From 1 Oct 2019, a business entity that appoints a Registered Filing Agent (RFA) 1 to transact with AGRA in BizFile+, ACRA’s on-line business filing and information portal, will receive a notification letter from AGRA on the appointment of the RFA. If you receive such a notification letter, no action is required on your part if the appointment of the RFA is in order.
To enhance transparency and provide convenience to business entities in keeping track of the RFA they have appointed, all position holders, including officer, partner or owner of the business entity, can now login to BizFile+ portal at www.bizfile.gov.sg with their CorpPass to view information on the RFA or remove the RFA via the dashboard in BizFile+. Once the RFA is removed, the RFA will not be able to perform any BizFile+ transactions on your behalf.
