Transition to Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG)

With effect from 1st April 2024, PAVE, currently a registered Society, will be transitioned to PAVE Integrated Services Ltd, a Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG). The nature of our charitable objectives, vision and mission will remain unchanged and there will be no disruption of service during the transition.

Our new entity, PAVE Integrated Services Ltd (UEN: 202344076M), is a registered charity and has obtained the Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status.

The following sections will outline the details for this change and answer some queries that you may have.


  1. What is Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG)?

A Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) is a public limited company that carries out non-profit making activities of national or public interest such as charity work.

CLG is registered with ACRA (Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Singapore) and governed by the Companies Act. A CLG may obtain charity & IPC status.

CLG does not have a share capital which limits the member’s liability to the amount which they undertake to contribute to the company’s assets as specified in the constitution. CLG is not allowed to distribute profits in the form of dividends, bonuses or otherwise to its members. Any surplus is retained within the company.
