Government lowers contractual age to 18

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 25, 2008

As part of broader efforts to encourage entrepreunership among young Singaporeans, the Government has proposed lowering the age of contractual capacity from 21 years to 18.

The current minimum age of contractual capacity is tied to the age of majority, which is 21 years in Singapore.

This legal barrier has prevented young people from starting or doing their own business.

The Pro-Enterprise Panel has received feedback for this to be removed. (story)
