Labuan Company as Investment Holding of Sdn Bhd Company

Previously, we compared Labuan Companies and local Malaysia incorporated Sdn. Bhd. Companies. In this article, we would like to cover how Labuan Companies can be structured to include Sdn. Bhd. Companies. This is relevant for local Malaysian businesses already domiciled in Malaysia, looking for the best way to structure their businesses going forward. Especially for owners with MULTIPLE businesses!

This is relevant for new businesses looking to locate in Malaysia [by setting up a local Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. company] whilst seeking to realize the benefits offered by Labuan.

Read on to find out why Labuan and how!

Because of the flexibility of Labuan entities, one can set up a Labuan entity as an Investment Holding Company. This Labuan Investment Holding Company will act as a parent company of local Malaysian Sdn. Bhd. companies, holding 100% ownership.
