How do I register a company with ACRA?


  • All foreigners must register their Singapore company through a professional Singapore-based corporate services firm, according to Singapore company law. Singaporeans can hire a corporate services firm or do it themselves by following the steps below:

    1. Log in to the Bizfile site with your CorpPass or SingPass digital ID
    2. Make an application for the name you choose for your business
    3. Once the name has been approved, you will be given a name approval transaction number
    4. Enter information about your company’s structure, such as the names and identifying information of company directors, company secretary, and shareholders; the business’s registration address; the company constitution; and so on, using the name approval transaction number.
    5. Make a payment for your business’s registration fee.
    6. You will receive an email message shortly after making the payment alerting you that your company has been successfully registered.
    7. This email provides your company’s Unique Entity Number (UEN), which also serves as an electronic certificate of formation.
