In Malaysia, having a company secretary is mandatory for any company to register and operate. Here's a breakdown of what you need to know:

Company Secretary

  • Every company must appoint at least one company secretary.

  • The secretary must be a natural person, 18 years old or above, and a Malaysian citizen or permanent resident.

  • They must also be a member of a professional body recognized by the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), such as the Malaysian Association of Company Secretaries (MACS) or the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA).

  • You can find a list of registered secretaries on the SSM website [SSM List Registered Secretaries].
