Why choose SDN BHD?

Private limited company (popular known as ‘Sendirian Berhad’ or ‘Sdn. Bhd.’) is the most common type of business vehicle for doing business in Malaysia.

Sdn Bhd provides limited liability protection to shareholders (i.e. business owners). This means company owners are typically not personally responsible for business debts and liabilities.

The limited liability protection protects the entrepreneurs against trading losses, especially when working within an unstable and ever-changing economic climate. Company will be responsible for its own debts and trading losses rather than the shareholders / owners. The shareholders’ own assets will remain protected from business creditors, and their liability will be limited to their share amount.

Register a Sdn Bhd / Company may also offer greater tax advantages such as more tax deductible expenses, tax incentives and lower tax rates.
