Employment Law

Is it obligatory for a Singapore Company to have employees in Singapore?

Is hiring atleast one employee mandatory for a Singapore Registered Company? Any specific rules?


No, a Singapore Company doesn't need to have employees in Singapore.

Once you have incorporated the company here, you may run your operations from elsewhere.

However, you need to make sure you do have a local Director and Company Secretary.
