ACRA Introduces Special UENs (SUNs)

With effect from 9th February 2018, Singapore business and corporate entity owners can choose a Special Unique Entity Number (known as a Special UEN, or ‘SUN’) for their new venture.

Until now, there has been no way to know, or choose, a UEN in advance – a UEN is the ACRA-issued identifying ID for a business/corporate entity, which is used for all official trade and government transactions i.e. license registration, tax filing.

Usually, all business and corporate entities are automatically issued with a system generated UEN at the point of their incorporation, registration, or entity conversion. As to whether the number combination of a UEN turns out to be culturally auspicious or unlucky; memorable or forgettable, this has always been down to pot luck!

However, for a fee, you can now choose to have a Special UEN (SUN) from a list of ACRA-reserved UENs, which have been classified into two categories based on perceived consumer appeal (with special attention to Chinese cultural practices), and with a corresponding price tag attached.

The 2 categories of SUNs available are:

  • Tier 1 Special UENs can be purchased for a fee of S$3,000 and include UENs with consecutive identical numbers (eg. 5 in a row for companies, 4 in a row for LLPs), and UENs with any number combination involving the number ‘8’.
  • Tier 2 Special UENs can be purchased for a fee of S$1,000 and include UENs with a repetitive number pattern (excluding the number ‘8’), and UENs which end with a triple identical number (eg. ‘222’, ‘666’, ‘777’).
Category Criteria Company Business Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Limited Partnership (LP) Public Accounting Firm (PAF)
Tier 1 Consecutive same number 201888888A 53499999V T18LL7777F T18LP2222J T18PF1111P
Any number combination involving `8` 201800800K 53480008L T18LL8000O T18LP0008H T18PF8800X
Tier 2 Repetitive Pattern (excluding `8`) 201812121R 53410101G T18LL7070F T18LP3535J T18PF1010R
Ending with triple identical numbers 201801777W 53415666P T18LL1222N T18LP5222S T18PF1666M

SUNs are very limited in number and subject to availability, so it is a case of ‘get one while they last’.
