Increase In New Business Formations Underscores Singapore’s Attractiveness To International Business Community [Infographic]

0

Singapore has bounced back from a dip in new business formations posted in the previous quarter, with a 9% increase in Q2. 15,964 new businesses were registered in Q2 2015, underscoring the confidence in Singapore as an international business center.

Though the numbers contracted by more than 28% in Q1, when compared to Q4 2014, in this second quarter it appears to be returning to normalcy with a 9% QoQ growth. In Q2 2015 a total of 15,964 new businesses were formed, compared with 14,641 in Q1 2015. The return of the momentum is a reflection of the resilience of Singapore as a commercial hub and indicates the growing business confidence amidst global economic turbulence.

Singapore, with its strong business friendly fundamentals and its strategic location amidst the burgeoning Asian markets, continues to attract foreign investors and enterprises. 34% of the new business formed in Q2 2015 had foreign shareholders, while a total of 47 new foreign company branch offices were setup in Q2 – a QoQ growth of 11.9%.

Entrepreneurs continue to take advantage of the favorable share capital clause of the Singapore Company Act that provides for businesses to be formed with share capital as low as S $1. As a result, in this quarter 74% of the businesses were formed with less than $10,000 share capital.

International enterprises continue to set up their subsidiaries in Singapore. The share of US companies setting up subsidiaries increased in this quarter by 2%, to 5%.
