Company registration process
Simple steps to starting your new business.
1. We will conduct a name search
The first step to registering a new company in Malaysia is conducting a name search. Its purpose is to determine whether the proposed company name is available.
2. We will draft and submit your registration documents
Registration documents must be prepared and submitted to SSM no later than one month after receiving the approval for the proposed company name. Failing to meet this window will result in having to go back to the previous step and conduct a new name search.
3. Receiving certificate of registration
A successful submission ends with receiving a certificate of registration issued by SSM. Your company is then ready to operate.
The average time taken to complete the entire registration process is seven days, but with your cooperation we can do it faster.
