What is Singpass?


What is Singpass?

Singpass is a password tool that allows users to connect and transact with government agencies in Singapore. Singpass is issued to all the residents of Singapore by the government. The login id for Singapass is generally the NRIC of the citizen or the permanent resident. Singapass is also issued to employees and dependent pass holders in Singapore.

Singpass also has 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) for government e-transactions involving sensitive data. With 2FA, users are required to enter a One-Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS, or generated through a OneKey token along with their SingPass username and password.

A Singpass account is required when registering a company online with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA). The registration is done through ACRA’s online filing and information retrieval system, BizFile. Only an individual with a SingPass account can carry out a transaction via BizFile. If you are a foreign resident person and want to register your company in Singapore then you must use a professional firm like ours to do the lodgment.

Please note that your friend or relative who resides in Singapore, will not be able to incorporate a company on your behalf. Even if they can create a company for themselves, they can not add foreign nationals in a company setup. Only professional firms like ours are authorized to do this.

Singpass is typically used on following government services websites :

  • Accounting and corporate Registration Authority of Singapore (ACRA)
  • Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS)
  • Business Licensing system
  • Central Provident Fund Board (CPF)
