP. always, they did not tell me the reasons.

For it is a new company and a small office(trading company for leather) here,
there are only two employmees here, and it is a family business.

Is it the reason that the authority rejest our request??

I am the boss' relative and quite young, about 24 years, hold university degree in Internetional Trade, two years work experiences.

The boss is my uncle and trusts me very much.

My uncle is a PR in Singapore and his two sons had studied here for 6 more years. He sets up a new firm in Singapore and hopes me to work for him, especially in some financial issues.

In addition,he plans to buy a acondo here and hopes me to take care of his children.
We do not know why the MOM reject our application for EP??
Is there any possibilities for us to apply again?

You can re apply and/or appeal your current rejection.

You do not specify enough information to make any kind of a judgment about why your EP was rejected.

What level did you apply for (P1, P2, S Pass)?
Do you have sufficient income/credentials to meet the pass qualifications?
How long has the company been in business? Is it properly registered, and if so, as what? A sole proprietorship will probably have more difficulty in getting an EP than a private limited. Does it pay taxes?
Is the job description such that it could readily be filled by a local (and it doesn't matter at all if you are going to look after his children)? Did you consider writing the job description in such a way that it would be very hard for the position to be filled locally?
Have you considered filing for an Entrepass which would make you an investor/partner in the business?
