To check the status of a Singapore company, you can use the online services provided by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), the government agency responsible for regulating business entities in Singapore. ACRA offers a user-friendly online portal where you can access various information about companies registered in Singapore. Here’s how you can do it:
- Visit the ACRA Website: Go to the ACRA website at www.acra.gov.sg.
- Access the BizFile+ Portal: Click on the “e-Services” tab or a similar option that leads you to the BizFile+ portal. BizFile+ is ACRA’s online portal for accessing company-related information.
- Log In or Register: If you already have an account, log in using your credentials. If not, you may need to register for an account to access certain services. Registration typically requires a SingPass account or a CorpPass account, depending on your eligibility.
- Search for the Company: Once logged in, you can search for the company by its name or registration number. Enter the relevant details in the search field and click “Search.”
- View Company Information: The search results will display a list of companies that match your search criteria. Click on the company name you’re interested in to view its details. You should be able to see information such as the company’s registration status, registration number, address, directors, and more.
- Purchase a Company Profile Report (optional): If you need a more detailed report about the company, including its financial statements, you can purchase a Company Profile Report through BizFile+. There is usually a fee associated with this service.
- Verify the Information: Review the information to ensure it matches the company you’re looking for. Pay attention to the company’s registration status to confirm its current standing.
Please note that while most basic information about Singapore companies is publicly accessible, certain financial and sensitive information may only be available to authorized users or for a fee.
