ksl, I'm not sure what you are imbibing tonight, and I'm not sure why you are taking issue with me? I never said anything about registering a company (the government did) and my quote is from the same site that you quoted from. I believe if you will reread things you will find that you need to file an EntrePass to register and business if you are a foreigner "who is not on a long term pass" which means, PR, DP or LTSVP. You have got it backwards when you say:
You can twist it as much as you like, You are telling people that are on Employment Pass, that they cannot register a damn business for god sake man, you only need the entrepass if you are joining the business. You do not need it to register a business.
The bold is patently wrong. You have it reversed and you are the one who is twisting things. Go back and read the site FAQ's again. You do need it if you are a foreigner NOT ON A LONG TERM PASS. By Defnintion a long term pass, as defined by the government is a Dependent's Pass (DP), Permanent Residence (PR) OR a Long Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP).
If you are on an EP (meaning Employment Pass), that is not considered a long term pass (by the Government) so therefore, as quoted, you need to file for an EntrePass in order to register a company. Please read the following once again.....
Does a foreigner who wants to register a business or a company with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) need to have an EntrePass?
An EntrePass is necessary for a foreigner seeking to register a business or company.
And now, I got to shut it down for the evening. nite all.
