Why Asia

Growing middle-class

As one of the world’s fastest growing economies, Asia is on a rapid growth momentum. The increase in average incomes and spending power has brought with it an emergence of a growing middle-class, driving higher consumption and greater domestic demand for goods and services. For this reason, Asia remains prime on the watch list of global investors, who have continued to propel incrementally growing amounts of foreign direct investment into the region in expectation of long-term sustainable expansion.

Large wealth concentration and niche demand

Asia is home to one of the largest concentrations of wealth in the world. Much of this wealth lies in the hands of young and well-educated high net-worth individuals. With a significantly lower average age compared to Western countries and growing demand for niche products and services, opportunities abound for firms willing to penetrate the Asian market and explore new ways of doing business.

Strength of regional alliances

There has been a marked step-up in the strength and focus on regional alliances in recent years. The ASEAN economic community that aggregates 10 countries of South East Asia, is the third largest economic block in the world after the European Union (EU) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The ASEAN community’s increased commitment towards economic regional integration has resulted in specific steps and goals established to make South East Asia a free-flow zone for goods, services, investments and skilled labour.

Our Location

Singapore strategic hubStrategic hub

Our location, Singapore, stands strategically at the crossroads of Asia. Facilitated by its highly efficient and well-connected world-class international airport and trading port, Singapore provides immediate and direct international access to its ASEAN and Asian neighbours, as well as every country in the world.

Safe and friendly for businesses

Singapore is renowned for its pro-business stance. A world leader in business, Singapore is a global business magnet, attracting sizable foreign investments and a bustling cutting-edge financial community. Foreign companies willing to take a step into Asia will find that Singapore’s international standard regulations and well-organised business environment makes doing business easy, safe and friendly.

Unparalleled efficiency

In contrast to many countries, Singapore is one of the few locations in the world that enables entrepreneurs to incorporate a company and establish smooth operational capability within a short timeframe. The efficiency of the judiciary and justice system, customs clearance and import regulations, as well as infrastructural setups for Internet, phone and office makes the process of establishing a business in Singapore efficient and fuss-free.

Outstanding tax system

An uncomplicated corporate tax system makes Singapore a prime location of choice for businesses seeking to establish operations in Asia. There are also no capital gains taxes in Singapore, so dividends can be distributed to shareholders tax-free for income that has already been taxed at the corporate level. Singapore’s Goods and Services Tax is one of the lowest globally, at a flat rate of 7%. In addition, Singapore  offers a tax exemption scheme for new start-up companies subject to your company meeting the tax authority’s stated requirements.
