He took the leap to start his own home-based food business during circuit breaker, Singapore News & Top Stories

SINGAPORE – All it took was a random suggestion to his wife during the circuit breaker that he should set up a home-based company to sell food, and telecommunications sales manager Azlan Shah Rabel was suddenly up to his neck in a business he knew nothing about.

Mr Azlan, 35, who admits he was profoundly ignorant of the catering game, started up his own home-based catering company called Foodprove which paid homage to the delicious cooking of his father Mohamed Zain, 71.

Even though Nr Azlan initially did not know how to cook the dishes himself, he still wanted to share the food with others.

“I had never considered selling food as a business before. Maybe the circuit breaker was a blessing in disguise. Starting up a business then was as good a time as any.”

He “bootcamped” with his father to learn and perfect the recipe for sambal goreng pengantin, a spicy beef dish commonly served at Malay weddings.

“We had zero experience doing a home-based business, and zero experience cooking in such large quantities. It was a very steep learning curve,” said Mr Azlan.

“It is one thing cooking, say, fried rice for myself, and another cooking such large quantities and feeding people outside of my family. It was quite daunting.”

It was a challenge getting customers at first, which was one of his biggest worries.

“Sambal goreng pengantin is not something you cannot find elsewhere, it’s fairly common,” he said. 

But with word of mouth, as well as reviews on two blogs featuring halal food, orders began coming in. The first delivery day saw about two or three orders, but now there are 12 to 15 orders each time.

Mr Azlan runs most of the business on his own, doing the grocery shopping, managing social media, cooking, handling of the orders, packaging and delivery. 

His wife and family – his parents and in-laws – also help out on “cook days”. Foodprove accepts orders in advance after delivery dates are announced on social media.  

There are now about two delivery dates a month although it was twice a week during the circuit breaker period, said Mr Azlan.

The menu has now also expanded to include lasagna and frozen epok-epok, or curry puffs. 

“We cook things that we think we cook well,” said Mr Azlan. He plans to branch out into frozen sauces, such as beef bolognese sauce.

He has picked up a lot along the way since the business began. “We learn something from each cook, like knowing where to get the best prices for the ingredients.”

Initially, he would be up until 2am or 4am cutting and prepping the ingredients for the next day, but the process has been streamlined, and the end of the circuit breaker measures meant his family members could help him.

He has also changed to automating the orders through an online form instead of a laborious manual method in the early days.

The decision to start a home-based business during the circuit breaker was one that came out of nowhere, but it is one Mr Azlan does not regret. “We hope to keep this business going for a long time,” he said.

“I’m very happy that we have regular customers who keep coming back with orders, and we don’t want to disappoint them.”

Overview

Overview


Food hygiene standards in Singapore

SFA regulates Singapore’s food retail industry to ensure that food sold at retail outlets is safe for consumption. This is important as Singapore is known for being a food paradise, offering foodies everything from delectable hawker fare to the best of international haute cuisine.

SFA licenses food retail businesses, including restaurants, cafes, snack bars, supermarkets, mobile food wagons and food caterers. Food retail businesses can provide food to customers for dining at the premises or for take away. Food retail businesses can apply for a licence online here.  

In 2014, SFA introduced the Food Safety Management System (FSMS) to raise hygiene standards in the food catering industry. All applicants for catering licences are required to submit a FSMS plan during licence application and renewal.


Food handlers

Food handlers who prepare and handle food – such as chefs, cooks, and kitchen helpers – need to be trained and registered with SFA. Licensees can log in to GoBusiness Licensing website via CorpPass (if licence is under company) or SingPass (if licence is under individual name), search for the Licence > Action > Amend, to register / update details of food handlers.


Food hygiene officers

Food Hygiene Officers (FHOs) assist licensees to ensure high standards of hygiene and sanitation are maintained in the licensed premises. Licensees of certain types of food retail establishments are required to engage FHOs to ensure hygiene standards are met. Licensees can log in to GoBusiness Licensing website via CorpPass (if licence is under company) or SingPass (if licence is under individual name), search for the Licence > Action > Amend, to register / update details of food hygiene officer. 


Grading of licensed eating establishments

The Grading System for Eating Establishments is a structured system of appraisal for food retail outlets. It encourages licensees to practise good personal and food hygiene, and housekeeping of their premises. Retail food establishments are given a grade by SFA based on the overall hygiene, cleanliness and housekeeping standards of the premises. All food retail outlets are advised to display the certificate indicating their grade, enabling the public to make a more informed choice when patronizing food outlets.

Eating establishments and food stalls are assessed by SFA and given the following grades:

  • A – a score of 85 per cent or higher
  • B – a score of 70 per cent to 84 per cent
  • C – a score of 50 per cent to 69 per cent
  • D – a score of 40 per cent to 49 per cent

[*NEW: SFA will be introducing an integrated licensing and recognition framework to replace the annual grading and licence renewal system for food establishments. More details will be announced in 2021.]

SFA has developed a set of food hygiene guidelines and educational materials to educate licensees and food handlers with basic knowledge on good hygiene practices that they can adopt during food handling at their premises.


Points Demerit System

All licensees and their food handlers have a responsibility to ensure the food sold to the public is clean and wholesome. They must observe good personal and food hygiene at all times. Under Section 99 of the Environmental Public Health Act, a licence may be suspended or cancelled if a licensee violates the Act or the Regulations made there under. The Points Demerit System (PDS) was introduced in 1987 as a systematic and fair approach to deal with the suspension and cancellation of licences for food hygiene infringements. It also seeks to motivate licensees to improve their hygiene standards. Under the PDS, depending on the nature of offence, demerit points are given for each public health offence according to the following categories:

  • Minor offences – 0 demerit point
  • Major offences – 4 demerit points
  • Serious offences – 6 demerit points

If a licensee accumulates 12 demerit points or more within 12 months, his licence will either be suspended for two weeks or four weeks, or be cancelled, depending on his past record of suspension. Please note that the demerit points are dated to the date the offence was committed and not the date of conviction or the date of payment of composition fines. A list of offences and their corresponding demerit points can be found here [PDF, 559 KB].

In 2010, the PDS was extended to main operators of coffee shops, food courts, and canteens to encourage operators to place greater emphasis on the overall hygiene standards of the premises such as general housekeeping, toilet maintenance and refuse management. With effect from 1 March 2013, if a main licensee accumulates 12 demerit points or more within 12 months, his licence will either be suspended for 1, 2 or 3 days, depending on his past record of suspensions. During the period of suspension, all individual stalls within the coffee shop, food court and canteen are required to be closed as well.

Since 1 April 2014, demerit points for food hygiene offences have been revised to categorise each hygiene offence according to the its impact on food safety. Offences which are assessed to pose higher risk of food contamination and have greater impact on food safety are accorded more demerit points, whereas those which have less direct impact on food safety or are more administrative in nature are accorded fewer, or no demerit point. With effect from 1 April 2020, higher penalties will be imposed on lapses detected in the toilet. The revised penalties do not apply to offences committed before 1 April 2020. 

Annex A [PDF, 559 KB] contains a list of offences with the revised demerit points. The list is available in the following languages:

More details of the revised PDS can be found here [PDF, 426 KB].


The Sale of Food Online via E-commerce Platforms

The sale of food via the Internet through e-commerce platforms, such as online marketplaces, bricks and clicks1, social media platforms and food delivery services, is increasingly prevalent in Singapore. E-commerce platforms2 act as intermediaries between the food sellers3 and customers. As e-commerce platforms do not carry out any handling, cooking or other forms of processing of food, they currently do not require a licence to operate.

Food sellers who sell on e-commerce platforms have the responsibility to ensure that the food they sell are obtained from SFA-regulated sources, and are prepared/processed in a safe and hygienic manner that does not compromise food safety.

Food sellers are subject to food safety and hygiene requirements under the Sale of Food Act (SOFA) and Environmental Public Health Act (EPHA). SFA will take enforcement action for any infringements of these requirements.

Section 15 SOFA: Selling unsafe or unsuitable food

(1)  A person must not sell food that the person knows or ought reasonably to know is unsafe.

(2)  A person must not sell food that the person knows or ought reasonably to know is unsuitable.

(3)  For the purposes of subsection (2), it is immaterial whether the food concerned is safe

 Section 40 EPHA: Articles of food unfit for human consumption

(1) No person shall, without lawful excuse, have in his possession for sale by retail any article of food intended for human consumption which is unsound or unfit for human consumption.

 Consumers should also exercise discretion when purchasing food products online. If in doubt about the food product, they should obtain more information (e.g. expiry dates, food labels) from the sellers or online platform before they decide to purchase the product.

1 Refers to business models which operate both online and offline, i.e. a business which has physical premises as well but also sells its products online

2 Refers only to platforms which conduct activities related to the buying and selling of food via the Internet

3 Refers to anyone who sells food over the internet, via e-commerce platforms


Food Delivery Services

Food delivery services generally refer to the delivery of cooked food from retail establishments to the consumer upon placement of order. As operators of food delivery services do not carry out any handling, cooking or other forms of processing of food, they currently do not require a licence to operate. However, they are responsible for ensuring that the food they deliver is transported in a manner that is hygienic and does not compromise food safety. This includes maintaining the cleanliness of the vehicle, as well as the carrier bag, receptacle and equipment used for the transportation of food.

Operators are still subject to food safety and hygiene requirements under the Sale of Food Act (SOFA) and Environmental Public Health Act (EPHA). For instance, Regulations 16(3) and 16(4) of the Environment Public Health (Food Hygiene) Regulations on “Transport of Food” stipulates provisions covering receptacles, such as carrier bags, used in the course of transportation of food. These receptacles must be able to prevent food from being contaminated. The provision of food unsafe, unsuitable or unfit for consumption would constitute an offence under these legislation.

Section 15 SOFA: Selling unsafe or unsuitable food

(1)  A person must not sell food that the person knows or ought reasonably to know is unsafe.

(2)  A person must not sell food that the person knows or ought reasonably to know is unsuitable.

(3)  For the purposes of subsection (2), it is immaterial whether the food concerned is safe

Section 40 EPHA: Articles of food unfit for human consumption

(1) No person shall, without lawful excuse, have in his possession for sale by retail any article of food intended for human, consumption which is unsound or unfit for human consumption.

Food delivery workers are not directly involved in the preparation of food, such as the washing and cutting of raw food, and the processing of ready-to-eat food. Therefore, they are currently not required to attend the Basic Food Hygiene Course.


HDB/URA’s Home-based Small Scale Business Scheme

Since 12 May 2020, home-based food businesses were allowed to resume operations for delivery and collection only. In Phase 2 of the reopening, home-based private dining will also be allowed from 19 June 2020, if a SafeEntry system is implemented. Home-based food businesses are required to comply with the Guidelines on Safe Distancing Measures for Home-based Food Businesses. View the video on the Dos and Don’ts for home-based food businesses.

The Malay edition of the video is available here.

The Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme by HDB and URA allows residents to prepare small quantities of food in their homes for sale.

The scale of operations in a residential unit is limited. This, together with the conditions of the Scheme, meant that food is prepared for only a very small number of people. Given this, SFA has a set of guidelines on food hygiene practices which operators under the scheme can refer to. As long as the operators comply with this set of guidelines, they will not require a licence from SFA.

In view that the food prepared by home-based business is meant to be small-scale, they should not sell the food to retail food establishments or to/at temporary fairs or offer catering services. Retailers should only sell food which is:
i. legally imported;
ii. prepared in their licensed premises; or
iii. from licensed food establishments in Singapore.

For the sale of meat and seafood products, operators should only sell products that are legally imported in compliance with the Wholesome Meat and Fish Act (WMFA). Operators should also ensure that the food they sell are obtained from SFA-regulated sources, are prepared in a hygienic manner and are safe for human consumption. In view that ready-to-eat raw fish* is considered a high-risk food as it does not go through a cooking process, and home-based operators may not have the proper facility and segregation of processes to handle ready-to-eat raw fish, home-based business operators are not allowed to prepare it for sale from home.

*Note: Under Section 2 of the Sale of Food Act (Cap 283), “fish” means any species of fish (whether marine or freshwater), and includes crustacea, shellfish, echinoderm and molluscs; and the eggs and young of any fish.

Persons who handle and prepare food under this scheme are encouraged to attend Food Safety Course Level 1. The list of SSG-approved training providers can be downloaded here.

Operators will still be subject to section 40 of the Environmental Public Health Act (EPHA) on provision of unfit food for consumption.

Section 40 EPHA: Articles of food unfit for human consumption

(1) No person shall, without lawful excuse, have in his possession for sale by retail any article of food intended for human, consumption which is unsound or unfit for human consumption.

Handling Allergenic Food

Food allergens are substances or ingredients in food that can cause an immune response in some people. Consumption of allergenic food, example, eggs, peanuts and shellfish, could cause allergic reactions such as rashes, swelling, and vomiting. Some food allergies could also be severe. Food operators should take note of the following tips when preparing food for customers with food allergies.

Tips on handling allergenic food

  1. Wash hands with soap after touching an allergen and prior to handling any non-allergen containing product.
  2. Check all raw and pre-packed ingredients (by reading the label) for potential allergens.
  3. Store allergenic food separately from non-allergenic food in the dry store and cold storage area. 
  4. Use dedicated utensils for dispensing and handling each allergen that is stored in dry store/cold storage area.
  5. Use clean and separate utensils, equipment and chopping boards when preparing food containing allergens.
  6. Clean and rinse allergen-containing containers, utensils, equipment and chopping boards as the last cleaning task.

Home-based F&B businesses flourish amid pandemic

SINGAPORE: Baking was her hobby for more than 10 years but Josephine Wee never thought that her homemade cookies were good enough to be sold.   

“My children love my cookies and always say why not sell them, but making for your family and selling to strangers are two different things,” she said. “When people pay, they expect some standard. How can I sell?”

But the 51-year-old, who worked as a tour guide for the past 30 years, decided to give it a shot last year after the COVID-19 pandemic annihilated the tourism industry.

Wanting to stay active after work dried up by March last year, Mrs Wee signed up for a variety of courses. It was at one of these courses offered by the NTUC LearningHub where she learnt about e-commerce and digital marketing.

In June, she took the first step to list her baked goods on Carousell.

“My boys told me ‘Don’t worry, you can do it!’” she recalled with a smile.

Orders did come through – first from her relatives, then strangers, building up into a consistent demand that Mrs Wee would spend more than 10 hours in her kitchen on some days.

The demand went on to October before reaching a lull in November. But the home baker did not have to worry as the year-end festive season proved to be a fillip for sales. 

“I saw three to four times my normal sales for Christmas. It was sheer madness.”

So far, the income from her home bakery Jo Bakes remains nowhere near her previous salary but Mrs Wee said it is “enough to get by” for her family. She is now the sole breadwinner after the pandemic also put her husband, a self-employed entertainer, out of work.

“It’s better than I expected because when I first started, I was clueless if I was going to make it. There are so many home bakers out there too,” she said. “So I’m just very thankful.”

FLOURISHING TRADE

Mrs Wee is not alone in starting a home-based business and surviving amid the pandemic. 

These micro-entrepreneurs were impacted by curbs put in place during the “circuit breaker” period, but after restrictions were lifted from May 12, the cottage industry – referring to small businesses that run from home – seemed to be thriving.

The boom in the number of new entrants, based on observations of social media which many of these home-based businesses rely on, stemmed from two factors, said Associate Professor Lawrence Loh from the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) business school.

First, a further shift to online selling which comes almost hand in hand with the pivoting away from bricks and mortar.  Second, starting out at home, which helps to cut costs, can be an alternative for those who have lost their jobs amid the pandemic, he said.

To be sure, there are also others who are taking the opportunity to pursue an entrepreneurial dream. 

Ms Chloe Ong set up an online shop Qicha to sell homemade tea in December last year. The 30-year-old, who is still a full-time employee at a tech start-up, decided to give it a go despite the pandemic-induced economic downturn as she believes she is among the few offering traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) remedies in pre-packed sachets.

Her tea offerings, which have been certified by her mother who is a TCM practitioner, came about when she started working from home last year and was looking for alternatives to coffee.

“With my mum’s recipes, I’ll pop by different TCM stores to buy the ingredients and make my own teabags. Then I wondered why there isn’t anything like that for people to consume herbal tea more easily.

“So I thought maybe my tea bags can help those who are caffeine sensitive or enjoy TCM like me.”

Ms Ong said she put in nearly S$10,000 to get started, and orders have been better than expected. As the pandemic drove consumers to buy online and to be more health-conscious, she sold 600 boxes of tea within the first month.

For Jessica Chow, leaving a full-time job last year to concentrate on baking full time was “a challenging decision” to make.

Orders for her home bakery Lookie Cookie, which has been around “as a pet project” since more than a year ago, was on the rise but the 28-year-old was not sure if demand would last.

Although mixing flour, eggs and sugar and coming up with something delicious like a stuffed cookie was a “cathartic” process that she enjoyed since she was a teenager, she was also given a new role at work which was worth giving a shot at.

Besides, quitting in the middle of a pandemic seemed “too risky”, recalled Ms Chow. 

“I was scared but at the same, I also really wanted to try doing it full time. In the end, I know if I don’t quit to do it now, I’d probably never know how it will be like so I decided to just do it,” she said.

EASE OF STARTING UP

For those new to running a business, starting out at home is “a lower risk move” as it does not require a large start-up capital and has other benefits such as flexible working hours, according to those who spoke to CNA.

The ever-growing trend of online shopping also meant that starting out was as easy as setting up a social media account.

Facebook and Instagram are the popular social media platforms that home-based businesses here use to promote their products or services. Instagram, in particular, with its growing user base and visual layout, has been most effective in translating “likes” into orders.

Ms Ong said: “Between Facebook and Instagram, Instagram is the one that I’ve seen more interest and engagements.”

Echoing that, Mrs Wee said Instagram is “very easy to use” and has “more serious customers” compared with other e-commerce platforms.

Social commerce – e-commerce via social media platforms – has grown steadily in Singapore, with orders up 155 per cent year-on-year in the first six months last year, observed artificial intelligence solutions start-up iKala. The total value of merchandise sold saw an even bigger jump of nearly seven-fold over the same period.

iKala’s co-founder and chief executive Sega Cheng believes social commerce is here to stay after consumers have experienced the ease and convenience of shopping on social media.

“Even before the pandemic, the agility and convenience of shopping on social media made it an attractive alternative for people but since COVID-19, it has well and truly taken off,” he said.

Social media platforms are recognising that, with Facebook rolling out business-friendly features such as Facebook Shops and Instagram Shopping last year. In Singapore, it also announced a grant worth about S$4.75 million aimed at supporting more than 800 small businesses.

“Small businesses are the heart of our communities and the backbone of our economy. They have also been some of the hardest hit by COVID-19, impacting lives and livelihoods for so many Singaporeans,” said a company spokesperson.

Home-based business owners have also been given a helping hand with the advent of e-payment methods. For instance, PayNow has proved to be “very convenient”, said Mrs Wee.

Recalling how she used to send photos of ATM receipts after making payments for online purchases, Mrs Wee said: “Almost immediately after an order is confirmed, payment can be made and you can check if you’ve received it. It is really amazing and very convenient for small businesses like ours.”

CONVERTING “LIKES” TO ORDERS

But the low entry barriers also means an ever influx of new players. And in the crowded space that is social media, it can be hard to capture eyeballs and translate them into orders.

iKala’s Mr Cheng said creating more real-time interaction and immersive experiences for customers is the way to go for social retailers. But this may be tricky for home-based businesses given how they run solo and have to divide their time between fulfilling orders and managing their online presence.

The three business owners are very much aware of the stiff competition and try to update their social media pages regularly. These can be posts with photos that are carefully worded and using trending hashtags, or Instagram stories that show what goes on in the kitchens as part of customer engagement.

“It is a double-edged sword and you’ll need to find a way to stand out from the saturated market,” said Ms Chow. One way, according to the new entrepreneur, is to have eye-catching photos, which is why she signed up for a food photography course last month.

“I think having a nice food photo really helps to capture attention and make someone stop scrolling. The world of food photography is so vast so I wanted to put myself through a course to get better at it, and transition to using a camera which is one of my 2021 goals,” Ms Chow added.

​​​​​​​

Mastering the art of engagement on social media also comes with a learning curve for Ms Ong, who said she has been paying more attention to how other businesses craft their posts on Instagram. She also tells herself to think from a customer’s perspective.

“If I’m the one buying the tea, what is it that I want to see from this Instagram page? Instead of promotions, I think I will want to know what are the herbs and their benefits,” she said.

“TCM is also something that can be taken for the long term so I thought I can educate people, especially the younger generation, about TCM and its concepts like what is defined as ‘heaty’.

Asked if they are also concerned about demand tapering off amid competition and a tepid economy, the home-based business owners are taking it in their strides.

Ms Ong believes she is in “a sweet spot” at the moment given her niche product. “I think we are still manageable for now but since it is also easy for others to start an online business, I am aware that there might be more competition eventually.”

Home baker Ms Chow said she would make use of lull periods to experiment with new menu items.

“I do see myself doing this for the medium term. One reason being that this is something that I enjoy and the world of desserts is still wide enough for me to keep pushing myself to learn and come up with new things,” she said.

Mrs Wee, who thinks it is unlikely for her to return to tourism anytime soon, said: “I am slightly worried about what’s going to happen this year – whether or not I can retain customers, whether or not I can find new customers.

“These are always the questions at the back of my head but these were the same questions that actually held me back from starting in the first place. So, I think I will keep the faith and see where this takes me.”

A Singaporean’s Guide to Starting Your Own Home-Based Business

So you took a couple of online courses and learned to draw or take photos really well.

Or you’ve decided to go pro with your baking and want to turn it into a legit side hustle.

Source: SpongeBob SquarePants | Giphy

However, you don’t have the capital to open a shop and you’re not planning to hire 50 workers to help you bake cookies and cakes either.

So how?

Well… why not start a home-based business from your HDB flat or private residence?


TL;DR: A Singaporean’s Guide to Starting a Home-Based Business

When it comes to setting up your own home-based business, you don’t need a license to do so.

BUT, there are a few guidelines that you have to adhere to:

Criteria for Home-Based Businesses Guidelines
Business Address HDB flat addresses cannot be registered as a business address BUT private residences can be registered
Business Activities Should not adversely affect your neighbours’ living environment or cause any nuisance (eg. noise, smoke, odour, dust, litter, high human or vehicular traffic)
Should not involve the use of heavy equipment or appliances not meant for domestic use
Should not require additional workers or staff
Should not require storage or movement of goods
Advertising No physical or paid advertising for the business (eg. display of signboard outside your flat or pay for advertising in newspapers or on social media
Rules and Regulations Must follow rules and regulations of Singapore Food Agency for food hygiene and Fire Safety and Shelter Department for fire safety requirements

Introducing… The Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme

The home-based small scale business scheme allows you to carry out small scale home-based activities to supplement your household income.

And you don’t need a license or HDB or URA’s approval to do so.

HOWEVER.

Because HDB flats are primarily used for residential use, there are a couple of guidelines which you have to observe.

And if your business gets really successful.

Or grows to an extent where it is disruptive to your neighbours.

Maybe your brownies are so good that they bring ALL the boys and girls to the yard — even if you’re selling a dozen for $100.

(Or your HDB flat corridor…)

Then you’ll need to relocate your business to a proper retail or industrial space, and have to get a food business license to continue operating.

Guidelines For Home-Based Business

Here are the guidelines that you have to observe:

Criteria for Home-Based Businesses Guidelines
Business Address HDB flat addresses cannot be registered as a business address BUT private residences can be registered
Business Activities Should not adversely affect your neighbours’ living environment or cause any nuisance (eg. noise, smoke, odour, dust, litter, high human or vehicular traffic)
Should not involve the use of heavy equipment or appliances not meant for domestic use
Should not require additional workers or staff
Should not require storage or movement of goods
Advertising No physical or paid advertising for the business (eg. display of signboard outside your flat or pay for advertising in newspapers or on social media
Rules and Regulations Must follow rules and regulations of Singapore Food Agency for food hygiene and Fire Safety and Shelter Department for fire safety requirements

You can also refer to the HDB guidelines and URA guidelines for clarification.

What Kind of Businesses Can I Start at Home?

Source: SpongeBob SquarePants | Giphy

Here are some examples of businesses that you can carry out under the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme:

  • Baking on a small scale
  • Hairdressing, beauty, manicure or pedicure (note: massage services are not allowed in HDB flats!)
  • Simple factory work on a work rate basis
  • Private tuition for not more than 3 students at a time
  • Sewing services
  • Work as a freelance artist, journalist, photographer or writer

Supplementing Your Income During Circuit Breaker

The thing about running a home business — or any business for the matter.

Is that depending on what kind of business you’re running, you might be affected by things like COVID-19 and the implementation of Circuit Breaker.

For example, if you’re a home-based food business or conduct private tuition classes.

Then you’re probably more affected than someone who does remote office work using a computer.

If you need financial assistance because of your reduced income, you can apply for the COVID-19 Support Grant.

PSA: Circuit Breaker Advisory for Home-Based Food Businesses

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of Circuit Breaker.

Home-based food businesses can only operate if you comply with the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources’ guidelines:

Criteria for Home-Based Food Businesses Circuit Breaker Guidelines
Delivery and Collection Only delivery and collection of food orders is allowed
Ensure contactless delivery and collection (eg. safe distance of at least 1m and must wear a mask or avoid face-to-face interaction as far as possible)
Collection of food must be by appointment only so there is no waiting or queuing at common areas
Use cashless payment methods
Use digital tools to enable speedier contact tracing (eg. via the TraceTogether app)

Do You Need a Licence to Sell Home Bakes in Singapore?

You might have a hobby in baking at home, and this passion may potentially turn into a side business as a supplementary source of income. If so, are you required to apply for a licence?

Well, the simple answer is: you do not!

This applies whether you are living in an HDB flat, or a private residence. However, there are certain guidelines that you should follow if you wish to pursue a small-scale, home-based baking business. This article will cover them in detail.

Do also note that although a licence is not required to run a small-scale baking business from home, you may still need to register your business. For more information, refer to our article on registering a business in Singapore.

COVID-19 Update

From 19 June 2020 onwards (i.e. the start of Singapore’s post-circuit breaker Phase 2), all home-based businesses, such as home bakeries that produce baked goods for customers, will be able to operate as per normal.

However, businesses which involve customers entering the flat for prolonged periods of time will need to use SafeEntry for contact tracing purposes.

Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme Guidelines in Singapore

The Housing & Development Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) oversee the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme, which allows home owners to carry out small-scale businesses (such as baking businesses) from home.

Some of the guidelines in the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme that you should follow are:

1. No registration of your HDB flat address as your business address

Story continues

HDB flat addresses cannot be registered as business addresses. This is because HDB flats are strictly for residential use.

On the other hand, you may register the address of your private residential premises as your business address, provided that there is no material change of use of your residential premises.

2. Be considerate to your neighbours

While baking, you must be considerate of your surroundings. There should not be any excessive noise, smoke, or smells that might pose a nuisance to your neighbours.

3. No recruiting of employees outside of your household

You are not allowed recruit employees outside of your household to assist you in the preparation and delivery of your baked goods. No one may earn a salary off your home-based business apart from members of your household.

That said, if you require an extra helping hand from time to time, it is perfectly fine for your friends and family to help you by purchasing your ingredients, mixing or preparing them or even attending to the oven. You may pay them a small sum for their efforts if you wish to, but the payments should not be treated as a form of salary (especially in relation to your friends).

4. No loading/unloading of goods via vans or trucks

You are not allowed to load and unload goods via vans or trucks, which implies that you are not allowed to produce your baked goods in bulk.

For delivery purposes, try transporting your baked goods via car or public transport instead. However, only small quantities of food can be transported at any point of time.

Remember that under the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme, the sale of your food is strictly meant to supplement your income instead of being your main source of income.

5. No putting up of signboards or paid ads

Your baked goods should mainly be sold to your friends, relatives and people that you are familiar with. While sharing about the sales of your cupcakes and cookies on social media is permitted, you are not allowed to pay for advertisements on social media or any other online platform.

You are also not allowed to physically put up paid advertisements or display a business signboard outside your home.

6. No selling of food at stalls

You are not allowed to set up food stations or stalls at events/food fairs, and you cannot sell your home-baked goods at food establishments.

Food Health and Safety Standards

Even though home-based bakers are not required to apply for a licence to sell their baked goods, they are advised to follow the food hygiene guidelines issued by the National Environment Agency (NEA).

This is because one of the potential hazards of consuming home-baked goods is that the food was not hygienically prepared. Food establishments such as restaurants or food outlets are subject to a graded system of appraisal which indicates the overall hygiene, cleanliness and up-keeping of the premises where food is prepared (A being the best, and D being the worst). Customers can see displayed grades and decide whether to patronise the eatery.

However, residential premises are not subject to such an appraisal system. Customers of home-baked goods may therefore be at greater risk of falling ill after consuming such goods if the goods were not hygienically prepared.

NEA’s food hygiene guidelines cover:

1. Personal hygiene

Bacteria and other forms of micro-organisms that cannot be seen with the naked eye can be found on our hands, and they can be transmitted easily onto the food that you handle. To reduce the likelihood of an illness or a stomach-ache, you must wash your hands thoroughly with soap, before and after the food preparation process.

Additionally, wash your hands again should you visit the toilet halfway through preparation, or after handling waste products.

For extra precaution, you can wear gloves during the preparation process and the handling of the finished baked goods. Also, do not handle and bake food when you are feeling unwell or sick.

2. Kitchen hygiene

Your kitchen must be kept clean and hygienic. All food preparation surfaces and equipment, such as bowls, mixers, ovens, spoons and cups, should be cleaned and sanitised regularly, before and after every session in the kitchen.

This reduces the chance of contamination, and the attraction of unwanted household pests such as flies, cockroaches and rats. These pests carry harmful bacteria and dirt which can cause serious food-related illnesses.

Be wary of brushing off crumbs off the table, and sweep anything that hits the floor. If you have pets and children, refrain from allowing them to enter the kitchen whilst you are preparing food.

3. Food safety

Whilst choosing ingredients for your baked goods, be sure to obtain ingredients from approved sources.

Also, check that the ingredients have not passed their expiry dates.

4. Storage safety

Store your ingredients at the right temperature, and in the right places. Your refrigerator must be kept clean and food items should be stored in a proper manner. For example, raw food items should not be placed on top of cooked food.

Harmful diseases such as salmonella and E. coli may become prominent in your refrigerator if raw foods are not stored properly. These diseases can cause diarrhoea, fever and vomiting.

You can read the NEA’s food hygiene guidelines for the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme in full here.

Can Foreigners on a Dependant’s Pass in Singapore Start a Home-Based Baking Business?

A foreigner on a Dependant’s Pass (DP) in Singapore who wants to start a home-based baking business will need to:

  • Have a company registered in Singapore for their home-based baking business

  • Have the company apply to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) for a Letter of Consent for the foreigner to work in the company (either as a company director or employee)

This is in addition to complying with all of the above rules on running a business under the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme.

Do also note that the foreigner on a DP cannot be an existing company director or shareholder of the company that will be applying for a Letter of Consent for them to work for the company.

Joining a Baking Community

If you decide to target a wider audience, you may wish to join a baking community, such as the Home Bakers Club (Singapore) Facebook group. Depending on what the baking community offers, being part of a baking community may help you connect with other bakers and provide access to recipes or events. They may also promote your baked goods, and simplify the process of delivering and selling your baked goods.

Baking communities that help promote and sell your baked goods may have additional requirements for you to meet before they will assist you your business. These requirements can include passing a taste test or obtaining a food hygiene certificate from a certified agency.

Therefore before signing up to join a baking community, check the baking community’s requirements for joining and whether you are willing to fulfil these requirements (if any).

Going Public with Your Business

If the demand for your baked goods increases and you wish to increase sales, you might have to go beyond the scope of the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme.

For example, instead of purchasing the ingredients yourself, you might require a supplier. You might need a larger delivery vehicle, or the assistance of extra staff. Finally, you might also need an area where customers can purchase and consume your food.

If you choose to go beyond the scheme, you will need to obtain a Food Shop Licence. To obtain this licence, you are required to submit planning permission approval from either the URA or HDB, and documents such as a tenancy agreement.

Apart from this, you will have to comply with the Code of Practice on Environmental Health when renovating your premises, and your staff will need to obtain food hygiene certificates.

For more information, check out our article on the legal requirements to open a restaurant in Singapore.

Incorporating and operating a business is expensive. Therefore, you should be sure to do so only if you have the funds, along with a reasonable prospect of success. Important considerations include the costs and location of premises, operating costs and the level of commitment that you are willing to put in. Starting a full-fledged business is a huge leap compared to a home-based one that is governed under the Home-Based Small Scale Business Scheme.

Bakers take pride and joy in their craft. Satisfied smiles and contented customers are the driving force of their efforts, motivating them to continue baking.

Baking is also a passion that can be easily translated into a source of income. However, while doing so, you must ensure proper hygiene standards, so that consumers can safely trust in the preparation methods of your home-baked goods.

The guidelines mentioned above emphasise the importance of food safety, and increase a home-based baker’s responsibility regarding the proper preparation of baked goods and conduct of business.

With all this in mind, the trust and demand for home-baked cakes, muffins, cookies and brownies will surely increase.

Home Based Food Businesses in Singapore: The Chinese New Year 2021 Edition

PUBLISHED January 22nd, 2021 05:00 am | UPDATED February 1st, 2021 10:38 pm

It’s been almost a year since Circuit Breaker was imposed, leading to an unprecedented surge of Home Based Business (HBB) owners. Since life will not be going “back to normal”, HBBs are definitely here to stay, as well as the self-starters who rose up to the challenge in pursuing a career path on this uncertain road. And with the festive season around the corner, here’s the Chinese New Year edition on what’s cooking and trending in our HBB community.

A word to the wise: do check if there are any blackout dates and surcharges. It’s a particularly busy period so expect late delivery, the occasional wrong order, and delayed replies to enquiries. Most of the sellers run solo and some have day jobs to keep, so remember to be kind and considerate towards one another!

Superbloom

Auspicious Spring Set

As with most home-based business owners, former sales director Sylvia Ramlal is a one-woman show that turned her hobby of handcrafting the most intricate flowers made of jelly, into a business venture. Each konjac base is injected with Sylvia’s imagination in colors, creating peonies, koi, and text amongst other things. Natural colours and flavours such as dragonfruit and raspberry are available upon request, though the likes of artificial lychee, strawberry, longan, and apple are popular too. It takes three hours to produce one cake, thus a very limited number are available per day. Pre-orders are open but cakes are sold out on 8-12 February. Prices start from $48 for a set of six minis.

Direct message Superbloom to order.

Molten Brown

As the name suggests, mosaic art school founder Nanette Zehnder makes gooey-centred brownies using imported premium ingredients – think French butter and Valrhona chocolate. Initially, Nanette’s menu included foccacia, cookies, and even pang susi, but the single mum has settled on a winning signature brownie recipe. A box of six thick squares starts from $42, with flavours like himalayan salt, black forest, Oreo, and Jamaican rum & raisin.  The avid home maker has introduced sunny orange brownies with a healthy splash of Grand Marnier at S$45 (box of six). An auspicious treat just for Chinese New Year.

WhatsApp Molten Brown at +65 9070 4443 to order.

Fork It

Headhunter by day, Jo Henson and her business partner started baking for paying friends and family. Soon, names that they didn’t recognise started filling the clientele list, and even the website crashed. That’s when they knew that Fork It wasn’t going to be just a temporary bridge to tide through the pandemic. That said, having fun is really what keeps them going.

For example, their Lunar New Year creation is an orange semolina cake called Tiok ToTo (S$68, six-inch). Freshly squeezed navel oranges and Cointreau intensify the citrus flavor, and white chocolate Valrhona gold ingots are dusted in gold powder. Plus, every cake comes with a toto ticket! Get your hands on their Dong Dong Chiang Fa Cai tart (S$58), a roselle custard and soju jelly creation, too.  Pre-orders open; self-collection and delivery available from Thursdays to Saturdays.

Order online here.

Berry Bar

Like many of us, Belle found herself in her home kitchen during Circuit Breaker. The then-recruiter tinkered around with cakes but ended up jazzing up plump, juicy strawberries with the likes of unicorns, chic ombre shimmers, and customised edible text. Now, the 25-year-old sole proprietor of the ACRA-registered business glams up to 18 boxes of the freshest produce from USA, Australia and Korea daily.

For the new year, look forward to white chocolate coating and splashes of red and gold to signify wealth and prosperity, as well as edible charms like koi and fortune cats. Prices start from S$68 for 12 large strawberries. The best part? Expect free delivery daily, except 12-13 February, where a S$10 delivery and self-collection surcharge applies.

The Bearded Baker

A rising star thanks to his hand laminated Croissant au Beurre Noisette (S$5) – yes, brown butter croissants! – professionally trained chef Lucien Ee started The Bearded Baker to supplement income. While we love his cheesy Pain aux Parmeggiano with Camembert (S$6), don’t miss his Lunar New Year Special, Shio Kombu Croissant with Crispy Chicken Floss (S$6), an Oriental twist on a pastry classic with a nostalgic childhood favourite to boot. Islandwide delivery available at S$10 per location or self-pickup for free from Outram Park.

Direct message The Bearded Baker to pre-order. 

Umami Boy

Will Chng is a trained chef who realised the merits of cooking at home – he gets to put out what he does best without worrying about sky-high rents and heavy labour costs. Armed with a sharpened knowledge in Chinese cuisine and skills after a stint in Taiwan, the HBB owner launched the Umami Boy mala sauce that’s so versatile, it’s a must-have in every kitchen.

Recently, he’s created two new sauces – a 100% plant-based mala sauce with a stronger aroma, and umami-rich Sichuan sesame peanut sauce built upon the original mala base. For S$48, get the two new sauces and Umami XO sauce for S$48, or his Carrot Cake (650g) bundled with the Umami XO sauce for the reunion dinner table. Pre-order now, before they run out.

WhatsApp Umami Boy at +65 9241 7528 to order. 

Jelebu Dry Laksa

After leaving her job as a chef at Le Binchotan, Renèe Tang Eyrn eked out a living by sharing her love for a unique kind of dry laksa. The 27-year-old intensifies the flavour and wafting aromas of her favorite noodles by taking time to soak and simmer them in her heavier sauce made with chilli, turmeric, galangal, coconut milk, candlenut, and more. Lobster completes this homemade dish at S$28 (half) or S$49 (whole).

Currently, the industrious female chef is helming a pop-up at Bistro Aseana, showing off premium seafood. Besides her signature, you’ll find the Aseana Propserity Lo Hei (S$128, four to six pax) available for ordering online. With at least an auspicious 88 sets for sale, expect whole Boston lobster, aburi Hokkaido scallops and ikura, topped with umeshu calamansi and rojak ginger flower.

Drunk Food

When the going gets tough, property agent Ivan Chee gets going on his favorite family dish. Since last July, Drunk Food has been well-received by local seafood diehards. Abalone, topshell, scallops and pacific clams are all soaked and dressed in his mother-in-law’s secret recipe. Mostly working alone, the 31-year-old dad offers four different spice levels upped by cut red chilli and lime.

For the Lunar New Year, Drunk Food has created a whopping platter of 20 scallops, 20 abalone, 20 pacific clams and 240g of seasoned jellyfish at S$268. Pre-order before 24 January for 15% off. Do note that S$15 surcharge applies to all CNY platter deliveries between 5-24 Feb 2021. Stocks are limited, so book early.

Lee’s Kimchi

Flying high during pre-COVID days as a flight steward with a leading international airline, Circuit Breaker left Nigel Lee grounded with valuable time in his hands. Aided by his wife, the 30-year-old kickstarted this home project – making one of his favourite things to eat – in April 2020. He spends hours juggling marketing, chef duties, social media enquiries, and a lot of the time delivering the bottles himself.

The duo managed to squirrel away time to create Lee’s Kimchi Reunion Stew (S$70, feeds four to six). Except 11-15 February, limited sets are available for the rest of the month. Expect signature 500g tub of kimchi steeped in gochugaru and fish sauce from Korea, a spicy seafood stock for the soup base and ingredients (scallops, luncheon meat, mushrooms, rice cakes, and more) packed separately. They cook in just five minutes and are good frozen for up to a month. Free delivery included!

Jill Sara has been practising public relations for more than ten years. Besides her day job, she started and manages two thriving facebook groups – Pasar United and Sweets United, where individuals who may have lost their income or got a significant paycut recently and pivoted to selling passed-down savoury recipes and trendy bakes.

90,000 Everything about business and life in Singapore

Dear readers of our most modern and most updated blog on life and business abroad! We have already written a lot about immigration to Singapore, doing business in Singapore, opening bank accounts in Singapore (private for individuals, corporate – both offshore and Singaporean companies), taxation in Singapore, immigration and business immigration in Singapore, taxes in Singapore, storage and purchase of gold in Singapore, treaties for the avoidance of double taxation and other relevant things that are related to the opportunities for developing your international business in Singapore and improving the quality of your life.

A company in Singapore is the key to a successful and respectable international business. Only in Singapore there is no corruption, there are the fastest conditions for licensing and only here you can get financing for a business in Singapore secured by ideas.

Citizenship of Singapore, unlike many countries of the world, can be so far only one single one. Singapore does not allow dual citizenship, so Russians in Singapore usually live in permanent residence status.

In this section you will find organized information about Singapore, which is available on the blog www.internationalwealth.info on one page. Systematization does not mean at all that we will stop writing about Singapore – not at all, because such innovations are taking place here, which cannot be kept silent! But this page will help us not to repeat ourselves, but to our readers who are interested in moving to Singapore or incorporating a business in Singapore – this page will help to find all the information of interest at once and in one place. Gradually, as our blog grows, such pages will appear about other relevant tax havens. We decided to start with the topic “Life and Business in Singapore” and with Singapore in particular because we know that Singapore is a bright present, a bright future and the most desirable country in the world at the moment for life, for hired work, and for business.

In the future, we intend to write more about real estate in Singapore, including the luxury real estate market in Singapore.

From the point of view of ease of doing business, the largest salaries in the world, the most business-oriented and progressive government in the world, Singapore is a real NUP of the EARTH in the second decade of the 21st century.I hope this page allows you to learn more about Singapore. If you still have questions after all our articles (and they must remain!), Then please write to [email protected]

I. Products of the offshore industry originally from Singapore and with “Singapore” elements

In this part, you will be able to find all international business products that include at least one Singaporean element, whether it is a Singapore-based business, company or firm, or a Singapore-based professional denomination, corporate bank account or Singapore virtual office.

Articles about our products and services in Singapore

II. Bilateral Double Tax Treaties and Free Trade Agreements between Singapore and other countries 90 014 90 019

In this section, we will try to show all aspects of the use of treaties for the avoidance of double taxation, which Singapore has signed with other countries. We will pay special attention to the possibilities to save on the reasonable and planned use of tax treaties with Singapore specifically for residents of various CIS countries.

Singapore Tax Treaties Articles

III. Business in Singapore

The articles of this part will be primarily interesting to read for those who want to organize a business in Singapore.

We cover all aspects of doing business in Singapore, from renting an office in Singapore, licensing a business to hiring Singapore residents at your office. The purpose of this section is to make business in Singapore understandable for Russian readers.

Register a company in Singapore online.Hospitality in Singapore

Singapore is one of the most convenient countries in the world for doing business due to simple and straightforward rules, moderate and flexible taxation with various tax incentives and benefits. This jurisdiction is the business and financial center of Asia, where the official business language is English, which simplifies the process of doing business. In Singapore, many of the world’s largest companies and banks have registered their firms remotely, including companies in the hospitality industry, thereby creating an excellent base for developing business ties in the country.Today we will talk not only about the sphere of the hospitality industry, but also about the very procedure for registering a company.

Before registering a company in Singapore we expand our knowledge of the hotel industry in the country online

Some facts about hotels in Singapore:

  1. In hotels of the highest and middle category of comfort breakfast, use of the pool and gym are included in the room rate.
  2. Hotels of the highest and middle category of comfort – the majority of hotels operating in Singapore.However, there are also budget hotels and even camping is possible in some areas of the parks and on the islands.
  3. Most of the budget hotels are located in the eastern part of Singapore.
  4. Singapore boutique hotels are a good alternative for those seeking uniqueness. They are usually completely different from hotels with a certain developed concept. Boutique hotels are small, privately owned hotels focused on niche markets, and their furnishings and services will highlight certain lifestyles, cultural values, art, etc.d.
  5. There are many luxury, five star hotels in Singapore. Most of them belong to large international hotel chains.
  6. The most expensive hotels are located near the main street – Orchard Road.

We hope this information will help you in choosing a place to open a hotel and determine your level of comfort. It is also worth noting that this area is one of the most popular for investments.

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is responsible for developing the hospitality industry, enhancing its functionality and regulating hotels in Singapore.This government agency works closely with other government agencies, hotel owners and operators to manage the development of a dynamic and innovative hotel sector. The Singapore Tourism Board works with the hospitality industry to develop initiatives to increase the value and attractiveness of hotel jobs, improve service quality, and drive continuous improvement to ensure the industry is sustainable over the long term.The Hotel Law and other regulations in the hospitality industry guarantee the protection of the interests of customers and hotel owners.

We mentioned the initiatives, now let’s talk about them in more detail, namely the grants and incentives developed by the Singapore Tourism Board to improve the competitiveness of the hotel business and its growth.

  1. Business Improvement Fund aims to foster the use of innovative technologies, redesign business models and processes in the tourism sector in order to increase productivity and competitiveness.All Singaporean registered businesses / companies that have submitted projects with a clear focus on tourism are eligible, namely Travel Companies developing and implementing capacity development measures and Technology Companies creating innovative products, technologies and services for the tourism business. Proposed projects must fall into one of the following categories : business process redesign, service improvement, new product / service development, financial management, human resources, brand development and marketing strategy.
  2. Business Improvement Fund Plus aims to encourage wider adoption of hotel productivity initiatives. It only applies to projects submitted before June 30, 2017. Singapore licensed hotels are eligible for any focus areas and Singapore registered technology companies developing technologies in any focus areas and at least one hotel has agreed to deploy the technology, and four hotels have expressed interest in adopting the technology once it is developed.

Attention: Registration of a company in the hotel industry is possible only after obtaining a license in Singapore. So, for renting 4 or more rooms for guests who will be staying less than 7 days, you need to obtain a license from the Hotels Licensing Board (HLB).

How to register a company in Singapore? Remotely!

After obtaining the license, you can proceed to the direct registration of the company.It takes place in several stages.

Stage one – preparation and collection of the necessary information and documentation:

  1. Preparation of denomination . Uniqueness in writing and sounding, absence of coincidences with already registered patents and brands is obligatory.
  2. Prepare structure . In Singapore, it is allowed to establish a company with only one shareholder and one director, but there is a requirement that one of the directors of the company is necessarily a resident of the country.It is also worth remembering that registers of directors and shareholders are open, therefore, if in the case of shareholder , nominee service is not as necessary as in the case of a local director. However, when obtaining a visa to Singapore, you yourself can act as a local director. Therefore, at the stage of drawing up the structure, you need to clearly decide for yourself whether you need a nominee service. There are other requirements for directors: 1 – over 18 years old; 2 – no criminal record; 3 – not bankrupt. There are no residency requirements for shareholders, but there is a limit on the maximum number, namely, no more than 50 persons, but for the use of tax benefits and incentives, Offshore Pro Group recommends limiting it to 20.
  3. Determine the size of the authorized capital of , both in monetary terms and in the number of shares and their par value.
  4. Preparation of documentation . Individuals (shareholder, director, beneficiary) need a notarized copy of the passport and a document translated into English – proof of address. For corporate shareholders, notarized copies of all corporate documents will be required.

Stage two – registration of the application. To start the process of registering a company, you just need to submit an application, namely, send a letter to [email protected] It is imperative to attach a package of documentation and prepared information on the company to the letter (stage one). This is necessary for preliminary verification of documents and company name. If there are no comments on the documentation and the name, an invoice is issued for the payment of the service package. Payment can be made at a bank branch, or through WebMoney and WesternUnion services.

Stage three – registration of a company in Singapore remotely .This stage begins after receiving funds on the invoice and usually takes no more than five working days. It consists of two steps: 1 – name approval; 2 – entry of the company into the Singapore Companies Register. Upon completion of registration, you will be sent a package of corporate documents and stamps.

Bank account for a company in Singapore

A full-fledged business is impossible without a bank account. It can be a foreign account that can significantly reduce the level of tax deductions due to a quasi-territorial principle, or a local account for mutual settlements with partners and clients from Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.

Banking institutions that open accounts for non-residents can be conditionally divided into 2 groups:

  1. Banks that open a corporate account remotely, which allows, without leaving their country, not only to open a company remotely, but also a bank account.
  2. Banks that require a personal meeting when opening a corporate account. Therefore, departure to the country where the banking institution is located is necessary.

Opening an account for a Singapore company will not be difficult in any jurisdiction due to the high image of the jurisdiction and the high degree of trust in the financial center of Asia.Among the variety of proposals, you must first determine the goals and objectives of the account and the requirements for jurisdiction, based on this information, choose the country of the bank account and the bank itself will be much easier. If you need the help of a qualified professional, contact the Offshore Pro Group. Our experts will not only advise you on all the issues that have arisen, but will also select a banking institution and help you open an account with it.

Offshore Pro Group has prepared for you service packages that include opening a corporate account remotely.Let us remind you that a foreign bank account allows you not to pay taxes on profits transferred to it. Here are some of them:

Company in Singapore with a bank account in Latvia with Baltikums Bank

Company in Singapore with an account in Vanuatu at Pacific Private Bank

Incorporation of a company in Singapore with an account in Saint Lucia with BOSLIL Bank

Incorporation of a company in Singapore with an account with Norvik Banka

SP – Brief information

  • In Singapore, an individual entrepreneur is not an independent legal entity, therefore, an individual entrepreneur is inseparable from its owner (owner).The business owner is personally liable for all obligations arising in the course of doing business.
  • Any company registered in Singapore, or an individual who has reached the age of 18, has the right to register an individual entrepreneur.
  • An individual entrepreneur must have at least one manager who is an individual who is at least 21 years of age and is a resident of Singapore – a citizen (citizen) of Singapore or its permanent resident (resident). In most cases, this role is played by the owner (proprietor) himself.
  • A local address in Singapore must be provided as the sole proprietorship address. Under the Home Office program, dwellings can be listed as the actual address of the sole proprietor, but the sole proprietor must obtain written approval from the Housing and Development Board (HDB) (if the property is owned by the Housing and Development Board) or from the City Department of Building (URA) (in the case of private property) to use their premises (owned or rented) as a home office.
  • Before proceeding with the IP registration procedure, citizens or permanent residents of Singapore registering an IP must ensure that there are sufficient funds in Medisave accounts.
  • The profit of an individual entrepreneur is considered as the income of an individual who owns an individual entrepreneur, therefore it is subject to taxation at the same rate as the personal income of the population, and if the owner of the individual entrepreneur is a private limited liability company, then the profit is subject to taxation at the rate of corporate income tax.
  • Since an individual entrepreneur in Singapore is not a legal entity, another commercial company cannot be registered with it.
  • SP is obliged to indicate its registration number on all letterheads, invoices, invoices and other documents used to conduct business.
  • The sole proprietor is not required to audit their accounts or submit a key performance report to the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), as any profits of the sole proprietorship are taxed as personal income.
  • Raising funds or expanding a business as an individual entrepreneur will be limited, as investors are hesitant about doing business with structures other than legal entities.
  • Information about any changes in the IE details must be provided to the head of the registry within 14 days from the date these changes were made
  • The registration of an individual entrepreneur in Singapore must be renewed annually.

For the attention of foreign citizens

In practical terms, an individual entrepreneur is not a suitable option for foreign citizens.Instead, professionals from foreign companies should set up a private limited liability company. For more information, see the Singapore Company Incorporation Guide.

Required documents and registration procedure

To register an individual entrepreneur in Singapore, the following documents (information) are required:

  • Assumed name IE
  • Description of core activities
  • Local actual address of the prospective individual entrepreneur
  • Copy of Singapore-issued document identifying owner
  • Local address of residence of an individual entrepreneur
  • Declaration of Conformity and Certificate of No Restriction of Rights The registration procedure is

a) name reservation; and

b) registration of individual entrepreneurs.

The registration procedure is computerized and takes a minimum of time. An individual entrepreneur can be registered in one day, provided that all documents are submitted properly with all the necessary certifying signatures. However, if the name or nature of the company requires contact with other authorities, it may take several weeks. Companies that may require registration with the competent authorities include companies providing financial services, educational services, media services, etc.d.

To increase the likelihood of quick agreement on the name of the IP, make sure that it is:

  • does not match or closely resemble the name of an existing local company or business
  • does not infringe on trademarks or copyrights
  • is not offensive
  • is no longer reserved.

ACRA-issued documents

After filing an application for registration of an individual entrepreneur and provided that all documents are in order, the registrar will send an email notification confirming the successful registration of the individual entrepreneur and its registration number.By default, the Government of Singapore no longer issues a paper version of the Certificate of Incorporation as the electronic version is considered valid and is accepted in Singapore.

After you receive an email notification confirming the successful registration of the sole proprietor, you can create a business profile for your new Singapore sole proprietor, which will contain important information about his registration. Documents required to open a bank account in Singapore, sign an office lease agreement, obtain working telephone lines, etc.are the original notification of the creation of the IP, sent by e-mail, and the business profile of the IP.

Bank account opening

After registering an individual entrepreneur in Singapore, you can open a bank account in any of several international, foreign and local banks in Singapore. An individual entrepreneur can open separate accounts for different currencies or one multicurrency account. The procedure for opening an account in each bank is different, but most banks require the personal presence of the IP owner when opening an account.Usually the following documents are required:

  • Application for opening an account
  • Copy of Singapore-issued Owner’s ID
  • Current printout of business profile SP
  • Minimum deposit (amount depends on the bank) in cash or by check

Benefits of SP

1. Ease of creation. It is the easiest and least expensive structure to set up a company.

2. Control by the owner.As the sole owner, you have complete control over all the affairs of the company, including decision making.

3. Lack of distribution of profits. You get all the income from the sole proprietorship.

4. Ease of IP closure. It is easier, faster and cheaper to close an individual entrepreneur than to liquidate a company of any other form.

5. Minimum Compliance Requirements. You are released from the obligation to submit annual reports. It is only required to renew the registration every year.

Disadvantages of SP

1. It is not an independent legal entity. You are inseparable from your IP. This makes you financially and legally responsible for all debts and claims brought against him.

2. Unlimited liability. Creditors can file a claim against you for the arisen debts, and they can also receive a writ of execution from the court on the foreclosure of your personal assets, including property.

3. No tax breaks or incentives.The amount of taxes is determined at the rate of personal income tax. You are not eligible for special tax incentives for private limited companies.

4. Limited capital. Capital is limited by your personal finances and the profits generated by your IE. Thus, business expansion is limited and difficult.

5. Lack of continuous succession.

6. Low public rating. This form is the least preferable for serious organizations, since no one wants to give you loans for large amounts.It will also be difficult to attract highly qualified employees or top managers, usually looking for work in companies with a more highly developed structure, such as private limited liability companies.

7. Sale (transfer) of the entire company or part of it: the business can only be transferred by selling the assets of the individual entrepreneur.

Output

IE – the basic and simple version of the company, suitable for organizations that have no risks or have minor risks. This option of the organization fully complies with the legal requirements for the registration of all types of activities conducted on an ongoing basis with the aim of making a profit.Freedom from the formalities of compliance and unlimited powers of the owner are an advantage, but at the same time a factor limiting the potential growth and development of the company. Due to unlimited liability, businessmen are not recommended to open an IP. Instead, set up a private limited company in Singapore .

“Everything here is subordinated to the ideas of business”: a diary of an entrepreneur from a business tour of Singapore

From the very first day we had a busy schedule. We had three visits to the offices of the largest Asian players.

First meeting – from Litmus PR . Company founder Patrick moved to Singapore from Canada 25 years ago.Immediately about what amazed me: a small team of 5 people makes the largest PR projects for the entire Asian startup market. In each region, Litmus has a partner agency that works on their projects locally. An interesting business model, there is something to think about.

Discussed the specifics of working in the Russian and Asian markets. This is not to say that PR technologies are somehow very different, although, of course, there are different principles of interaction with journalists everywhere. Litmus PR has long stopped sending press releases, instead agency comes up with interesting news stories for clients, which are picked up by the industry media.The main expertise of this agency is the formation of trust and the search for strategic partners.

Next destination is Ence Marketing. The agency has a wonderful, so comfortable office (employees wear slippers!) That the team does not want to leave it. The management had to limit the working day to 18:00. If you want to continue working, work from home. What’s interesting is that each employee has the opportunity not to visit the office at all, but … it is impossible to resist! In general, overtime in Singapore is discouraged – it strives for a balance of work and personal life.The office itself is a bright and spacious open space, but it does not give the impression of an open and noisy place.

There are 20 people in the team, they serve most of the large companies in Singapore. Among their clients is the Russian “Kaspersky Lab”, which actively works with Asian markets. According to the guys, new clients come to them themselves, impressed by the agency’s projects they saw.

In the Ence Marketing office we met one of their clients, a startup Fuzzie: it is a b2b platform for finding corporate discounts.We talked with its founder, Farhan Nur, and right in the office began to figure out the financial model and prospects for Fuzzie in Russia. This is how an unexpected acquaintance can turn into a business! In Singapore, this happens all the time, this city was created for business, its growth and development. We decided to continue the conversation at dinner, Farhan took us to the best Singaporean burger Potato Head (and although I’m not a fan, the burgers are really excellent there). By the way, work on our joint project with Fuzzie is already underway, and perhaps in the near future we will launch the service in Russia.Special thanks to the VTB team for this – the business tour was, indeed, a business tour! From the very first day, we communicated with exactly those people with whom I am ready to do projects today. It is immediately evident that the approach is professional.
