How to Set Up a Singapore Holding Company

If you do decide to move forward with establishing a holding company, your objectives will dictate the right type and structure for it.

Types of Holding Companies

There are only two types of holding companies in Singapore: investment and financial. Each has its own particular registration criteria, but there’s not much difference in terms of taxation:


  • An investment holding company is the default structure for companies operating outside the finance, banking, and insurance industries;
  • A financial holding company is meant for owning subsidiaries operating in the finance, banking, and insurance industry.

Types of Corporate Structures

Singapore holding companies can be registered under certain corporate structures available in Singapore, such as private limited companies, public limited companies, limited liability partnerships, etc. In most situations, a private limited company (i.e. a corporation) is the best option due to its separate legal status, its members’ limited liability, and its eligibility for many tax-cut schemes as explained above.
