Customer Target

The Aspire Business Account targets new digital SMEs and startups. It takes 5 minutes to complete the online application and the account will be ready to use after 3 working hours. The requirements to open an account are:

  1. Business is incorporated in Singapore (Pte Ltd, LLP, or LLC)
  2. Applicant must be the director

There are no documents needed if you register via MyInfo. If you register manually, you will only need to upload a copy of your ID document (front and back).

Aspire can open corporate bank account for any Singapore Company without the need to come physically to the bank which makes it the only solution for any foreigner that wants to create a company in Singapore and have a bank account without having to travel to the country.

ASPIRE Bank Summary Review

Although they are relatively new to the market compared to DBS, UOB and OCBC, Aspire promotes easy user experience, fast account openings and approvals, and transparent fees.

Opening an Aspire Account is free and requires no minimum deposit. The account can be opened entirely online with no need to visit a bank branch. There are no monthly fees, fall below fees, or FAST transfer fees. In fact, Aspire also features significantly lower foreign transfer fees when compared to the banks, making their offering highly competitive in the market.

Digital businesses can also earn up to 1% on their debit card spend on marketing & SaaS.


The downside of the account is that it does not yet support local ATM withdrawals or cheque deposits, so it might not be the best choice for traditional businesses. However, if you are a digital business, Aspire is by far the account with the best value.
