File the Company Incorporation Application with the Malay Authority

The applicant must provide the incorporation details in the company registration application. He must also provide the details related to the following:

  • Appointed Directors of the Company
  • Subscribed Shareholders of the Company

File the requisite Declarations for Company Formation in Malaysia

The registration applicant must provide the requisite declarations to register a Business in Malaysia. The declaration must state the information provided by the Incorporation Application is true to the applicant's knowledge.

 

Examiner assesses the Application & Issues a Notice of Registration

After the application submission, the SSM will review the application for inconsistencies. If SSM encounters no problems by the SSM related to the application, it will send a registration notice to the applicant.

 

Obtain the Certificate of Incorporation and other Business Licenses

Suppose the applicant's filed application complies with the registration procedures and submission of the duly attested documents and the prescribed licensing fee.
