The new registration number format that consists of 12 digit numbers denote the following:
- First 4 digits - the year of business entity was registered
- Subsequent 2 digits - business entity code
- Last 6 digits - the registration number sequence
Example of the new registration number format is as follows:-
01 - Local company
02 - Foreign company
03 - Business (sole proprietor/partnership)
04 - Local Limited Liability Partnership
05 - Foreign Limited Liability Partnership
06 - Limited Liability Partnership for Professional Practice
During the transitional period, the existing registration number can still be used until further notice. Business entities are therefore not required to amend its existing company letterhead, invoices, signboards and all other printed documents. However, business entities are encouraged to use the new registration number format as soon as possible so that the company is prepared when the new registration number format is fully enforced.
