Additionally, there are various government financing schemes available for companies in Singapore including the micro-loan programme, Loan Insurance Scheme and Local Enterprise Finance Scheme (LEFS) offered by SPRING Singapore; Development and Expansion Incentive; Pioneer Incentive Scheme; ACE Start-ups Scheme; and iSTART:ACE. The tax structure is very encouraging too for entrepreneurs, as corporate tax marginal rates are third lowest in the world. Also, with the worlds best airport Changi International serving over 80 international airlines connecting people to more than 190 cities in 160 countries daily, as well as hosting many leading logistics firms such as UPS and FedEx, connectivity is never an issue. For those who think long-term, Singapore has signed over 20 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and 74 comprehensive and 8 limited Avoidance of Double Tax Agreements (DTAs), facilitating trans-border trade and making it cheaper for Singapore-based firms to expand their operations internationally. PRE-INCORPORATION CONSIDERATIONS In its second part, the guide provides a snapshot of the various types of business entities available for incorporation in Singapore. While there are five options to choose from, namely sole-proprietorship, partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership (LLP) and a private limited company; the last one remains the most popular option as it is the most advanced and flexible business entity. Even among the private limited company structures, an Exempt Private Company, which has no more than 20 shareholders (none among whom are corporate entities), is the most preferred type. The final step in company incorporation, the guide details, is to apply for work visas. The types range from work permits for domestic workers and labourers, S Pass for mid-level skilled workers, and employment pass (EP) for experienced professionals, managerial personnel, executives or specialists with good credentials. POST-INCORPORATION REQUIREMENTS The guide, in its third and final part, elaborates on the formalities a business entity needs to fulfil for successful business operations in Singapore. Proper accounting and bookkeeping, payroll management, compulsory contributions to the Central Provident (CPF) and Skill Development (SDF) funds, taxation requirements, and customs and trademark registrations, are the main considerations.

The guide we published today is essentially a snapshot of the entire process of running a successful business in Singapore.
