Why hire a Corporate Service Provider?

ASEAN boasts the planet’s 5th largest economy, and is projected to be the 4th by 2030 (according to the World Bank). However, it’s also home to some of the complex jurisdictions and fragmented markets in the world. Most countries have rapidly changing requirements and regulations, and limited access to online resources and knowledge. Choosing to launch/expand your business here without assistance can be time consuming, tedious, costly, and extremely risky without the right guidance.In fact, some markets such as Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines will require you to appoint a corporate secretarial (service provider).Here are some of the benefits you may experience by hiring a corporate service provider:

minimize risk
Minimize Risk

The ever changing legislation and complicated official procedures found in most Southeast Asian countries, frequently expose business owners to liabilities and costly mistakes. This sometimes can result in fees in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and real legal liabilities. It’s wise to leverage the expertise of professional service providers, who specialize in local regulation and compliance, and in handling cases like yours on a daily basis.

Save Time
Save Time

Don’t waste your time by doing your own due diligence, exhausting your own resources, when you can easily leverage the expertise of a local supplier. Hiring a corporate service provider with years of experience within your target markets and industry, can seriously accelerate your project delivery and alleviate seemingly endless hours of research.

Many service providers refrain from listing out their services and prices online. We not only pre-screen and qualify every supplier on our platform, but we bring you transparency by listing out their credentials and starting prices for the services you seek. This way, you’re able to compare your prospective service provider by various filters, like ratings, service suite, and/or prices.

How to find the most suitable Corporate Service Provider?

Okay, it’s clear by now that engaging a corporate service provider for your expansion projects is advantageous. Now let’s discuss how to source and select the providers best suited for your business needs.

Personal Referrals
Talk to other business leaders and ask the following questions about your their experience:
  • How did you find your supplier?
  • What services did they provide?
  • Did they communicate consistently and clearly?
  • Do you feel they were transparent about the process, timelines, and costs?
  • Did you feel confident in their capabilities and subject matter expertise?
  • How was your customer experience?

Getting this firsthand knowledge from someone you know and trust can give you a realistic idea of what to expect as you seek your supplier. The downside of this approach is that we frequently perceive value differently - where one company may consider high responsiveness as a 5-start service, another may value credibility of the service provider’s brand.

online listing
Google Search and online listings

Here’s the issue with search - most corporate service providers in Asia have limited online resources, so there is a good chance you will only find a fraction of available/qualified suitors. Many who you will find online, tend to be the larger organizations, which also tend to be the most expensive. This process can be extremely time consuming, so our recommendation if you’re depending on search to source your supplier, is to read the reviews, ask for starting prices upfront, and compare at least 3 vendors throughout your process.

mind map
Beware of the redflags, and walk away from suppliers who:
  • Talk over your head and don’t explain industry jargon
  • Avoids discussing costs, and are vague about fees and billing
  • Don’t seem confident in answering your questions, and handling the tasks you need them to do
  • Don’t make you feel good about working with them
