I knew that I needed to look into secretarial services before getting my business off the ground. Even though I had six months from the official establishment of my company, I wanted to make sure that I had everything I would need ready, even if it was not needed immediately. I did not want to default on anything, which can be a very easy thing to happen because there are so many different laws and regulations for a business in Singapore. I wanted to make sure I had all my t’s crossed and all my i’s were dotted.
Usually, it is always a corporate lawyer who holds this position, which makes sense since there are so many different laws and regulations. It is best to have someone who has studied these laws and regulations for years since they are not going to miss something that the average business owner possibly could. They have extensive training, and their education is what prepares them for this. The corporate secretary has many duties, such as filing the annual returns and handling any audits that may occur. It is especially important during an audit that the company secretary be trained in handling accounts.
I knew that I needed to make sure that my company incorporation was successful before bringing on a corporate secretary. When I passed that step, I already knew the company I was going to use to bring on my corporate secretary. This company ensures that all of the requirements have been met, and they have different price packages. I chose the upper tier because I wanted to make sure that I had everything I needed. The price was also extremely affordable. I like knowing that I have this professional as a director in my company as it gives me a peace of mind!
