Registering a Subsidiary Company or Branch

Foreign companies can set up operations in Singapore in two different ways:

  • Incorporating a Subsidiary Company

  • Registering a branch of a Foreign Company

Incorporating a Subsidiary Company

A foreign company can choose to be incorporated as a subsidiary (i.e. local company). The shares of the subsidiary can be held by the foreign company as the sole shareholder. As a local company, the subsidiary will have to comply with the statutory and disclosure requirements of the Companies Act.


Registering as a branch of a Foreign Company

A foreign company can choose to set up a branch in Singapore. Unlike a subsidiary, the branch of a foreign company must have a locally resident authorised representative. The foreign branch must also comply with the statutory and disclosure requirements of the Companies Act.
