What is company deregistration? The company deregistration is mainly due to the company's losses, directors and shareholders who are not willing to continue to operate the company and cancel the company without operating. The cancellation of a Malaysian company requires the company's shareholders or directors to apply to the Malaysian Companies Committee (CCM) for deregistration of the company, and the rights to deregister the company can be obtained through Chapter 549 of the 2016 Companies Act. If a company is in a business-out situation, the company owner has the right to deregister under the company law.
