Applying Business Licence in Malaysia

Updated: Nov 4, 2023

It is very important to get a business license because it will clarify your reputation as a trader (online or offline) after registration.


Obtaining a valid business license is important to start a business in Malaysia. This includes licensing, registration, permits and approvals. Business licenses can be applied from the licensing authority Pihak Berkuasa Melesen (PBM) related to the location and business activities.


Before a company can legally start a business, it must comply with some form of licensing. This can be a general license, an industry / sector-specific license, or an activity-specific license. Business licenses are regulated by law and are governed by various government agencies, statutory bodies and local authorities. Business licenses include registrations, approvals, licenses, and permits. Compliance requirements vary by industry, business activity, and location.


Business licenses can be divided into three different logical groups:


  1. General licenses

  2. Industry sector-specific licenses

  3. Activity-specific licenses

1. General Licenses


General licenses include required and applicable licenses when investors decide to start a business in Malaysia.


List of general licenses that apply to all businesses include:

  1. Company registration

  2. Income tax registration for companies and employees

  3. Employees Provident Fund (EPF)

  4. Social Security Organisation (SOCSO)

  5. Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF)

  6. Business Premise Licenses and Signboard Licenses

Malaysian companies are required to apply for business premise licenses and signboard licenses from their state authorities.


2. Industry / Sector-Specific Licenses


A special industry / sector license is a license for a particular industry or sector set by the government. This includes the policies that govern the development of a particular industry or sector in accordance with the development of government policy.


Examples of Industrial / Sector Special License are:

  • Licenses related to the Manufacturing Sector

  • Licenses and Permission related to the Distributive Trade

Foreign participation (foreign equity 51% or more) in the Malaysian distribution trade sector, including wholesalers, retailers, franchisors, direct sellers, suppliers selling goods to the domestic market, commission agents or other representatives including international trading companies need to be licensed by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs.

  • Licenses related to the Telecommunication Sector

  • Licenses related to the Broadcasting Sector

  • Licenses related to the Oil Exploration Sector

  • Licenses related to the Construction Sector

  • Licenses related to the Banking Sector

  • License under Department BLESS, Ministry Of Entrepreneur Development (MED)

The BLESS system is a one-stop online service or online service center (BLESS portal) for information and application for licenses / permits / permission (BLESS applications) related to business in Malaysia.

  • License under the Department of Occupational Safety and Health Malaysia (DOSH)

  • License under the National Water Services Commission (SPAN)

3. Activity - Specific Licenses


An activity-specific license is a license that regulates a particular activity and may apply to one or more industries. The license requires investors to follow a set of specific guidelines designed to protect the interests of citizens, employment, employee safety, the environment and the public interest.


Here are examples of an activity-specific license:

  1. Certificate of fitness for certificated machinery

  2. Approval for expatriate posts

  3. Approval to install / resite / alter air pollution control equipment (bag filter and chimney)

  4. Building plan approval

  5. Sales tax

The above information is a general guide for potential investors and business owners to make the first steps, decisions, and plans for their business.
