Advantages of Singapore Company:

  • Limited liability for shareholders. This means that if the company fails, the shareholders may lose the entire value of their shares but no more, unless they have given guarantees.
  • A company has its own legal identity. This means that, it can enter into legal agreements, it can own property, it can sue and be sued all in its own name. It will continue to exist, even if its shareholders or directors die, resign or go bankrupt.
  • It is easier to transfer the ownership of a company than an interest in a partnership, as all that is required is a transfer of shares, subject to the company's constitution.
  • Clear structures are laid out in the Companies Act governing the organisation and procedures to be followed by companies.
  • The minimum number of shareholders and directors is one.
