Malaysia | Trusted Business Advisor Dialogue Series: Transitioning to the New Companies Act 2016

Much has been said about the introduction of the Companies Act 2016. The entire Act, apart from the sections on registration of company secretaries, corporate voluntary arrangements and judicial management, came into force on 31 January 2017. The Act is intended to be more business friendly and ease administrative requirements. Nearly double in length compared to the predecessor Act, the new Act is more prescriptive than its predecessor and introduces radical reform to company laws in Malaysia.
