Singapore does not force any restrictions on foreigners who want to conduct business in the nation. It allows 100% ownership (i.e. shareholding) of a Singapore independent limited company.

The company may participate in any lawful business activity.

In Indonesia, the overseas administrators can set up a foreign direct investment company with 100% ownership but with the following constraints:

* The business activities are confined to only those which are open to foreign investment.

* Over 15 years from the start of commercial services, the foreign shareholder is required to divest at least 5 percent of their shares into an Indonesian national or legal entity.


In Singapore, the least incorporation requirements include a regional registered location; at least 1 citizen manager (a Singapore Citizen, a Singapore PR, or an immigrant holding a valid business visa or Dependent Pass); a neighborhood citizen and qualified institution secretary (should be a natural person); a minimum of two and maximum of 51 shareholders (natural persons or partners ); and a minimum paid-up financing of SGD 1.00 (no accepted capital required).

Foreigners who want to register a company in Indonesia must comply with these conditions: a neighborhood registered address; at least 1 manager (should not be a resident); minimum of 2 and a maximum of 50 shareholders (natural characters or corporates) and a commissioner.

Although there is no compulsory minimum share capital requirement, authorities usually approve companies with the least discuss cash of USD 100,000 — USD 250,000.
