In Singapore, two companies are not allowed to have the same name. So, it is important to come up with a unique name as a company name to avoid the application from being reverted, in some cases, rejected. 

To assist you further, there is a rule of thumb when it comes to choosing the right company name;

  1. Find an easy-to-spell word as your company name.

  2. Make sure the domain is available .com is recommended

  3. Use a name that conveys some meaning.

Once you have found the name, you may use our tools above to check if the name you intended to use exists.

After a company's name has been struck off from the register, the same words in the company name may be used by other applicants.

Yes, it is possible. However, try extending it with some words. (e.g. instead of "Inshion" you may try "Inshion Consultants Singapore".)

The below information must be prepared before the reservation of the company name;

  1. Proposed company name

  2. Business activity (SSIC) - up to two activities (You may select your business activity here)

  3. Director(s) - at least one local director

  4. Shareholder(s) - director and shareholder can be the same person

Other than company name availability, it is crucial to find a unique word or word combination for the proposed company name, and it should not contain words that are vulgar, obscene or offensive.

There are three possible outcomes as listed below:

  •          Outcome 1: Name is Approved

If the name is approved, we can proceed to the next steps of incorporating the company.

  •          Outcome 2: Name is Referred

This means that the name application has been referred to a relevant government authority for review and approval. This typically happens when the company name contains words that could imply a specific type of business activity which is a regulated business activity in Singapore (e.g. "financial", "bank", "school", "media", "publishing", etc.). If the company name is referred, the review and approval process may take up to 1-2 weeks.

  •           Outcome 3: Name is Rejected

If the name is found to be similar/identical to an existing name or containing the non-desirable keyword(s), the name will be rejected by the Company Registrar.

If the name is rejected, there are two available options:

  1.  If there is a solid reason why the name should be approved, an appeal can be submitted to authorities by providing proper justification. The name appeal takes take up to 3-5 days for processing.

  2.  Submit another name for approval
