Can there be reasons for a delay in name reservation by ACRA?

Why name referral may happens in case of a Singapore Company Registration?


There is a simple process to be carried out before you register a company name in Singapore. You must also take care of a few important factors before proposing a company name to ACRA.

  • The proposed company name must be approved by ACRA before you register it.
  • Make sure that it is well researched and unique as ACRA will reject it if it is similar to any other company’s name that is already registered.
  • They may also randomly carry out a due diligence exercise.
  • If the proposed company name had words such as the bank, insurance, and education, there are more regulations. And you would require permission from other government authorities.

It is better to choose a name with 2/3 words in it for ease of approval. For example, if you select name to be “Solar PTE Ltd”, then there are high chances a similar name exists. So, in this case, it is better to try name like “Solar Consulting Services Pte Ltd”
