Do I need a Nominee Director?

Yes, a local director, who is a resident of Singapore (either a Singapore citizen or Permanent Resident), must be appointed before submitting your company registration application. However, as a foreigner, you can appoint a nominee director to fulfill this requirement.

For foreigners establishing a company in Singapore, being physically present at all times might be impractical. The Singapore government requires a contact person and someone accountable in case of irresponsible corporate behavior. The rule mandating a Nominee Director ensures that foreign company owners cannot easily abandon their responsibilities.

Frequently asked questions

Do the Nominee Director will be involved with the company operations?

No, typically a Nominee Director is not actively involved in the day-to-day operations or management of the company. Their role is often limited to meeting statutory requirements and fulfilling the legal obligation of having a local director.

What is the risk of hiring a Nominee Director?

The Singapore Companies Act doesn't distinguish between a regular and a nominee director. Thus, by regulation Nominee Directors have decision-making powers, but certain matters require shareholder approval. To minimize risk, consider engaging a trusted company like WealthBridge for Nominee Director services. You can work with us to contractually limit the powers of a nominee director through a service agreement. Additionally, you can appoint non-resident executive directors to manage and oversee company affairs for added control.

What is a Nominee Director agreement and what does it cover?

A Nominee Director service agreement outlines terms for a service provider supplying a nominee director to a company. It covers services, payment terms, replacement options, liabilities, confidentiality, compliance, and termination procedures, ensuring clarity in the relationship between the company and the service provider.

What are the risks a Nominee Director would face?

A Nominee Director in Singapore can be held accountable for the company's actions if they breach fiduciary duties or neglect their legal obligations. Therefore it is crucial to ensure the Nominee Director understands their responsibilities and to choose a trustworthy provider like WealthBridge for Nominee Director services.

For how long do I need the service of a nominee director?

Foreigners incorporating a company in Singapore and planning to relocate can seek an Employment Pass (EP). Once granted, you can designate yourself as the 'local' director. Alternatively, you may opt for our Nominee Director services while going through the EP application process, which typically takes about 6 months.

What are the fiduciary duties of nominee directors?

Nominee directors are bound by fiduciary duties outlined in the Companies Act. They must act in the company's best interests, avoid conflicts of interest, and disclose personal interests. Additionally, they are required to act honestly, exercise due care and diligence, avoid unauthorized personal gains, and disclose involvement in company transactions.

Can a Nominee Director also be a shareholder of the company?

Yes, a Nominee Director has the option to also function as a shareholder in the company. The Companies Act provides flexibility in company structuring, enabling individuals to assume various roles concurrently. Nevertheless, it is crucial to ensure that the Nominee Director prioritizes the company's best interests, rather than exclusively serving the interests of the represented shareholder.

What is the difference between a Nominee Director and a Nominee Shareholder?

A Nominee Director is appointed for regulatory compliance and may not actively participate in decision-making. A Nominee Shareholder holds shares on behalf of the beneficial owner for privacy and compliance reasons. The director is related to management, while the shareholder pertains to ownership.

Can a nominee director take part in opening corporate bank accounts?

A Nominee Director can help with opening a corporate bank account but is not allowed to sign any of the company's bank documents. Their role is limited to assistance in the account setup. Their involvement in financial matters beyond the account setup is subject to the specific terms outlined in legal agreements or corporate governance documents.

Can the foreign director be the Nominee Director?

No, as mandated by the Companies Act, every company is required to have at least one local director. This person must be a resident of Singapore, including Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents, or foreigners holding an Employment Pass or EntrePass.

What are the requirements to be a Nominee Director?

The Nominee Director must reside in Singapore, being either a Singapore Citizen, Permanent Resident, or a foreigner with a valid employment pass or entrepreneur pass. They must be at least 18 years old, mentally sound, and free from disqualification, including any history of fraud, bankruptcy, or regulatory disqualification.

Can I simply appoint a local Singapore business associate or employee as Nominee Director?

Yes, you can do so if they meet the requirements set by ACRA. However, it is important to point out that despite the Nominee status, your local associate or employee will still need to sign the company’s year-end reports as the Local Director. This would mean disclosing sensitive information such as the profit and loss statements, shareholding changes, and changes in business dealings. That's why, working with a Nominee Director service provider like WealthBridge is a better option to avoid possible conflicts of interest.
