So you are saying you are on LTSVP for a year, your wife is PR ?

How long have you been married ?

Are you on EP or WP prior to LTSVP ?

How long age your wife received PR ?

Any children before this pregnancy ?

Have you been working while on LTSVP ?

Wife is she working now ? Income ?

How is your saving ? Both of you ?

Not sure about ICA, but definitely, IRAS does monitor if there is cash transaction above 50K. One of my friends got a letter from IRAS last year July after he had an over-the-counter cash deposit of 50K in his DBS savings plus account. Guess, the bank has an obligation to report to IRAS if there is a large amount cash transaction as well.
Nobody knows about future!

How were you able to have a sole proprietorship on an LTVP? :o

Or, were you on a Letter of Consent while on the Sole Proprietorship under a DP based on your marriage to your wife?

Did you have an employment pass or LoC while you were working for the sole proprietorship?

So you were working illegally in Singapore then, correct? And as a teacher, it would have been known that while on an EP your wife could not work for another employer as it's against MOM's laws. Therefore, without having any employees having been on the CPF rolls, and nobody on an employment Pass of any sort, It would have almost meant, without any uncertainty, that her husband was running the sole proprietorship and therefore you were working illegally. It would seem that they are correct in not granting you any other LTVP's. You and your wife have contravened the laws of MOM & ICA. I reckon she better "Hope" her EP will be renewed as well......... :-|

But you don't have a right to work in it unless you have a proper pass......

That fact still remains........

If they have somehow got wind of it, it might be a reason.

Did the company have it's own bank account? If it did, is/was your name also on the account as a signatory?

We don't have any way of knowing why you have been rejected, but with the information gleaned so far (which is like trying to pull teeth from a hen, by the way) it would appear that, by your own admission, you were working illegally here in Singapore. The fact that the company had a nil return has no consequence on whether there were any illegal workers or not. Lots of start-ups don't make any money the first year. (Theoretically it should have been impossible to have a "nil return" as your wife had costs to set the company up, and even if you didn't generate income, the start-up costs would have created a loss). Additionally, they know it's almost impossible for a teacher with the MOE to have a part time business. Most of the government teachers complain of being overworked already for the salary they draw.

I don't know what it is, but I feel there is something else not being revealed here.....

ICA is a bit of a mystery and it's really hard to get a handle on why the do or do not give out LTVP's. Just the the guy here who got a valid EPEC but was denied an LTVP. The reasons? unknown. We can only guess.
