Singapore is one of the greenest cities in South Asia as it has gardens and green spaces in every residential area. Moreover, it was the government which came with a resolution of transforming the city-state into a “Garden City”. For this purpose, the new Industry Transformation Map also included a section where the Singapore landscaping sector is supported.
Foreign and local investors interested in starting a business in the landscaping industry in Singapore are not required to comply to any special requirements, however they must respect the regulations imposed by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources and the National Parks Board.
Our Singapore company formation consultants can assist with the registration process of a landscaping business.
Before starting the Singapore company formation process, the owner of the landscaping business should prepare a plan which comprises detailed information on the costs incurred with the opening of the company and the purchase of the equipment.
Once these start-up costs are determined, the owner can start the company registration procedure. A foreign investor can create a landscape company in Singapore by setting up a sole proprietorship, if the business is a small one, or a limited liability company if the owner plans to integrate various services. No matter the choice, our company formation experts in Singapore can guide you in the setting up the business.
Even if there are no special licenses to be obtained when establishing a Singapore landscaping business, the owner must take into account the substances, such as pesticides and fertilizers, used to treat the green spaces. Waste removal regulations must also be taken into account. Also, for carrying out landscaping works in public areas, approvals from the Urban Redevelopment Authority, the National Environment Agency and the National Parks Board must be obtained.
Foreign investors interested in starting a landscaping company in the city-state must appoint local agents to carry out the company registration process in Singapore, so if you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
