Requirements to Register new Company in Malaysia for Foreigners

If you are a Foreigner and want to start a business in Malaysia; Whatever business you want to start in Malaysia, first of all, you need to register a company in Malaysia. You can register a company in Malaysia in just RM2000 only. But such company will be having only RM2 cash (paid up capital) which is NOT entitled for Work Permits.

Furthermore; SOLE PROPRIETOR and “SHELF Companies” (ready made companies) are also NOT allowed for WORK PERMITS. 

Minimum 2 natural persons are required to register a new company in Malaysia. Husband and Wife also can be the 2 Directors/Shareholders of the Malaysian Sdn Bhd company.

And if you need “Director’s Visa/Work Permit, then your company MUST have a “PAID-UP” capital (not only the Authorized Capital) of:

  • RM 500,000, if the company is 100% Foreign owned (only for professionals i.e Accountants, Doctors, Engineers etc..) 
  • RM1 Million, if you want to do Trading/Import/Export/Restaurant/any Sales related business, suitable for any nationality

After company registration with RM1 Million Paid Up capital, you must have budget to arrange for an office with phone line and sign board license (PBT).

Please have in mind, Registration of Company and it’s Memorandum is “Key Document” in applying your Malaysian Work Permit. So, if you register your company through such company secretary, who does not know about Immigration procedures, he may add such activities in your company’s Memorandum which may require many other licenses BEFORE applying work permit. And if you apply WITHOUT getting those licenses, your work permit application will be REJECTED. So, be careful while registering your company. Always get the professionals who understand Immigration matters more than company incorporation! Saving few hundreds may lead to a “Total Loss”.

If you want to start a business which requires WRT license, then you will NOT be able to apply work permit until you get WRT license. If you apply work permit without getting WRT license, your work application will be rejected. To know more about WRT License, please CLICK HERE
