What are the Yearly Compliance Cost for a Sdn Bhd?

As a company secretary, I always get questions like: how much is the yearly cost for a Sdn Bhd, how much is the pricing for secretarial fees, how much is the accounting fees, how much do I need to budget for audit and tax services?

This should be one of the main factors for new startups to determine whether they are ready to set up a Sdn Bhd as well as every year’s budgeting for existing company directors.
