Subsidiary Company Registration

The majority of small and mid-sized foreign enterprises choose to start a Singapore company by registering it as a Subsidiary company in Singapore. It also benefits the foreigners as they can reap the rewards of the progressive tax regime of Singapore, since a subsidiary company is considered as a resident of Singapore.

A Singapore Subsidiary Company is a private limited company setup by a foreign or local entity, which also holds the majority shares of the firm. This is the most preferred option for companies both foreign and local to make their presence felt in Singapore. Also, a subsidiary company can also be a wholly owned foreign enterprise.
