Guide to Using CorpPass in Singapore
A CorpPass is used by all business and companies set up in Singapore as a digital unique business identity. Corppass is mainly used for online transactions with Government agencies such as IRAS, ACRA, CPF etc.
With effect from 1st September 2018, the CorpPass is made mandatory for all businesses in Singapore to replace other existing login methods (E.G SingPass and EASY) to make transactions online. Any entrepreneur that goes through the application to incorporate a company in Singapore after 1st September 2018 will have to use CorpPass to manage his or her new company. CorpPass serve to be a single corporate digital identity and this will create opportunities for more services and transactions conducted online to be provided in a convenient and secure manner.
Currently, CorpPass is required for not only for Singaporean entrepreneurs that have set up a company in Singapore but also for foreign business entities who wish to access the majority of Singapore Government Business digital services.
Currently, only entities that were incorporated in Singapore with a Unique Entity Number (UEN) and foreign entities are eligible to register for a CorpPass.

- The CorpPass User account
The roles of CorpPass Admin and CorpPass Sub-Admin are able to do majority of the transactions with the government digital services, create other CorpPass accounts and managing the users.
