The Malaysian Franchisor is required to register its franchise with the Registrar before it may make an offer to sell its franchise to any person

The Malaysian Franchisor is required to register its franchise with the Registrar before it may make an offer to sell its franchise to any person, unless exempted by the Minister. Failing this, the Franchisor would be deemed to have committed an offence under the Franchise Act. In its application for registration the Franchisor must submit its application in a prescribed form, together with disclosure documents, a sample of the franchise agreement, the operation and training manual of the franchise and a copy of the latest audited accounts, financial statements and reports of the auditors and directors of the Franchisor. It is worth noting that a Franchisor is only considered eligible to apply for registration after having completed a minimum of 3 years in the operation of the franchised business in Malaysia.
