Setting up as a sole trader

Post by pupsiecola » Thu, 14 Jun 2012 6:55 am

Hi all,

We're moving to Singapore next Thursday. My husband has a 2 year Visa and the kids and I have Dependant Passes.

I set up my own company here in the UK in February as a sole trader. It's been growing nicely and I want to set it up in Singapore as I think it could be equally as successful (can't run it in the UK remotely). From what I've just read I can work in Singapore so long as my employer gives permission. But I can't find information re setting up on my own as a sole trader equivalent?

Any help would be very much appreciated. I confess I only spent about 10 minutes looking. Having only decided to move to Singapore 2 months ago things have been rather hectic!

Thanks all,

Start here.

Do searches for additional info. It can be done. It might not be easy depending upon what it is you want to do.
