How to Set Up a Company in Malaysia
"As one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant and successful economies, Malaysia has long stood out to investors and business people as an ideal place to register a company. 

Incorporating a company in Malaysia has several benefits. Malaysian companies can easily do business with other ASEAN member states, providing access to hundreds of millions of people in rapidly developing economies. Malaysia also offers a variety of interesting tax incentives for entrepreneurs. For example, many companies in the Malaysian federal territory of Labuan are subject to a 3% tax on net profits — a significantly lower profits tax rate than in most other countries. Companies in offshore business areas such as Labuan can also be 100% foreign owned, letting you retain complete control over your business.

Add a reliable, familiar legal system that’s partially based on English Common Law and a simple incorporation process into the equation and Malaysia stands out as an ideal country in which to open a company."
