A Singapore branch office is a legal entity registered with the “Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA)” of Singapore. A Singapore branch office is considered an extension of the foreign company and not as a separate legal entity. From a taxation point of view, a branch office is generally considered a non-resident entity and therefore not eligible for the tax exemptions and incentives available to local companies in Singapore. Most Branch offices set up in Singapore are banks.
