Generally speaking, a charge is a security interest that a creditor acquires in order to guarantee the repayment of obligations owed by a borrower.
Businesses of all sizes and in all industries often find themselves in need of financing from banks and other financial institutions. When a borrower defaults on a loan, the creditor may put a charge on the borrower’s “Register of Charges” and then sell those assets to recuperate the debt.
Charges are available in a wide range of ways
To put it another way, these types of levies are collected on things that can’t be moved or replaced (such land or automobiles).
It is possible to transform floating charges into permanent assets since they ‘float’ above the secured assets. Non-tangible assets that have value but are not clearly defined are known as “floating charges,” and they may take any form. Examples include stock, book debts, inventory, commitments, and other similar goods.
The government keeps track of all charges
If a charge has been imposed in Singapore, both parties have 30 days from the date of the charge to submit a charge with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) if the charge was made in Singapore. A charge registered in Singapore must be registered within thirty-seven days of its origination if it was produced elsewhere.

Making a Purchase Using Your Credit Card
The following are the steps to record a charge in Singapore:
Using your SingPass, you may submit an application to ACRA online. The director of the company or another authorised corporate official will provide this function in return for a fee. A registered filing agent, on the other hand, may submit the document on behalf of the corporation over the internet.
A notification will be sent to the consumer via email after the registered charge has been confirmed. An offence may be committed if a charge is not registered on time or if the charge is not recorded at all if it is not registered on time.
