Payroll in Malaysia.

As an economic powerhouse for raw goods, Malaysia is an excellent place to expand if you’re looking to move into Asia. Although the country’s employment laws may seem confusing or complicated, you’ll notice many similarities between Malaysia and other countries that can help you set up your company.

Hiring in MyMalaysia.

Staying abreast of employment compliance laws is one of the trickiest aspects of expanding your business to a new country. From deciding the most effective recruitment channels to familiarizing yourself with local hiring practices and designing a solid onboarding program, there’s a lot to learn before you can officially establish your business in Malaysia.

Compensation & Benefits in Malaysia.

One of the most challenging parts of expanding to a new country is figuring out the right compensation and benefits to offer employees. This process entails adhering to Malaysia’s compensation laws and distinguishing between statutory benefits and supplemental offerings.

Malaysia Subsidiary.

The most challenging part of any expansion is establishing a subsidiary in a new country. Each country has different incorporation laws, so the amount of time and money required can often vary. In Malaysia, laws and cultural factors may even vary by region.

It’s important to know that a subsidiary in Malaysia is controlled to a certain degree by another legal entity, which can be a holding company or a parent company. To qualify as a Malaysian subsidiary, companies need to comply with various complex legal requirements.

Malaysia Visas & Permits.

When your company starts planning an expansion to Malaysia, hiring talented workers will be essential for a smooth market entry. As you find the right team members, however, you’ll need to ensure that every individual has the proper documentation to legally work in the country, which includes obtaining Malaysia work visas.
