A Singpass is a common password that allows users to connect and transact with government agencies in Singapore. Singpass also comes with 2-Step Verification (2FA) especially for government e-transactions involving sensitive data. With 2FA, users will be required to enter a One-Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS, or generated through a OneKey token. This is in addition to their SingPass username and password.
A Singpass is required when registering a company online with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA). The registration is done through via ACRA’s online filing and information retrieval system, BizFile. Only an individual with a SingPass can lodge a transaction via BizFile. For foreigners who wish to register a company in Singapore but not carry out the process themselves, you may contact Rikvin to help you with the online registration and filing.
