Hi, my name is Manda,

My company is in Korea and Indonesia, and we have a plan to open a company in Malaysia (Kota Kinabalu). Since we didn’t have a team in Malaysia we need a consultant to guide us for the step by step how to open a company in Malaysia (such as what the document we need, how to get the employee, and many more).

For the basic first, can you give me a hint of what document or what we have to do to open a company in Malaysia?

Hi Manda,

Glad to hear your interest!

The steps to incorporate a Company such as private limited Company (Sdn. Bhd.) are as follows:

  1. At least one director and shareholder that has legitimate local residential address
  2. Minimum paid-up capital is MYR 1
  3. The cost of registration with Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) is MYR 1,060
  4. Must appoint a licensed Company Secretary within 30 days after incorporation is done
  5. Can venture into almost all types of businesses available in Malaysia


The registration of a Company can be done online by the appointed licensed Company Secretary without the need of you to come down to Malaysia.
