Individuals Permitted to Open a Corporate Bank Account

The director(s) and any authorized signatories, if designated, possess the authority to initiate the opening of a corporate bank account. Authorized signatories, individuals appointed to manage the account’s operations, must also be explicitly listed in the company’s board resolution.

Why Banking in Singapore is the Better Alternative

Singapore’s banking industry is renowned for its stability and efficiency and is ranked as the world’s third-leading financial center. Offering multi-currency accounts and secure internet banking, major global banks and well-capitalized domestic institutions operate within the country, while digital banking options like Wise are gaining popularity due to their ease of use and lower fees.

Opening a bank account in Singapore requires adherence to regulatory compliance, with approval contingent on legitimate business activity, transparent structures, and clean stakeholder backgrounds. While fees and minimum balance requirements vary, they remain globally competitive, fostering a conducive environment for businesses with regional connections to operate seamlessly within the global financial system.
