Branch Registration

Are there restrictions on what type of name I can use for my Singapore branch office?

Yes, there are restrictions on a branch office’s name put by Companies Act. The branch office’s name must be the same as the name of the parent company. You must also need ACRA’s (Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority’s) approval for the name.

The conditions in which ACRA rejects a business name are:

  • An existing business name is identical to it.
  • The name is undesirable.
  • The name or trademark is quite similar to the name of a famous brand like Coca Cola and Temasek.
