Hi thewishfullwedding,

When you want to setup a Business trade in Singapore must register with ACRA http://www.acra.gov.sg/company/index.htmlu .
Operate a pushcart need not have to take any license/permit at this movwment .Just apply to any pushcart owner if they allow your trade to be operate in their pushcarts fine but not for food .
For food operate in pushcarts your may get advice for NEA. http://app.nea.gov.sg/cms/htdocs/cat...sub.asp?cid=16.

Regards

for business concerning food, it's rather stringent. No 2 ways about it.
You'll definitely need to register your biz and get a liscense from the NEA

Hi

I wish to start a small pushcart business selling some small household lifestyle products. The property management office wants my ROC number for application of my pushcart. Is it a must that I have to register a company under ACRA? If I need to apply for a ROC number under ACRA, can I use my HDB home address as my company address? In doing so, do I also have to apply a license under Home Office Scheme from HDB town council ? Thanks.

It cost just $20 per year to register a BUSINESS (sole proprietor). You don't need to register a COMPANY to do a pushcart business.

You can register a business using your SingPass here: www.bizfile.gov.sg

If you wish to use your HDB flat as the registered address, you just need to apply online here (for 3 years):

Hope that helps

Cheers

Hi Juinjuin, your reply certainly helps and thank you. To register for a BUSINESS with ARCA, is it that I will still require to provide a business trade name/my shop name? Is the approval almost immediate?

Well to register, you need to provide a business name that is unique, meaning noone else is using it. You can check if a name is already in use here:

https://www.psi.gov.sg/NASApp/tmf/TM...ZFILE-BIZCODIR

As for trade name or shop name, it need not necessary be the same as you business name. Example, your business name can be Nightstar Marketing and your shop name can be Twinkle Stars.

Of course if you do well and your trade name becomes popular, you may want to register it as a trademark.

Regards

And yes, the approval is immediate, if I did not remember wrongly.

Cheers

Hi Juinjuin, I have a clearer picture now. Hehe...the name Nightstar Marketing and Twinkle Stars sound nice. Thanks very much for the idea.

Best Regards
