Partnership

There are 3 forms of partnership entities in Singapore. Each entity has their own corresponding benefits and different requirements during setup and registration. Unlimited Liability Partnership Akin to a Sole-Proprietorship, an Unlimited Liability Partnership has the exact same structure and benefits with minimal or no liability protection. It is the simplest form of business to operate in Singapore. There are no corporate taxes and each partner needs to only contribute personal taxes. An Unlimited Liability Partnership needs to be renewed annually and at least one partner and manager needs to be a local resident. An Unlimited Liability Partnership is not a separate legal entity from its partners. Hence, only low risk business activities should be performed and as there is unlimited liability, the partners involved are exposed to full damages from losses and debts incurred during the course of business.
