It was not until 2009 that Biz Vision Group founder, Paul Lim, took a challenging leap in incorporating his own company- Biz Vision Consulting (BVC). Having left his position at one of the Big Four audit firms, BVC was set up to provide a comprehensive range of professional business advisory and corporate services such as company incorporation and tax planning service.

Five years later, the company was selected as one of the business luminaries for the Promising SME 500 2014 Awards, a campaign organized by the Small Medium Business Association (SMBA) to recognize the exceptional achievements of Singapore’s entrepreneurs.

As a thriving SME, BVC has till date served several hundred clients, both local entrepreneurs and foreign clients of reputable MNCs and SMEs across various continents worldwide.
