Your company name must be approved by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) before you can register it. ACRA will refuse a proposed company name if it is similar, identical or phonetically the same as a company that is already registered. You can use our free Singapore Company Name Check tool to ensure your company name isn’t already taken.
In addition, usage of words such as “bank”, “insurance”, and “education” could be subjected to control and regulation by other Government authorities and will require permission before you can proceed to incorporate. After approval of your company name, you can sit on your name for 60 days and file an extension of an additional 60 days if required.
