When registering a Singapore company, one of the basic preliminary requirements is the company name. This is considered by entrepreneurs as one of their basic concerns.
Through the company name, customers are immediately informed of the business purpose as the name describes the nature of the business. There are also instances that the name provides the business a personal touch by associating it with the business owner’s name.
The retail industry particularly, needs a smart name as the company niche’s reputation is built around its name, making it a brand that consumers refer to when making a choice.
Singapore rules that a proposed company name does not resemble any other companies established and those which are already reserved with ACRA under the Companies Act, Partnership Act, Limited Liability Act. Your company name helps customers find you, understand what you do and remember your company. It is important that the company name you choose has the domain name available to be registered.
A business name cannot be similar to a business name already existing in Singapore. The registration authority will not allow the company name registration to proceed if the name is not unique or is already in use.
