Once registered online, we still need to go to the registrar office for thumbprint.
Thank you. This is valuable info.
Can you tell me the difference between:
There’s too many portal registration provided by SSM. I am getting a bit confused.
http://www.ssm-einfo.my is the official website for SSM, you will find all related information and guides from the official site.
ezbiz.ssm.com.my is an online portal where you can log in to renew or register your company online.
After make paymeny and get the Ref. No from the Ezbiz, how and when i get the Business Registration No. ?
Once your business registration is completed, you can check your Business Registration No. under the tab “My Business Services”.
I tried to register online but when it come to the last part there is no box to tick aknowledge or submit button. What goes wrong with my applicatio ya? I already gave one Enterprise company Registered .. how many can u have
You can register for another business even if you already have one. There is no limit.

How can i delete the incentive ???
hi, if this is not my first time using ezbiz to register, been to ssm office once, already activate my account. do I still need to visit ssm office for my second business registration?
Hi Omer, once you have your ezbiz account, you don’t have to visit the ssm office again for your second business registration. You can register directly from the website.
Hi, can I register business for my friends with my ezbiz account? Thanks
Under the owners details section, you can add your friend as the owner of the business. However, your friend must register as an EzBiz user first in order to add them as owners of the business.
Hi, now is lockdown time, but my father shop need to renew. (Already late 28days). Is there any other way to do online payment? I never use this ezbiz b4. Anything I can do at home?? Without go-to ssm?
This is the official reply from SSM: For customers who haven’t activated the online ezbiz id, any business can only be done after the pkp period ends because the verification process for activation id online is only available through the ssm counter. It seems like you have no choice but to wait until the lockdown period ends.
hi Simon, just asking, if I register new business, why I get the status, pending payment although there’s a button to submit payment either tru online or over the counter
Yes, to successfully register a new business, you will need to pay. Since you have an ezbiz account, you can just submit payment through online.
after i key in all me details,why still can’t fo registration, asking me user id.
where should i take my user id?
To register as a Ezbiz user, you will need to complete the registration process by start clicking on this link. Only upon successful verification at the SSM counter or through email, you will be able to log in.
How long do I need to wait for approval after I make the payment online ?
For new business registration, within 1-2 working days. For business renewal, immediate approval.
hi mr simon, i already registered my account.then i also send my ic front ,back , with my face and some documents to the ezbiz emai. but still i didn’t receive any replies or id . why and when i will get my id
You might need to wait. Alternatively, you can reach them via their official Facebook page here
thank you mr.simon k
my new ssm registration was successful.
now i can download my certificate by ezbiz web login,my question is why certificate is not in colour,the SSM on top is in black and white,its should be yellow colour rite?
Great, you successfully registered your SSM through ezBiz. The SSM certificate is in black and white (even if you go to the counter), and it is good enough to display the black and white version. There is another version with color and certified stamp, it is called CTC (Certified True Copy), you can purchase it via SSM e-Info or MYDATA SSM. However, there is no need to get the color version for display purpose.
oh really , thank you so much mr.simon k
Hi, what is the requirement for renewal? Do SSM need things like audited account, annual returns, etc.
For Sole Proprietor business renewal, there is no specific requirement, you just need to bring the money for renewal.
hi there, i try to submit supporting document through email but the email can’t go through. do they have any standard format for the supporting document file? thank you
Try to convert your documents to PDF.
hi mr simon, I want to ask regarding SSM registration. i already registered my account (10/6) and sending the document (IC and other document) to ezbiz email. But until now i didn’t receive any notification email regarding ID activation. when can i get my id activation?
Please be patient due to the large number of online applications during this period. You can also get a confirmation by reaching the SSM officers via the official SSM Facebook page.
Hi Mr. Simon, could I register LLP business through ezbiz?
You can register LLP at MyLLP Portal (https://myllp.com.my/)
Thank You for the insight. A good info for beginner like me.
HI, I’d like to double check with you. Do I still need to visit the nearest SSM office for one-time activation or will they send via email?
Hi, please note that recently SSM has enable online ezBiz account activation via the same website. (thus, you dont need to visit the SSM office) Check out the updated paragraph above regarding how to activate ezBiz account via ezBiz website.
Hi, what is the “Business Info” section & do I have to select Yes? I’m assuming it’s a print out, but are they going to mail this print out? Thanks in advance!
Business Info is a separate document that shows information related to your business and it is not the SSM certificate. You only select yes if you need it as it requires additional cost. After completing the renewal online, you can download both SSM certificate and Business Info in PDF format under the “Renewal History” tab and print it out.
