Under Section 5 of the Business Registration Act 2014, any forms of business activity that is carried on continuously for the purpose of gain, must be registered with ACRA.
However, there are exemptions to this Act, such as, any individual proprietor who is carrying on business under the individual proprietor’s full name.
Thus, an individual conducting online sales not on a frequent basis (e.g. weekly or monthly basis, etc.), is exempted from registering the business with ACRA as long as the business is under his or her own full name.
