Company Registration in Malaysia - An Overview

The requirements for forming a company in Malaysia are not too stringent. Even if your company is entirely owned by foreigners, you can register it in Malaysia. Such a company, completely foreign owned, is referred to as a Sendirian Berhad company in Malaysia. The Malaysian government has designated specialised industries as solely intended for 100% foreign ownership. A foreigner can start a business in Malaysia by merging with a local firm or registering the foreign firm with the Companies Commission of Malaysia.

What Are the Preferred Industries in Malaysia?

These are the different business structures used in Malaysia:

Sole proprietorship: In Malaysia, it is simple to establish a sole proprietorship. The sole proprietorship business structure only needs one owner, and that owner has unlimited liability. In the event of bankruptcy, the owner's personal income or assets may be used to pay off the business's debts and obligations.

Private Limited Company: Because a private limited company is a separate legal entity from its owners, it is able to buy, sell, and enter into legal contracts as well as bring legal actions and be sued in court. In the event of insolvency or bankruptcy, the owners' liability shall be limited to the amount they have contributed to the business.

A public limited company: A public limited company is a business whose shares can be sold to the general public. Public limited companies are regulated by the Securities Commission of Malaysia and are listed on the stock exchange.

Foreign Company: Foreign businesses can set up a representative office to learn more about Malaysian business. In Malaysia, a representative office lacks any independent legal standing. As a result, the parent company is accountable for its obligations and liabilities.

Foreign parent company: An extension of the foreign parent company is a branch office. In this instance as well, the foreign parent company shall be liable and accountable for all debts of the Malaysian branch.

Unlimited Company – In this company type if there is a loss or the company incurs debt, the members and shareholders are personally liable. An unlimited company gives its members and shareholders unlimited liability.

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP): An LLP combines the traits of a limited liability company and a partnership. It has a corporate structure and a distinct legal identity from its partners. The LLP can be registered under the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2012.

Partnership: An entity may be registered as a partnership when two or more people join forces to profit from their commercial endeavors. A partnership can only have 20 partners. Only Malaysian citizens or citizens with permanent residency may be partners. The partnership's debts and obligations are wholly liable for the partners. The partners must each pay their own taxes; the partnership is not responsible for paying taxes.
