We help you ride the waves of disruption

Innovation is imperative and change is a constant. In this age of disruption, how do companies stay ahead while mitigating risks and staying within the bounds of the law? How does Singapore's new Payment Services Act 2019 ('PSA') impact your business and forward-planning? Do you need a licence for your services, or are your activities exempted?

Yuen Law LLC provides future-minded companies with legal and strategic expertise in navigating the complex regulatory framework that governs the fintech and payment services sectors.

The new PSA legislation applies specifically if your business activities include:

  • Account issuance services
  • Domestic money transfer services
  • Cross-border money transfer services
  • Merchant acquisition
  • Electronic money issuance
  • Digital payment token services
  • Money-changing services

We have vast expertise in financial services and are more than up to speed on the requisites of the evolving payment services landscape.

We will ensure your company is compliant, advise on your business model, identify opportunities and keep you positioned for success - whether you are a fintech firm, operate in the digital sphere, are a traditional company looking to transform for the new economy, or are a boundary-pushing startup that defies current classification.
