How to Set Up a Non-Profit Organization in Singapore

In this issue of ASEAN Briefing magazine, we discuss the options available to foreign nationals and entities for setting up a non-profit organization (NPO) in Singapore. We begin by introducing the various forms of NPOs in Singapore. We next focus on the process of registering or incorporating a Public Company Limited by Guarantee (PCLG), which is the most preferred form of NPO for overseas nationals or entities in Singapore. We finally discuss the specific tax obligations of NPOs and incentives that are on offer for them in Singapore.
