      An Overview On Incorporating a Company In Malaysia

      In Malaysia, creating a business has relatively lax procedures. You can register your business here even if foreigners own it totally. In Malaysia, a firm with 100 percent foreign ownership is known as a Sendirian Berhad company. Selected specialised industries have been classified by the Malaysian government as being only suitable for 100 percent foreign ownership.

      By combining with a local company or registering the foreign firm with the Companies Commission of Malaysia, a foreigner can open a business in Malaysia.

          How Zolvit Helps You to Incorporate a Company in Malaysia

          Forming a company in Malaysia entails the following steps:

          • Step 1: Zolvit Helps to Complete The Application

            The owner of a business must apply for the company's registration with the Registry of Companies. And yes, we will help you by completing the application on your behalf.

          • Step 2: Help You to Get the Right Name for Your Company

            We will conduct a name search with the Malaysian Companies Commission (SSM).

          • Step 3: Singing the Relevant Forms

            And once the company name has indeed been authorised, you should sign the relevant forms.

          • Step 4: Documents Delivery Will be Done

            Once your company is ready, the documents will be delivered to SSM.
