Here is an overview of signboard licenses in Malaysia:
What is a Signboard License
A signboard license is a permit issued by the local authorities in Malaysia that allows you to legally display a signboard for your business. It is a requirement for all businesses in Malaysia, and operating without one can result in a fine of up to RM30,000.
Who Issues Signboard Licenses
Signboard licenses are issued by the local council in the area where your business is located. For example, if your business is located in Kuala Lumpur, your signboard license would be issued by Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).
How to Apply for a Signboard License
The process for applying for a signboard license can vary depending on the local council, but it generally involves the following steps:
Submit an application form to the local council.
Pay the application fee.
Submit the required supporting documents, such as a copy of your business registration certificate and a copy of your tenancy agreement.
Have your signboard inspected by the local council.
Once your application is approved, you will be issued a signboard license.
Signboard Design Guidelines
There are also specific design guidelines that your signboard must adhere to in order to be approved. These guidelines vary depending on the local council, but they generally cover things like the size, color, and content of your signboard.
Renewal of Signboard Licenses
Signboard licenses are typically valid for one year and must be renewed annually.
