The Companies Commission of Malaysia has introduced a new registration number format containing 12 digit characters for companies, businesses and limited liability partnerships in Malaysia. The format is introduced to replace the various formats of registration numbers generated by the previous system and is in line with the Government’s initiative to have a single registration format for business entities in Malaysia. The new registration number format has been implemented with effect from 11.10.2019. For more information, please see the FAQs by the Companies Commission of Malaysia on the implementation of the new format for the registration number of business entities here.
