made easy.

Why Singapore?

Singapore is a prime destination for businesses and investors. It boasts excellent connectivity, a robust economy at the forefront of innovation. Singapore's government is friendly and pro-business. The legal and judicial system is transparent and independent. Corporate governance is ingrained in the business culture, and the country is well-known for its robust anti-corruption laws. There is no capital gains tax, dividends tax, estate tax or inheritance tax.

Singapore’s vibrant transportation, business and financial services sectors also help power the economy. Singapore's economy has been ranked as the most open in the world, 7th least corrupt, most pro-business, low tax rates (14.2% of GDP) and has the third highest per-capita GDP in the world in terms of PPP.

Currently, the government is attempting to restructure Singapore’s economy by weaning its dependence on foreign labor, addressing weak productivity growth and increasing Singaporean wages. Singapore has attracted major investments in advanced manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology production and will continue efforts to strengthen its position as Southeast Asia's leading financial and technology hub.

Reasons to do business in Singapore include:

  • A pro-business, open economy
  • Excellent infrastructure and connectivity
  • Efficient business environment
