Registering my company

vctech_logo.png

I’ve decided that I am going to merge all my online ventures into a single company. So I am going to the ROB on Monday to register my new company. Shouldn’t cost me too much, since it is only a company on paper. But after I have registered the company name, I will buy a new domain where I will display all my online ventures in a portfolio. Perhaps this whole thing is unnecessary, but since I deal with online clients all the time it would be good to show some measure of credibility, instead of the client seeing you as some random faceless stranger. I even have the company logo (see above). Actually the company name (founded in 1996) in the logo once belonged to my dad, but has now since become bungkus because of the Asian financial crisis of 1998 (and I blame Rafisuah Aziz for causing my father to go bankrupt).

Long story behind it.

Anyway what should I call this company? VCTech Media Networks? VCTech Network? What? Still have to think about it. And that logo sure needs a revamp for the Web 2.0 world, after all 1996 sure is a long time! More colours!

    Good luck with your new venture. I started one with friends sometime back but after an initial spurt we got distracted with whatever we were doing personally and closed down the business. Hope you fare better. My advice is to give it 100% attention.

    I will shortly be starting self employed as a sole trader with an online bag shop, i have decided on a company name but do i need to legally register this and also to stop other people from taking the same name? I am a bit confused as i am not a limited company, only a sole trader but i still need a company name.

    Hello

    I’m trying to register my company but finding the IN01 form hard to understand!

    I am on part 3 and completely stuck, it refers to statement of capital:

    Class of shares:
    Amount paid up on each share:
    amount (if any) unpaid on each share:
    number of shares:
    aggregate nominal value:

    Totals:
    Total number of shares:
    Total Aggregate nominal value:

    Any help would be appreciated as I am trying to get this finished ASAP. Or if anyone knows of company that specialise in this would be great too.

    Thanks in advance!

I am from Singapore, I have a register company whereby I am doing import and export. I want to make it big and I need to write up a company profile which I do not know how to do it. I also need to know the requirements for a bank loan. I have problem, my partner is from Nigeria and when bank look at Nigerians as partners, they seem not to be willing to loan me.

    I make birthday/novelty cakes, so far I have just made them for my family for free but I’ve had some interest in them. I know to be a registered company I have to register with my council and do a food safety course but at the moment I probably will only make 1 or 2 a month and just charge the price it takes to make it so I won’t make a profit is that ok?
