When it comes to registering a company in Singapore, you have two options. You can start your cleaning business from your home or from a regular physical store. In either case, one of the requirements is that your business be registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA).
Registering your business with ACRA is very easy. Simply access BizFile, ACRA’s online platform. To do this, you will need a SingPass ID. If your business is located in your home, you will also need to register with the Housing and Development Board (HDB). You can find this option under the Resident Workplace program.
Once you register your business with AIDA, you will need to choose a name for your organization and select a corporate identity. When choosing a logo for your organization, you should briefly check to see if it is a high-traffic logo. Make sure that the logo is suitable and that it accurately reflects your business. Our 3E accounting experts can also help you with this. We will then draft and prepare the incorporation documents detailing the specifics of your business.
You will need to write the fine print and include the details of your company’s directors and shareholders. If you are a foreign entrepreneur, you will need to provide a copy of your passport and address as proof of residence. Once this is done, wait until you receive your Certificate of Incorporation and register for the Goods and Services Tax (GST). You also need to have enough money to support your business for at least 6 to 12 months to keep your income growing.
Licenses and permits required
To operate a cleaning business in Singapore, you must obtain a commercial cleaning services singapore license. This can be purchased from the National Environment Agency (NEA) for $130. It can take up to 30 days to obtain and issue the license. Once you receive your license, you can legally use it for one year. If you wish to renew your license, you must apply for an extension 90 days before your license expires.
