What You Should Consider Before You Register A Singapore Company

What You Should Consider Before You Register A Singapore Company
Singapore is one of the fastest growing countries in Asia in terms of popularity in the business world. More importantly, the benefits of setting up your own company in Singapore are seamless. But don’t get too excited yet, there are some vital aspects of the business that you need to take note before starting up your own company in Singapore, they are as follows;

- Company Name. Before your company could be incorporated, you must have a company name that should have been approved by the proper authorities.

- Shareholders. A minimum of 1 and a maximum of 50 shareholders are required for a Singapore company. A director and shareholder can hold such position at the same time. The shareholder can be a person or another legal entity such as another company or trust.

- Paid-up Capital.
In order for a Singapore company to be registered, it must have a minimum paid-up capital of S$ 1. This paid-up capital (also known as share capital) may be increased anytime after the incorporation of the company.

- Directors. Your company must have at least one resident director. This requirement is mandatory. A resident is defined to be a Singapore Citizen, a Singaporean Permanent Resident, or a person who has been issued an Entrepass, Employment Pass, or Dependent Pass. There is no limit as to the maximum number of directors, whether local or foreign. Directors must be at least 18 years of age and must not be bankrupt or convicted for any malpractice in the past. There is no requirement for the directors to also be shareholders, thus, non-shareholders can be appointed directors.

- Company Secretary.

Within 6 months of its incorporation, a company must appoint a qualified company secretary. In case of a sole director/shareholder, the same person cannot act as the company secretary. The company secretary must be a natural person and must be a resident of Singapore.

- Registered Address. A local Singapore address must be provided as your company’s registered address in order for your company to be registered. This registered address must be a physical address (can be either a residential or commercial address) thus a PO Box is not a qualified registered address.

Taxation. Attractive tax exemptions and incentives await every Singapore registered company. For the first S$ 300,000 annual profits, your company needs to pay less than 9% and a flat rate of 17% flat thereafter. There is no capital gains or dividend tax in Singapore. These excellent tax benefits in Singapore are one of the key reasons why investors from around the world prefer to form a company in Singapore.

All of the above-mentioned concepts are basic details that will serve as your guideline in starting to have your own company incorporated in Singapore.



Saturday, October 14, 2017 Review - Reserve Your Url Before It's Too Late! Review - Reserve Your Url Before It's Too Late!
About.Me is the latest marketing concept from the San Francisco based company who have designed a way for users and members to create their own "Splash Page." The company has created a free, super high quality, one page site that contains built in social networking links to your personal web presence throughout all of your accounts. A.J. Meijer of "Inside Acting Podcast" has referred to it as a 'Digital Postcard', a description I really like. Basically, this is a dynamic profile landing page that points users to your content around the web. The group of developers wanted to create an easy way to organize and centrally locate all of one's social profile pages that are scattered around the internet from places liked Linked In and Twitter to Facebook, Blogs, and personal websites.

Now those of us who are interested in marketing on the web and all things technological are always up for another promotional outlet, interface, and more personalized web presence. About.Me is no exception to the internet junkie's narcissistic fix. Now this new social media interface is definitely for everyone - as long as you are over 13 years old - and is not a social networking site. It is simply a landing page where you can garner more internet presence. You don't have to be a professional networker or marketer to enjoy this new media interface, as I would recommend any business owner or public figure across all industries to seriously consider reserving your URL now before it's too late.

What Do You Mean Reserve?

About.Me is currently in 'Private Beta' stage and the company is currently sending out daily invites. The software is "feature complete" and this basically means that they are in a prototype stage where they are testing the impact and usability of the software. All you have to do is to go to their website About.Me, enter your email and choose your About.Me URL (i.e. About.Me/PaulHMoore). Shortly afterwards you will receive an email confirmation that will let you know that you have successfully reserved your username with their pre-registration. Once the company publicly launches you will receive another email asking you to finish the registration process for your page.

"The Software Club"

This whole process has reminded me of those times when all you want to do is enter the club and be a part of the scene. Direct, exclusive access to the hip, cool, and trendy place to be. Where everyone goes to see and be seen. Where a bottle of Vodka goes for $ 300 and the misfits wait outside in long lines monitored by men with muscles and suits with power, while the streams of Barbies and their Ken's waltz right in to add fuel to your sidelined fire. This 'Private Beta Stage Club' has people waiting for months before access is finally granted to enter - all of which, I assume, is based on your own personal public value. The company is backed by some major Venture Capital Firms and private Angel investors including: True Ventures, Radar Partners, Freestyle Capital, Scott Kurnit, AOL Ventures, David Mahoney, Founder Collective, & Ron Conway.

Track Your Visitors

About.Me also offers the user a Personal Analytics Dashboard, which will allow you to understand how many people see your profile, where they're coming from and what they do on your page. There are blog plugins that have similar functions, but About.Me has it all built in for you! So should you get an account? Why not? The pages look great and it will offer you a professional sounding URL without having to employ any other domain 'masking', 'forwarding', or URL 'Bit crunching.' Most of us have Facebook profile pages, but your URL is too long to be used on any business card (even after shortening the URL through But how does About.Me/PaulHMoore sound? Not bad. In this author's review I believe About.Me will most likely create a large internet 'Splash.' This About.Me Review says 'reserve your URL name before it's too late!'

Three Things You Must Do Before You Submit to Article Directories

Three Things You Must Do Before You Submit to Article Directories

Article writing and publications are becoming very popular, so it is important for those who write and those who do not write, to become more creative in their thinking and writing.  There are many ways for writers to get their articles noticed and the process is very easy.  First we want to take a look at some of the mistakes that people make when trying to submit to article directories.

1.   There are at least three important benefits to why you are promoting your articles. You are generating leads, you are the top in that niche, and you are trying to promote your product. Most people write articles to inform the audience, but sometimes articles are not written with this in mind.  If the articles are not written specifically to inform the audience, then no one will be interested in reading the material.  You need to understand and know how to promote in order to get people interested in your article enough to read it.  The best way to do this is to write good content.

2.   The second is when you fail to get the most out of the article market by promoting.  Now you know that if your content is good, then you can get more visitors to your site and you can get a better rating when your article searches better.  Specific keywords are used in articles to make them more searchable.  The more keyword rich your article is, the higher the search rating and the more that it will come up in searches.  Do not overuse the keywords in the articles.  Sometimes when you try to use the keywords more than necessary, it tends to make the article sound robotic and uninteresting.  It is not all about how many people search for your article, but the quality of your content work.  That is what makes people want to read the article and will come back to read more of what you have written.

3.   Third, you do not want to write content that will not help the reader.  Sometimes writers are much more focused on getting people to their site, they forget about what is important.  A lot of directories have specific guidelines that you must follow when trying to submit, and they most certainly do not accept just anything. The directories want to share written articles with other people, but the article must be written very well.  You should write the kind of articles that publishers will want to share.  Good content consists of well written content that is without mistakes.  Also in order to write good content, you must research what you are writing about so that you will sound like you know what you are talking about.  Another way is to hire a writer that can write good content for you.

The choice is yours.  You can just write articles just to get people to click on your link, or you can do it the right way and write quality content that everyone wants to read and share.  When you learn the difference, then you will be able to write and submit great articles with quality content.

Before You Submit to Article Directories, Remember These Things

Before You Submit to Article Directories, Remember These Things

Article directors are a great way to advertise for free online, create an online presence and drive traffic to your website. However, if you're not a professional writer, writing these articles can be a difficult task. Modern technology has brought us the popularity of information based marketing techniques.

This is why we are seeing more and more people take advantage of the benefits of article directories. If you've decided to do this for yourself, there are some important things you need to know. There's more to the process than just writing the articles and you need to be aware of these points before you submit a single article.

There are some very common mistakes that many people make when they first begin writing for and submitting to article directories. If you can become aware of these mistakes and then avoid them for yourself, you will have more success with your article marketing through article directories.

First it's important not to confuse the reason to promote the articles with the reason to write them. You may have many reasons for promoting them such as to signify your brand name, drive traffic to your site, generate leads or create an online presence for yourself.

However, this is not the same as your reason for writing the articles. You want to write so that people want to read. If no one wants to read your articles, they will not serve their purpose when you do promote them. Your writing should be written for the reader and with the purpose to inform them of something.

When writing, remember this and remember what your articles are meant to inform. If not, no one will be interested in reading what you write. Once you've learned to write great articles, you should also be sure you learn how to get the maximum potential and promotional opportunities from each article.

Once you complete these challenges, you will be ready to submit to article directories and get the most from each and every article you write. Find out today how you can start making your articles work for you and your business.
