Singapore Ready Made Company

Incorporating a new company in Singapore is a relatively quick and simple process, only taking around three days. Purchasing a ready made company offers an even quicker incorporation time whilst also skipping over many of the formalities associated with registering a new company. Purchasing a shelf company entails completing the relevant company purchase forms, appointing new directors and completing the share transfer of ownership. This process is very quick and your ready made company is authorised to begin trading immediately.

As the incorporation of a new company in Singapore is efficient the major benefit to purchasing a ready made company come is the company history. Our ready made companies have been fully maintained up to accounting and reporting standards set out by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority. This includes annual returns, company registers, financial statements, auditing reports, etc. This gives your company a full, stable and positive history from the moment of purchase; an advantage unique to shelf companies.

Your company image and reputation is drastically enhanced with a stable company history, offering the following benefits:
