GUIDELINES FOR HOME OFFICE SCHEME

You can register to conduct small-scale business from your private home or HDB flat and hire up to 2 non-resident employees. This is provided that the business does not cause disturbance or inconvenience to the neighbouring residents.

Registering for the Home Office Scheme

Anyone who is the owner, tenant or any authorised occupier of a private residential property and wish to operate a Home Office (HO) can register.

If you are not the owner, you have to obtain written consent from the owner before you register for the Home Office use.

RESTRICTIONS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE HOME OFFICE SCHEME

Restrictions and performance criteria ensures the scale of the home office use is kept small so that it does not disturb or cause inconvenience to the neighbours. These include:
  • not hiring more than 2 non-resident employees
  • not displaying any external business signage or advertisements
  • not generating noise, smoke, odour, waste matter or dust 
  • the use does not fall within the list of businesses that are not permitted under the HO scheme (e.g. car trading business, shops and any form of retail activity, etc)
VALIDITY OF THE HOME OFFICE PERMIT 

The one-time permit is valid for the duration of your home office business. From 6 December 2010, you no longer need to renew the permit every 5 years.

It means a lot to anyone that his/her business will be going smoothly....
But, we all know that life has many upstairs which take you to the top, as there is downstairs which take you to bottom... 
Illegally none can survive for a long time ....
So, do everything legally, And you have not to worry about your business what ever it is..
