For any enquiries on business license application, kindly note there will be a preliminary consultation fee of RM500 to be paid upfront before we can proceed with the said consultation, due to in depth research required on case to case basis and our Senior Consultant will speak to you once payment is received. This applies to enquiry via email, phone call or walk-in.

We wish to highlight to you that we are unable to assist you on most of the licensing requirement for your business as it requires in-depth industry knowledge and normally the licensing department would like to deal with the business owners directly.

However, we could assist in research for the licensing requirement applicable specifically for your business and our fee is ranging from RM2,000.
