Extension of Time (EOT) on Submission of Annual Audited Report (AAR) dated 1 November 2020 until 31 January 2021
Dear Vendor,
Following the announcement by the Government of Malaysia on 28 May 2021 on the imposition of total lockdown nationwide effective 1st - 14th June 2021 (“Lockdown”), one of the initiative to ease burden of companies which involved Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) was also announced. 
Under the initiative, Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) is granting Extension of Time (EOT) for deferment of Annual Audited Report (AAR) submission for AAR dated 1 November 2020 until 31 January 2021.
Per PETRONAS requirement, vendor must submit the latest AAR to enable Licensing & Registration Section (LRS) to process license & registration applications. Without the latest AAR, vendor will not be able to submit license/registration application in PETRONAS License Management System (PLMS). 
However, following the announcement made by SSM, vendor with financial year end between 1 November 2020 until 31 January 2021 (where AAR is not yet available or not reflected in SSM profile) may submit license/registration applications in PLMS, following the process stipulated below.
Please be informed that in addition to the EOT granted by SSM and in consideration of longer time taken by SSM to process and upload AAR into their system, PETRONAS will allow additional 2 months (from expiry date of EOT by SSM) for vendors to update their SSM profile with the latest AAR to PETRONAS.
