Corporate Secretarial Service
Why do you need a Company Secretary?
By law, it is required for every private limited company in Singapore to appoint a company secretary. The company secretary must be a natural person who is an “ordinary” resident in Singapore.

Who is a company secretary?
An officer of the company who holds an advisory role to the Board of Directors in relation to complying with the Companies Act.
Can I be my own company secretary?
A secretary must be a Singapore citizen, PR or Entrepass holder. If you are the company’s only director, you will not be able to act as the secretary. The Board of Directors have a duty to appoint a knowledgeable person as secretary as his advise is deemed to be professional.
What is the role of the corporate secretary?
In order to protect all the members of the company, it is the duty of the company secretary to ensure that all the documents are in order and properly kept inside the company’s minute book. At least one original signed copy of the company documents should always be kept inside the company minute book in order to ensure that all company documents remain well-maintained, recognized and legally binding to avoid any possible disputes.
At the same time, it is also the corporate secretary’s role to provide clear and proper advice to the members of the company on their queries related to their company structure and filings.
At Lionsworld, we want to ensure that all our clients are well-protected from any possible disputes arising from incomplete or improper documents. Hence, we continue to uphold the standards set by ACRA and the Singapore government to request our clients to sign all their documents originally, and if necessary, have their signatures notarized. Lionsworld also provides free consultations for companies who need advice but are unsure. Our most experienced corporate secretary has been advising businesses since 1982, so you can be assured that all advice is clear, fair and in your favor.
