Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) regulates businesses, public accountants, and corporations in Singapore to ensure that these entities comply with state laws. Moreover, ACRA is tasked to provide the public with access to these data and documents to ensure transparency and data sharing among companies, organizations, and individuals.
Both public organizations and private individuals can assess the profiles of the companies registered with ACRA to know more about their operations, especially if they are interested in investing in, partnering with, or taking over these companies. Furthermore, researchers and developers can use ACRA’s data to administer relevant research about business, undertake groundbreaking business initiatives, and eventually improve business efficiency.
Information about a company, such as its top management, employees, and capital, can all be easily accessed by everyone.
The creation of BizFile in 2004 paved the way for a fast, convenient, and organized communication between businesses and the government. Through ACRA’s BizFile website or mobile app, anyone can learn more about a company in an instant. With its Application Programming Interface (API), ACRA can also allow the public to access a company’s gross wealth.
