How many directors does a subsidiary company require?

The company must have at least one director who must be ordinarily resident in Singapore.

As a foreign company looking to register a subsidiary company in Singapore, what are our options if we do not have a local director?

There are several options you may consider:

  • If you plan to relocate one of your senior employees to Singapore, you can apply for an employment pass for this individual who can act as the local director once the EP is approved.
  • Alternatively, you can use our nominee director services.
  • You could appoint a local person you know or a local employee who is willing to act as the local director.
