ACRA brings additional 1000 charges against Data Register Pte Ltd

The Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) has brought a further 1,000 charges against Data Register Pte Ltd (previously known as “Company Register Pte Ltd”) for issuing business correspondence in October and November 2013 which did not state its company name and registration number.
These 1,000 charges are in addition to the earlier 104 charges brought against the company in January 2014. Each breach carries a maximum fine of S$1,000.
From November 2013 to January 2014, ACRA received over 2,000 queries from companies in relation to the correspondence they had received from Data Register Pte Ltd. In those correspondence, Data Register Pte Ltd requested companies to verify their details through its website, failing which their data would be deleted. Many members of the public informed ACRA that Data Register did not state its company name or registration number on its business correspondence and that they had dealt with Data Register thinking it was a government agency.
