A virtual office address in Singapore is one of the options available for use to register with ACRA.
When you register a business with Acra , you will be required to provide a local Singapore address for incorporation purposes. You will have 3 options.
Use your Singapore residential address. If you live in a private property, you can simply use the address. If you live in HDB, you will need to apply for approval. Key points for HDB application:
- It costs $20 for approval and the approval is valid for 5 years.
- There are certain trade restrictions.
- You are required to install fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.
- Not allowed to use for storage and warehousing.
This option has the lowest cost but an important consideration is that your residential address will be exposed and when things go awry, people might come knocking on your door.
Renting your own office space or serviced office. Either way, you will have an address for incorporation and a physical space for work. A CBD address will set you back by anything from $850 to $3000 per month depending on size and facing.
