About Singapore Corporate
Service Providers and APacTrust
Corporate service providers in Singapore play a very significant ‘behind-the-scenes’ role in the operations of a business, and they assist all sizes of companies, from small start-ups to larger multinationals. However, more often than not, business owners usually make hasty decisions on choosing a corporate service provider based on price rather than quality, almost as if it were a box-ticking exercise. At APacTrust, we see many entrepreneurs in Singapore failing to recognize the value of a corporate service provider, and focusing solely on fees alone can lead to future issues for business owners.
This is why we suggest that before you embark on your selection journey, it is important to understand the functionalities of company secretarial services and what to look out for when choosing one.

Selecting a corporate service provider
To begin, consider the type of qualified team the service provider has and the professional advisory they can provide. For example, a reputable corporate service provider should be able to offer advice not only on incorporation matters but also on accounting, tax filing, and share structuring as well.
The obligation a corporate service provider
Every good corporate service provider should have the obligation to do a health check for their new clients to ensure that their corporate documents are in order, well prepared, accurately recorded, properly filed, etc. This is to confirm that the clients they are servicing are fully compliant with no outstanding issues that will lead to penalties.
The integrity of a corporate service provider
To engage a reliable corporate service provider, you must choose a reputable and trustworthy agent to handle your stuff. Negligence and poor service may lead to compliance issues. In extreme cases, business owners as clients may be exposed to heavy fines and imprisonment too. Therefore, it is advisable to be selective when choosing a corporate service provider and of course, engage those reputable ones with at least 2 decades of experience and above
