correct. under soleproprietor and partnership, you have unlimited liability - whereby if the business goes into debts or unfortunately bankruptcy, your assets are in "danger". so you may want to calculate your risks before entering into businesses under the above.

btw, for partnership - you can also consider LLP - limited liability partnership - whereby the partner is liable for his wrong decisions/actions, and not the wrongs of the other partner(s)

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):
[[so you were saying that its not necessary to apply under HDB address, if so ..please explain]]

Hi

Sorry to cut-in like this, i too would like to have a push cart business but i need more details on this. Coz i noe if register company name under SP it will cost your home. So i wanna to make sure before i proceed as this will cost my family life.

Can you estimate how much the rental for push cart ??

Regards & Thanks
understand your concerns too. i reg my small-time biz with my house address.

for pushcart rental, the rent can be from $2+k to $4+k per month; andand some/most landlords would require a 3-month upfront payment + a security deposit + fire insurance (+signboard fee) etc. can check the RETAIL RESOURCES of this forum for more info . you may want to do your homework properly, interview current pushcart operators at your desire location, calculate how much and how long you require to breakeven, and whether you can afford this risk/pay up should your business go bust. good luck!

It's better to register your business with a company address (like a warehouse or proper office, if any) than to use your own address. First and foremost, to use your residential address for business doesn't sound professional (in my opinion) if you want your clients/customers know where your office is. Secondly, it may be an inconvenience to your family (if you don't stay alone) as official mails may pile up your physical mail-box. That may annoy your family members or occupants.

If you don't have a physical office to start with, what you can do is to engage a virtual office for easy registration. I mean by doing so with a certain amount a year (depending on what type of package you opt for), it looks bit more professional.

Hi Good Afternoon
Just to elebrote more I am Samuel , 20 , Student. I am intending to start a small mobile push carts attached with a bicycle food business around my neighbourhood market. The push carts design will bring back the old memories of more than 50 years back in time how it use to be . Can i know what are the procedures, or what other option / advice i can look upon?

Thanks Samuel
