Can S Pass or Work Permit holders be registered as company directors? What are the consequences of doing so?

No. S Pass or Work Permit holders are not allowed to carry on or manage any business in Singapore. As such, they cannot register themselves as sole-proprietors, partners or directors of any Singapore-registered company.

By doing so, they will have infringed the work pass conditions and their work passes will be revoked. They will also need to serve an employment ban.
