My friend is in Singapore on an Employment Pass (EP). Can he be the local director of my Singapore Company? September 22, 2017 No, he cannot be a local director of your company when he is under employment pass (EP) of another company. Suggested Readings Can I apply for an Employment Pass prior to incorporating my Singapore company? Why do I need to appoint a resident director? Can I become a director of other companies while I am on Employment Pass (EP) for one company? Can an existing Employment Pass holder be a director of another company in Singapore? Do Singapore Employment Pass holders need to contribute to any social security or skill development fund etc?
