Singapore offers the ideal environment for company incorporation
and branch office expansions. In spite of the current economic
weaknesses exhibited by other countries, the
Singapore economy continues to show a great deal of strength as
we enter 2012. A recent study affirmed what many companies already
know – Singapore maintains its firm grip on the top
position in a ranking of the world's best business
The World Bank survey rated
leading world economies on a number of criteria, from the ease of
starting a business, to tax and contributions burden on a medium
size firm. Singapore ranked first for the quality of its overall
business environment, and came in fourth place for its taxation
policies. Singapore businesses pay an overall tax rate that places
it among the lowest for any world economy. Even more impressive,
Singapore businesses spend only 84 hours each year preparing taxes,
far less than the number of hours spent by other countries,
including those in the East Asia and Pacific regions.
That's why business owners, entrepreneurs and CEOs are
placing Singapore at the top of the list when deciding where to
expand their businesses globally.
Setting up a Singapore company or
