Are you a business owner in Malaysia?
Chances are, you’ve probably gone through the registration process for Sole Proprietorship or Partnership business under Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM).
You’ve most likely even visited the SSM office at least once during this process to activate your ezBiz account.
ezBiz is the official portal provided by SSM to register a new company online, conduct changes in business particulars, and terminate or purchase business information.
You can access the portal at only www.ezbiz.ssm.com.my 24 hours a day, every day of the week. ezBiz offers various online services that present a hassle-free and quick alternative to ‘over-the-counter’ transactions, and renewing your business is one of them!
Even if you don’t have the time or convenience to verify yourself at the SSM counter, you can now access their online renewal service for Sole Proprietor at https://www.skeneur.com/register-company-business-malaysia-online-ezbiz/.
