Malaysian Business Reporting System (MBRS)

In 2018, Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) announced a submission platform based on the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) format. This submission platform is known as the “Malaysian Business Reporting System” (MBRS) which allows for the annual filing of:


  • Annual Returns (AR) (with effect from November 2018)

  • Financial Statements and Reports (FS) (tentatively with effect from the first quarter of 2019)

  • Certificate for Exempt Private Company and Unaudited Financial Statements (with effect from November 2018)

  • Exemption Applications (EA)  related to the FS and AR applications (tentatively with effect from the first quarter of 2019)


The three (3) main components within MBRS are:

1.       MBRS Taxonomy

2.       MBR Preparation Tool (mTool)

3.       MBRS Portal (mPortal)


In XBRL terms, a taxonomy is a dictionary of reporting labels formulated based on prevailing accounting and regulatory frameworks. Accordingly, the guiding principles behind the MBRS is based on the financial and non-financial scopes of the Companies Act 2016, and applicable approved accounting standards for financial statements namely the Malaysian Private Entities Reporting Standards (MPERS) for private companies or Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards (MFRS) for public companies.

As part of the SSM XBRL initiative, the mTool allows companies to prepare their FS and AR in line with MBRS filing requirements and SSM Taxonomy (SSMxT), which is then submitted digitally to SSM using the mPortal. This excludes banking, financial and insurance institutions regulated under Bank Negara Malaysia which are exempted from MBRS filing for financial statements. MBRS templates have been designed to reflect the presentation of ARs as far as possible, and in facilitating the preparation of these statements in XBRL.

In line with these new requirements, we provide XBRL tagging services as a standalone service or in conjunction with the MBRS AR submission. If you’re looking for a more efficient way to file your AR and FS, our team of experienced MBRS professionals will ensure ease of transition to the new MBRS platform.
