SME Status Registration

Is the SME Status Certificate a necessity for SMEs operating in Malaysia?

This status recognition is provided by SME Corp. Malaysia in order to assist businesses in participating in programmes or in applying for incentives and support specifically targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
This certification is not a requirement or mandatory regulation for operating businesses in Malaysia

The SME Status Certificate confirms a firm's size as an SME. Companies/businesses with the status are entitled to apply for programmes, as well as assistance and incentives specially for SMEs. However, it does not give an automatic approval for companies/ businesses to participate in the programmes or get incentives.
