Local Companies

A company entity is one of the most common business types in Singapore. The company and owners (of the company) are regarded as separate entities.

The main types of companies are:

Local Private Company

Private Limited Companies (Pte Ltd) are made up of less than 50 shareholders.

Local Public Companies

The company can have more than 50 members, usually their capital is collected by issuing debentures of shares to the public.

The private limited company entity is the most preferred type to conduct business operations in Singapore. One of the biggest benefits of a Private Limited Company is that the shareholders are not personally liable for the debts and losses incurred by the company company beyond their respective amounts of share capital.
