To be fair, ksl said it's possible*, nothing about it being easy. :lol:

* 1 in a million chance is still possible; probable is a different story.

errr .. not to offend you, but that should be done in your own country .. not in another country :D :D (If you are not a Malaysian, as a retiree, even MM2H doesn't allow you to work .. if I remember correctly .. )

So are you a local here or ???

Nak: yes, possible, not impossible .. :)

On the contrary, yes you can.

Assuming you are a foreigner and you're retiring in Malaysia under Malaysia My Second Home programme (MM2H), you are allowed to work part-time and also own business (subject to the T&C). But there is income tax involved :P

Edit: Typos...

From what I understood from few British old couples staying near my family home, it is always very easy to participate in the programme (and to purchase a house - money is always not a problem).

I personally observed that it is easier for foreign retires to own/run a business in Malaysia than to work part-time, though I don't have the specific info at this point of time.

Yes, you can as long as you have alegit registered SDN BHD aka Pte Ltd with a company secretary and then on apply for EP for you. Usually it is either 2 or 5 years deal EP. You cannot registered as Sole Proprietor or Partnership if you are foreigner. It is almost similar as in SG
