Type of NPOs, NGOs and SEs in Malaysia:

• Foundations
• Trust Funds
• Companies Limited by Guarantees
• Society or Organisation

All of the above fall under the broad charitable works which generally governed by two bodies :

1. The Registry of Societies (ROS) AKA Jabtan Pendaftaran Pertubuhan Malaysia (JPPM) – Regulates NPOs which put in place under Societies Act 1966
2. The Companies Commission of Malaysia (CCM) AKA Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia – Regulates NPOs incorporated under Companies Act 1965

Applications can be easily found on the the Jabatan Kebudayaan & Kesenian Negara (JKKN) website. Each category has its own set of rules and regulations.

NPOs registered under CCM have structured financial statement and auditing requirements under the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards (MFRS).
NPOs established under ROS are encouraged to cohere to these guidelines.
