WRT License


    Companies with foreign ownership that are engaged in distributive trade are required to obtain a wholesale and retail trade (WRT) license from the Ministry of Domestic Trade Cooperative & Consumerism (MDTCC) before they can apply for an Employment Pass or VPTE. “Distributive trade” refers to wholesale and retail trade of goods and services. Other companies with foreign ownership that are not engaged in distributive trade do not require a WRT license

    The requirement of paid up capital for obtaining WRT is RM 1 Million. So foreigners must be careful while registering companies that their company is being registered with 1 Million Paid up capital or only authorized capital.

    NOTE: if foreign companies appoint any LOCAL MALAYSIAN DIRECTOR with 50% shares, then they will automatically be considered exempted from WRT Approval.
