We almost got fined RM50,000 - The SSM Nombor Alert - A Lesson Learned

Dear Zoewebs Community,

We hope this message finds you well.

Recently, we encountered a situation that we believe is essential to share with you, our valued users, and fellow businesses.

The Email from SSM: A Wake-Up Call

A few days ago, we received an email from the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) regarding the requirement to display our SSM number not only on our website but also on our official social media pages.

This came as a surprise to us, as we initially assumed it was only applicable to websites.

Spread the Word to Avoid Fines

We understand that compliance can be tricky, and oversights happen. 


However, SSM is serious about enforcing these regulations, and fines of up to RM50,000 can be imposed. 


We urge all companies to take this matter seriously and update their social media pages promptly.

What should you do now?

To facilitate a smoother transition for everyone, we kindly request you to:


  1. Update your official social media pages with your SSM number.
  2. Share this information with fellow businesses to ensure widespread awareness.

Additional Information

For your information, it is advisable to conduct checks on your business premises and ensure that


(i) the business registration certificate is displayed,


(ii) the name and registration number are displayed on signboards, and


(iii) invoices/payment receipts are displayed at each location where business is conducted. This is a requirement under the Act regulated by the SSM.
