Hiring Employees/Contractors in Malaysia

While not one yet of the absolute top international business hubs, Malaysia still offers a very attractive infrastructure for emerging companies, helped greatly by the fact that its government policies are extremely pro-business, corporate tax rates are not too high, and it has liberalisation programs in place that encourage foreign investment. Malaysia’s economy and industries are growing by the day, and it is a popular destination for foreign workers and businesses alike.

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan regions in the area; its location also happens to be very beneficial, offering favourable trade routes with Australia and Indochina, and since it is one of the prime business destinations, there has been a lot of investment into the city, helping it grow and flourish.

Employing foreign staff in Malaysia for your business can be rife with pitfalls – there are a lot of regulations, complex labour laws, and limited quotas for the number of foreigners working in a Malaysian-based company, as well as the fact that only very high skilled positions are generally allowed for non-locals. While it is possible to avoid some of the difficulties of permanent employees by hiring contractors, freelancers, and through umbrella companies, its is still not an easy task.
