注销公司

在马来西亚,注销公司是指从公司委员会(SSM)删除公司名称的过程,从而解散公司并终止其法律存在。这个过程也被称为撤销注册。注销过程涉及几个步骤,包括公告注销公司的意图、等待异议期以及从SSM中删除公司名称。一旦公司被注销,它就不再被视为法律实体,其资产可能被没收给政府。

注销与清盘

注销是一个更简单、正式的过程,但可能会导致公司的资产被政府没收。

清盘则是一个更复杂、更正式的过程,可能涉及法庭诉讼,但它为公司的债权人和股东提供更多的保护。

虽然注销和清盘都可能导致公司的解散,但在过程和法律影响方面有所不同。

注销公司

通过从SSM删除公司名称,需要公司秘书向SSM提交申请。

注销所需的标准:

  • 公司停止运营和业务。
  • 股东经过多数票同意停止运营。
  • 在申请注销时,资产和负债金额接近于零。
  • 所有公司银行账户都已关闭。
  • 向政府机构如雇员公积金(EPF)、国家税务局(LHDN)或社会安全组织(SOCSO)清算未结金额。
  • 向SSM、LHDN和其他政府机构支付所有罚款或和解款(如有)。
  • 最新的公司数据。
  • 没有任何在国内或国外的活跃法律案件。
  • 在抵押物登记处没有任何罚款记录。
  • 没有向股东回报任何利润。
  • 不是控股公司。
  • 不是担保公司。

在马来西亚注销公司需要多长时间?

在马来西亚,注销公司需要多长时间取决于申请的完整性和是否提出异议等因素。一般来说,该过程需要6到12个月的时间。

常见问题

1. 公司被注销后,其资产和负债会怎样处理?
在马来西亚,一旦公司被注销,公司的任何剩余资产或负债将归政府所有。这意味着任何债权人或股东将不能要求任何资产或对公司采取任何法律行动。

2. 如果申请被SSM拒绝怎么办?
如果注销申请被拒绝,公司应寻求专业意见来解决问题,并纠正任何未完成的合规或法律问题。公司可能还需要提供其他信息或文件来支持注销申请,或者在问题得到解决后提交新的申请。

3. 如果申请时,存在会计信息方面的疑问怎么办?
如果提交给SSM的注销申请时,存在会计信息方面的疑问,这意味着SSM在公司的财务报表或会计记录中发现了一些不一致之处。为了解决这个问题,公司可以请特许会计师检查和更新。

4. 在注销处理过程中,如果改变主意,是否可以撤回?
是的,在马来西亚,公司可以在处理申请期间撤回注销申请,如果他们改变了主意。如果要撤回申请,公司需要以书面形式向SSM提交请求,说明撤回的理由和公司继续营业的意图。一旦SSM接收并处理了请求,公司将重新被列入公司注册表,并能够继续运营。

为了确保公司的顺利和合规注销过程,建议公司聘请一位合格和有经验的公司秘书来协助进行。BP-AST提供相关的指导并遵循法律要求,准备必要的文件和决议,与SSM联络,并在整个过程中处理任何可能出现的查询或问题。

What is Depreciation ? Accumulated depreciation is the total depreciation for a fixed asset that has been charged to expense since that asset was acquired and made available for use. The intent behind doing so is to approximately match the revenue or other benefits generated by the asset to its cost over its useful life Types of Depreciation ? 1.Straight-Line  It reports an equal depreciation expense each year throughout the entire useful life of the asset until the entire asset is depreciated to its salvage value.   2. Declining Balance This method where assets are depreciated at a higher rate in the initial years than in the subsequent years. Under this method, a constant depreciation rate is applied to an asset’s (declining) book value each year.   3. Double-Declining Balance  This method is an approach to accounting that involves depreciating certain assets at twice the rate outlined under straight-line depreciation. This results in depreciation being the highest in the first year of ownership and declining over time.   4. Sum-of-the-Years’ Digits (SYD) Under the SYD method, the depreciation rate percentage for each year is calculated as the number of years in remaining asset life for the same year divided by the sum of remaining asset life every year through the asset’s life.   5. Units of Production This method requires an estimate of the total units an asset will produce over its useful life. Depreciation expense is then calculated per year based on the number of units produced.   What is Accumulated Depreciation ?

Presentation of Accumulated Depreciation Accumulated depreciation appears on the balance sheet as a reduction from the gross amount of fixed assets reported.
