Enhancing Corporate Transparency – More business information released for free public access
Posted on 13 July, 2017
To further enhance corporate transparency in Singapore, ACRA is releasing more business information for public to access freely.
Public can refer to ACRA’s free Entity Search function in the BizFile+ portal now to find out the entity’s business activity (SSIC), filing history and validity of the registered business address. ACRA plans to release even more information for public to freely access later this year.
It is therefore crucial for company to engage competence accountant and company secretary to ensure all its compliance matters are met in an efficient and timely manner.
From 2 June 2017 all newly registered/incorporated entities will be given a free copy of their Business Profile upon successful registration/incorporation.
Existing business entities registered with ACRA will also receive a free copy of their Business Profile after successfully renewing their business registration, or filing their Annual Returns or Annual Declarations.
