Provision of Nominee Director / Shareholder / Named Secretary

Home » Provision of Nominee Director / Shareholder / Named Secretary

A Singapore company must have at least 1 Director and 1 Secretary who are ordinarily residents in Singapore.

It is mandatory that the Company Directors and Shareholders are required to register with the Registrar of Companies of Singapore whereby the information will be publicly available. As such, situations may arise for a need of Nominee Director or Shareholder to be appointed to allow for confidentiality and anonymity as well as regulatory requirements.

If you are a foreigner who wishes to incorporate a company in Singapore, without the intention of being re-located to Singapore, you may engage our services below:

  1. Nominee Director – We can act as the local Director for your company, so that the requirement of incorporating a company is met.
  2. Nominee Shareholder – Although there is no requirement on the nationality of the shareholder, we can act as the nominee shareholder if requested.
  3. Named Secretary – We can act as the local Secretary for your company, so that the requirement of incorporating a company is met.
