Free BP
From 2 June 2017, ACRA will offer all newly registered/incorporated entities a free copy of their Business Profile upon successful registration or incorporation. For entities that are registered with ACRA, a free Business Profile will be sent to the person filing the transaction after they have successfully renewed their business registration, filed Annual Returns or Annual Declarations.

The Business Profile is an electronic report containing the business information which the entity has filed with ACRA. The Business Profile is required when opening a corporate bank account under the entity's name, or as supporting document for applying licenses and permits. The provision of the free Business Profile is part of ACRA's effort to help businesses reduce business costs, and to ease administration burden, encourage timely filing and facilitate record keeping.

How to receive the free Business Profile

  • Newly incorporated companies / Variable Capital Companies (VCCs)
