Opening a clinic
Legal Procedure to Open a clinic

New MessageOpening a clinic (modified 0 times) izwan

I'm planning to open up a clinic soon. My friends say, to open up a clinic, it's not neccessary to open a company. Just use my APC (Annual Practising Cert) and just apply the license from the local authority (e.g MPSJ) and once I ahve the license, I can straight away open a clinic.

Is it true?; OR

Do I have to register Enterprise or Company?

Is this how you answer someone who asked you properly and humbly?

If my question is rude, ridiculous or irrelevent, why don't you just wipe it off the database, so others won't read and you save some spaces and peace of mind.

I could have asked that with my fellow lawyers out there, what I did here just for some early exposure before I ask some potentially stupid questions to them.

Btw, can you show me the link to "rules and regulation" of this forum? Maybe I've forgotten to read it, or maybe you never read nettiquettes on the Net.

Just ignore the beckside peddlar Ah Seng.He is subhuman anyway.
You are right, just as lawyers, doctors are regulated by their professional bodies and you do not need to register a company.

We should all now just ignore what this AhSeng has said or trying to say in this forum. Don't reply his comments... Let him "talk" to himself only. He will be very happy if someone replying his posting, that's his intention!!!

I should say AhSeng is talking sense this time, as he mentioned about registering a Partnership "Sdn. Bhd" (Private Limited Co.).

Should financial problem arises like: Bankrupcy etc...You woould be responsible to a Limited extent.

I have a question here. Is the below answer is only for operating the clinic in west malaysia or both applicable to east malaysia as well. One of my client, a practising doctor, ask about can he operate his clinic under "sdn bhd". We have this query is because we only see the clinic operate under "sole prop" or "partnership" here in sarawak. Or is there anyway i can get the guideline for this? Thank you.

Usually Clinics will operate under sole proprietor or partnership. This is because to incorporate a company, the yearly maintenance cost is much higher as you are required to retain a auditor and company secretary. The issue usually boils down to cost factor. However, if you are looking at exposure of liability, then, one should consider setting up a private limited company.

Hope this information help

My advise to you is to form a company which will own the clinic and employ you. The directors of your company can be individuals such as your wife or relative or accountant or some else. The purpose of using a company rather than yourself is that your liability is then limited.

If say you perform a procedure on a patient and the patient suffers permanent damage or is incapacitated, their insurer or they themselves in thir own right could sue you for large amounts of money. As an individual your liability is unlimited. As a corporation (company) your liability is limited to the value of the company in its paid up capital amount. Additionally your ability to wind up and to move on unscathed is far greater than it would be if you were operating as an individual.

It always pays to do a risk assessment of your position when considering such options. Medicine and the practice of medicine is fraught with risk.
