Nominee Director: Easy Startup In Singapore

The Nominee Director (ND) plays a non-executive role in the companies. The Companies Act of Singapore states the need for a nominee director to hold the responsibilities in critical situations if the executive director is not available. For instance, if a company breaches any law or doesn’t pay its taxes, steals money from clients, etc. 

There are certain criteria to be accepted as a nominee director in Singapore. The ND must be a citizen or a permanent resident of Singapore and should have a permanent address in Singapore. Furthermore, the ND can be an EntrePass holder, Dependent’s Pass holder, or Employment Pass holder and must be residing in Singapore for a long time.

Responsibilities of a Nominee Director

You need a competent nominee director for a successful startup in Singapore. A competent ND is familiar with all the rules and regulations that a company and its employees need to follow. They fulfil the laws of Singapore Company Acts and reassure the requirements of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA). 

NDs are in charge of ensuring the maintenance of statutory books of the corporation accurately. They are responsible for the regulatory filings, maintenance of annual accounts, correct records of accounting, etc. Furthermore, they may need to take part in meetings with the shareholders as per the law. Nominee directors need to carry out their directory duties with integrity and honesty. These all are the reasons your company benefits from the right nominee director services.

Besides, nominee directors are prohibited to take part in the management of your business. They can’t participate in policy meetings or indulge in any negotiations on behalf of your company. There are executive directors to operate your business corporation.
