Guide to Choosing Company Secretarial Service that suits you the most
We acknowledge that different businesses have varying needs in relation to their corporate secretarial requirements.
Companies that need basic secretarial functions
Similar to ContactOne, most of the other leading secretarial firms provide basic secretarial functions to a large portion of companies in Singapore. In fact, we are of the opinion that most companies will suffice with this form of secretarial service. Under this arrangement, should you require additional secretarial services, only then will you be billed for the ad-hoc services rendered.
Service providers may bill secretarial fees on a monthly basis or annual basis. We are fairly sure that our annual secretarial fees have consistently been one of the lowest in the market today amongst leading service providers. If you belong to this class of entrepreneurs, our Company Secretary Basic Package will be best suited for you.
Companies that need basic secretarial and accounting functions
ACRA filing constitutes only one out of TWO annual obligations for every Singapore Company. For a total peace of mind in meeting both your ACRA and IRAS obligations, you should consider our Company Secretary All In One Package that provides support for both ACRA and IRAS filings.
This plan is most suited for Companies that are capable of doing in-house bookkeeping or transaction recording.
Companies that need additional expert services
There are also companies that would prefer to appoint legal practitioners eg lawyers specializing in certain fields, to be their company secretary. The reason may be due to the fact that the company may need to deal with complicated corporate structuring or require legal expertise in the related field of the legal practitioner. In this aspect, value can be created as the secretary is somebody who can provide expert advice to you. This arrangement may chalk up thousands in terms of secretarial and professional fees. If you fall into this category, we will strongly encourage you to procure a suitable legal practitioner and consider the cost versus benefits of the arrangement. Alternatively, you may consider our Company Secretary Basic Package to meet you basic ACRA needs and engage a separate legal practitioner for advisory purposes.
