Why Early-Stage Foreign Startups Should
Incorporate in Singapore

Because your investors care.

As an epicenter for finance and international trade, this makes Singapore an attractive investment base for investors worldwide looking at emerging markets for growth.

A tax haven for startups.

Businesses in Singapore can enjoy the lowest corporate tax rate in all of SEA at 17%, along with favourable tax policies and Free Trade Agreements (FTAs).

No limitations on foreign ownership.

With zero restrictions on foreign individual or corporate shareholding, foreign directors can own 100% of company stocks without the need for local partners.

Added layer of credibility.

Ranked #1 for best IP protection and regime in
the and World Trademark Review IP Office Innovation Ranking 2020.

Ease of doing business.

Consistently ranked #1 on World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business survey yearly due to its efficient and bureaucracy-free regulatory frameworks.

Strategic geographic location.

A gateway to the Asia Pacific market and beyond due to its high connectivity, making it an excellent base for regional and global expansion.

Testimonials from trusted VCs

An understated value of incorporating in Singapore are the network effects from having that trusted identity as a Singapore company, with many of the region’s investors and enterprise customers having their headquarters or Asia offices in Singapore. Given the inherent challenges of navigating Southeast Asia, the easier it is for investors and customers to trust and transact with you, the better. Singapore is the place for that, and Aspire is the platform to get started with their full-stack of services for startups from incorporation to revenue management.

Aspire Success Stories

With Aspire, you don’t need separate bank accounts, credit cards, invoicing,
and expense software. Scale faster with everything in one place.

I came across Aspire on a critical moment when we had to receive our long awaited Series-A proceed, while in the same day we found out that we had problem with our
conventional bank account. To my surprise, the Aspire account opening process was so easy and super fast. We had the documents filled ( along the process, Aspire’s
people were there to guide us on every step) and had the account opened and ready the following day! It was life saving experience for our company. Thanks a lot Aspire!

We use Aspire Advance Card to pay for software subscriptions and other one time purchases. These cards can be issued to individuals in the different departments for ease of tracking and control. Adding team members instantly. Ease-of-use, good exchange rates are Aspire strength.
We are also using the SGD and USD account for payroll, and also miscellaneous payments to vendors.

Noni SC Lim
Finance Director of Nimbly Technologies

The speed of the Aspire team is phenomenal. We were surprised that Aspire only took 24 hours and we were able to start our expansion journey in Singapore within no time. They are clear regarding document requirements and transparent regarding the account opening process. The dashboard provided to startups is seamless. The multicurrency account is a golden arrow. Within hours of opening an account, we were able to set up an SGD and USD account. This has helped us to manage our operational expenses in Singapore and receive investments from global VCs simultaneously. Aspire is the best business account for startups looking to go global.
