Singapore has quickly become one of the world’s most prosperous countries with strong international trading links and per capita GDP equal to that of the leading nations in Western Europe, making it an ideal destination and potential location for Business Owners to relocate and start a new business and lifestyle.
To set up an overseas company or relocate your existing business in another jurisdiction, let alone another continent may be a daunting process but crucial step towards internationalising yourself and your assets.
Before The Move
A little research will go a long way to give you a rudimentary understanding of what to expect from daily life in Asia, allowing you to settling down quicker. For instance by starting to learn basics of the language; and prepare you for any major cultural differences. Moving abroad long-term can be a challenging experience which will eventually be rewarding, both professionally and personally.
Luckily, Singapore is an extraordinarily easy place to get acquainted with. Lots of information is readily available by phone or online. You can read more about it in our expats guide to relocating to Singapore.
