If you didn't know, I recently registered Mimirello Enterprise! I cannot believe that my business is actually legal now lol. But actually..the reason why I registered it was because I want to open out a special Bank Account just for Mimirello instead of giving out my personal bank account..seems more professional you know. And now that I've registered Mimirello, it made me realize that I have to really really work hard on this website.
There are two types of business you can start: Sole Proprietorship or Partnership. In my case, I registered under the Sole Proprietorship Business for a duration of two years. But if you have a partner in your business, you need to register together at SSM. All you have to bring for this is your identity card.
Two (2) type of Business
1. Sole Proprietorship:
Business wholly owned by a single individual using personal name as per his / her identity card or trade name.
Business owned by two or more persons but not exceeding 20 persons. Identity card name can’t be used as business name.
Steps to Register
1. Sign up on the e-Biz SSM website (https://ezbiz.ssm.com.my/) in order to complete Business Registration Form (Form A). It's better to do it at home first because when you go to SSM to inquiry, they will give you a paper with all the steps and ask you to do it yourself at the SSM computer anyway.
2. Once you're done filling the form online, you can proceed to take a number. When is your turn, you will need to give your Identity Card at the person at the counter and scan your thumbprint.
3. Once this is done, you will have to go back to their computer to fill in more forms. At the end of this form, you will have to download and print the invoice. After you've printed the invoice, go ahead and take a number.
4. Make a payment at the counter. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask the person at the counter. Once it's done, you can leave SSM now while you wait for the confirmation email (along with information on how to download your certificate)
*Don't forget to think of your 3 options for your business name in advanced (Example: "Mimirello Enterprise). Your business may be registered using personal name or using a trade name. (i) Personal Name - Business name using personal name as stated in the identity card is not required to apply for business name approval. (ii) Trade Name - Complete business name approval form.
When can I get my Business Registration Certificate?
Within 1 hour after payment. Don't worry, you will receive an email. Then log in to the e-Biz SSM website to download your your certificate and another document called Form A. I was told that you need to download this documents within 2 weeks so just download it then keep the softcopy in your drive then print out a hardcopy.
