Renewing your Registration for Sole-proprietorships/Partnership

You must renew the business registration before the expiry date if you intend to continue running the sole proprietorship/partnership. You can renew the business registration up to 60 days before the expiry date. If you are late in renewing the business registration, a penalty may be imposed for late renewal. 
The registered owners of the sole proprietorship/partnership must ensure that their Medisave contributions are paid up-to-date with the CPF Board; otherwise the business registration cannot be renewed or the business registration may be cancelled.

For renewal of business registration, the following payment modes will be accepted:

1) Credit/ Debit Card (Visa or MasterCard); 
2) PayPal;
3) Apple Pay;
4) Google Pay

Existing business owners who are on GIRO may use any one of the payment modes above, as GIRO payment option will no longer be available from 1 Sep 2024. For step-by-step guide on how to use the various e-payment modes, please refer to

 Note: It is an offence to carry on business after the business registration has expired.
