In accordance to the Singapore Companies Act (Cap 50), all local companies are required to have a local resident director at any point of time in the company. A local resident will be an individual who is a Singapore PR or Citizen with a valid Singapore based residential address. The minimum number of directors required is one. The maximum number of directors will usually be stated in the company’s Articles.
A company must have at least one director who is ordinarily resident in Singapore.
Being “ordinarily resident in Singapore” means the director’s usual place of residence is in Singapore. A Singapore Citizen, Singapore Permanent Resident, an EntrePass holder or an Employment Pass holder issued with such a pass to work in the company concerned and who has a local residential address can be accepted as a person who is ordinarily resident here.
