According to the Companies Act, Chapter 50, every company registered in Singapore must have at least one local director, who can be a Singapore citizen, a permanent resident status holder, or a work visa holder if he/she meets the legal requirements. Many agents in Singapore offer the services of nominee directors, and this is a definite help for your business. However, you need to keep in mind, if you need to open a corporate account with a local bank, it is the director of the company must be present at the interview during the opening of the account. Banks in Singapore pay attention to the number of firms registered on one director. If there are more than 15 such firms - opening a bank account may be in jeopardy. In this case, verification of the individual plays a very important role in this process, as before opening an account you can check your director and change him if necessary. According to the results of this type of verification, it may turn out that there are more than 200 companies registered on the director. Not only does this make it impossible to open a company bank account, but it can also be dangerous for your company. If at least one of the companies has debts or any other problems, your company may face closure, fines, inspections.
