What are the benefits of starting a Sole Proprietorship?

Full control of your business

As the sole owner of the firm, you will have complete control of all its operations including decision making. That is, you do not have to consult third parties before implementing changes unless you deem it necessary.

No profit sharing

Since you are the sole owner of the company, there are no shareholders, all profits or income accrued is yours.

Least compliance requirements

Once you register as a sole proprietor, you only need to renew your membership annually, and you are not obligated to file tax returns every year.

Ease of termination

Since you are the sole decision maker in the business, terminating it is easy, less time consuming and inexpensive as compared to private and public companies that have shareholders and directors.

In a nutshell

What is a Sole Proprietorship?

A sole proprietorship is a business vehicle that is owned by one person or company. The business structure is easy to set up and is suitable for low-risk service providers such as copywriters, designers and small retailers.

Sole proprietorships need not audit their accounts or file annual returns with ACRA. Instead, profits are taxed at personal income tax rates as the sole proprietorship is not considered a legal entity, thus giving the business owner exclusive use of his business profits. This business type is also ease to close.

Who can start a Sole Proprietorship?

Any Singaporean citizen, Permanent Resident (PR) or EntrePass holder who is 18 years old and above is allowed to register for a sole proprietorship.
