"There was excellent customer support, as well the whole digital experience was easy and seamless as all parts of the process were fully integrated. It saved us a lot of time and frustration from figuring out all the separate elements (company setup, secretarial service, banking, accounting, etc.) of starting a company ourselves."

Frequently Asked Questions

When applying for an EP for yourself (as the business owner) or a potential employee, you will need to submit 3 standard documents in PDF along with your Employment Pass form:

– Copy of your passport
– Company’s latest business profile registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA).
– Your educational certificates (diploma, degree certificate etc. must be translated by a certified translator).

If you are an employer, read our article on applying for an Employment Pass. For more general information on what is required for an Employment Pass, click here.

Yes. If you wish to become a Singapore permanent resident, you can apply through the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). The application will be assessed based on ICA’s PR criteria.
Foreigners who are not residing in Singapore, e.g. Social Visit Pass holders, don’t need to apply for an EP to be a registered director of a company.
You can renew your employment pass with us by supplying a copy of your EP, a copy of your passport, your residential address, and your monthly salary in SGD – we can take care of the rest.
Yes, an Employment Pass holder is allowed to own shares in a Singapore-registered company.
You should ask the new employer to apply for a new Employment Pass for you. There is no need to cancel the existing EP before applying for a new one.

Your application will be considered based on its merits and under prevailing guidelines.
Yes, but only if the EP holder has obtained a Letter of Consent (LOC) from MOM.

We recognise that secondary directorship positions in related companies, e.g. subsidiary, may be critical to the EP holder’s job role. As such, we would generally allow EP holders to take up such secondary roles by granting an additional “Letter of Consent”.

If the secondary directorship position is in an unrelated company, e.g. fund entities, we may still grant the LOC if it is relevant to the EP holder’s primary occupation.
You will have to submit a new Employment Pass application for your S Pass holder. There is no need to cancel the S Pass while doing so.

You also don’t need to advertise on the Jobs Bank.
No, employers of S Pass holders will not have to make Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributions for them.
No, an S Pass holder cannot be a director or sole-proprietor of a business. If you are an S Pass holder who wants to set up a business in Singapore, you should terminate your current employment and apply for an EntrePass or Employment Pass.
No, there are no marriage restrictions on S Pass holders.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Our refund policy:
We care about you – within 30 days from your purchase, if you’re unhappy with our services, we’ll refund our fee. Email or call us, and we’ll process the refund within five working days.

What it doesn’t cover:
We will not be able to refund Government fees once the application has been submitted, nor any third-party processing fees.

When it applies:
We cannot guarantee any specific legal outcomes when you use our services. For instance, a company registration might be filed correctly but still get rejected by the Company Registry for reasons beyond our control. We can only refund our fees for issues we are directly responsible for. In the case that you purchase a service and later change your mind, we can’t issue a refund.
