New regime allows foreign companies to re-domicile to Singapore

FOREIGN companies will be allowed to transfer their registration from their home jurisdiction to Singapore, under the new inward re-domiciliation regime, starting Wednesday.

It will allow foreign companies to re-domicile to Singapore, instead of having to set up a subsidiary here.
