Even thoughhe/she has duties, rights and responsibilities as a director, the representative services offered are simply nominee and thing else. For this reason, the nominee director cannot be involved in running company matters such as applying for bank account, operational business, or signing off annual accounts to Malaysian authority.

Fees involved

Fees paid for nominee director services depends on your agreement with the accounting firm. You might also be required to pay additional fees such as refundable deposit in addition to monthly payments. Your company will need to show that it has been audited in the recent past by a firm based in Malaysia.
