How to incorporate a company in Malaysia?

To incorporate a company in Malaysia, you will need to follow these steps:
1) Choose a name for your company: You can search the Companies Commission of Malaysia’s (SSM) database to ensure that the name you have chosen is available. You will also need to check if the name meets the naming guidelines set by SSM.

2) Prepare the necessary documents: You will need to prepare the following documents:

• A memorandum and articles of association
• A statutory declaration
• A Form 24 (Notice of situation of registered office and particulars of directors)
• A Form 49 (Particulars of directors, managers, and secretaries)

3) Submit the documents to SSM: You will need to submit the above documents, along with the appropriate fee, to SSM. You can do this online through SSM’s e-Info services portal or in person at any SSM office.

4) Register for taxes: You will need to register your company for taxes with the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM). This can be done online through the IRBM’s e-Daftar portal or in person at any IRBM office.

5) Obtain any necessary licenses and permits: Depending on the nature of your business, you may need to obtain certain licenses and permits before you can start operating. You will need to check with the relevant authorities to determine what is required.

It is advisable to seek the assistance of a professional service provider, such as a company secretary in Malaysia, to ensure that the incorporation process is completed properly.
