SINGAPORE: The Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) said on Thursday (June 12) that it was not associated with an entity called Company Register, which had sent letters asking several firms to update their particulars and pay a fee.
ACRA "wishes to clarify that we are not associated with nor do we correspond with any party using the name Company Register", a statement said.
"Members of public should also note that the statutory duty to file and provide business information under the Companies Act is owed only to ACRA, the national regulator of business entities and public accountants in Singapore."
"Companies that need to file or update their records with ACRA, should do so only through BizFile, ACRA's online filing and information retrieval system, at www.bizfile.gov.sg," the authority added. - CNA/xy
