Register your business now!
Similar to setting up a conventional business, online businesses are required to register themselves with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), which is an agency that comes under the purview of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs.
All online traders who carry out businesses via a marketplace or e-commerce companies must be registered with SSM and that failure to do so would result in actions being taken in accordance with the Registration of Businesses Act 1956 (ROBA), with financial penalties being imposed up to RM50,000 in the event of any non-compliance.
