Yes! Singapore Companies Act allows for 100% ownership of Singapore companies by foreign persons or entities. There are no restrictions around foreign ownership when setting up your company.

Private limited company is recommended for foreigners as they can own 100% of a private limited company where the shareholders and directors can be foreigners.

Alternatively, if you are foreign company looking for a foothold in Singapore, you can incorporate Subsidiary Company, Branch Office and Representative Office. Contact our consultant and get the best advice on which entity suits you best.

A foreigner can’t run a business in Singapore if the company does not have at least one resident director. Hiring a local nominee solves the problem. You can appoint a trustworthy local partner in Singapore or reach our temporary nominee director service.

After you have obtained a valid work pass, you can appoint yourself as the local resident director for the company.
