The Business Times (BT) is an English-language financial daily based in Singapore currently owned by Singapore Press Holdings. It is currently the only daily newspaper in Singapore that focuses on business and financial news. The Business Times is published as a broadsheet on weekdays, with a weekend edition that is published as a compact-sized paper.

BT started life as a supplement that was distributed three times a week with The Straits Times. On Oct 1, 1976, The Business Times became a newspaper in its own right. In June 1995, BT became the first English-language newspaper in Asia to go online. By 2000, BT's website was offering news updates throughout the day. In February 2012, BT launched a sister site BTInvest, a portal focused on finance and investment. Over the course of 2012 and 2013, BT also rolled out mobile apps, for the iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones.
