registering a business

Postby ukdesigner » Mon, 07 May 2007 7:04 pm

I hope someone can help me on this one as I seem to be going round in circles.

I have just had my entrepass approved and now need to register my business (sole proprietor).
Now I have checked ACRA and bizfile and it seems contradictory.

One says that you must register on bizfile and the other says register on ACRA. Now I'm not exactly stupid and I've even emailed the 'bureau' who are recommended on bizfile to see if they can sort out the registration for me. No help whatsoever.

So.... please... anyone out there been there done it on here.

By the way, just one small point. I am not in Singapore just yet as I am transferring my business from the Uk to Singapore so need to have both running at the same time for a short period and don't wanna just come over and have to wait for it to be approved.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Use Bzefile to file in for the approval and your acra will be issued to you.Do it on line and print out the aprroval and collect the orginal once they reply.

Ok, point of caution. I was told its easy to register but if for whatever reasons you want to terminate your current company and register a new one, it gets harder.

can someone confirm if this's true?

Not true. As long as you are paying the registration fee, little effect from your previous business that you shut down.
