The Government had set about in late 2004 on a mission to modernise the Malaysian Companies Act, 1965. With the setting up of the Corporate Law Reform Committee (CLRC) and subsequently, the Accounting Issues Consultative Committee together with a litany of sub-committees and various interest groups, it was a lengthy process of deliberations, analysing, comparing the legal environment of multiple jurisdictions & finally, deciding what is best for Malaysia for the years to come. The final report by the CLRC was approved by the Cabinet in 2013 and only in April of 2016 was the bill finally being approved by the Parliament of Malaysia. It is now awaiting the Royal Assent
