Darren Lim, a well-known Mediacorp actor and businessman, and his ex-Actress wife, Evelyn Tan, were the envy of Singaporeans when they decided to embark on a year-long sailing voyage with their family.
Unbeknownst to all, the family has been living in their three-room yacht docked at the ONE°15 Marina Club for four years until Oct 2015, when the tenant of their apartment left. During those time, they visited Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Evelyn ‘home-schooled’ the children whilst weaving in and out of her map reading role during their travels.
Darren felt that most people living in the Singapore rarely get to experience the wonders of the sea and wanted to create an amazing sea experience for Singaporeans to escape the crowded city on his yacht. His business concept is to provide a short 4-5hrs fun boating experience for the family and an overnight adventure sailing experience for those itching for more.
Incorporating his Company with SOAS
Darren decided to incorporate a company and approached a friend who recommended SOAS for incorporation, secretarial as well as accounting services.
He told us, “I was recommended to SOAS by a friend and went to check out your website for more information. I found your prices quite competitive and more importantly, there was no hidden cost. I was very impressed by David’s experience and knowledge – he was able to identify the correct nature of my business (SSIC Code) as soon as I told him my business idea.”
SOAS’s Unique Company Incorporation Platform
SOAS has a unique company incorporation platform that allows anyone to incorporate a Singapore Registered Company from anywhere in the world!
“All in all, I only spent less than 30mins on SOAS’s incorporation platform and I received the approval notification in less than 2 days! David was also very patient in guiding me throughout the process”
We asked him how he felt about SOAS and he replied candidly, “One of the reasons why I decided to use SOAS was that you offer a whole slew of services from incorporation to corporate secretary to accounting services. You know, I get a headache when I see the numbers so I was very happy to outsource them to SOAS. As a businessman, I want to be able to focus on delivering the best experience to my clients. In fact, I had already recommended SOAS to a friend who is interested to start a business as well.”
Although Darren’s company is just one of the many companies we have incorporated, Darren’s endorsement of SOAS is a truly humbling experience for us. We shall continue to strive to deliver a high standard of service to each of our customers and wish Darren Lim all the best in his new business venture.
