Change in Particulars of Shareholders

Corporate Secretary

In the course of carrying out your business operations, you might find it necessary to make certain changes to the particulars of shareholders. Shareholders may wish to transfer shares and in the process, they might also change their details. In any transaction that has a transfer of shares, there is an existing shareholder who is giving up the share (a transferor), and the new shareholder who will be receiving the share (a transferee).

Any changes to the particulars of the shareholders must be lodged with the Registrar (ACRA).

What’s the Process of Changing the Particulars of Shareholders?

ACRA dictates that all Singapore Companies must maintain the latest information on their company’s shareholders in BizFile+. You must update your company shareholder’s information on BizFile+ within 14 days.

To add details of new shareholders, use the “Return of Allotment of Shares” transaction. To log these changes, visit > File eServices > Local Company > Make Changes > Change in particulars of shareholders.
