Apply for permits online, traders and business owners told

Ampang Jaya Municipal Council is directing people to use the MPAJ Intelligent Community online portal for council matters.

TRADERS and other business operators in Ampang Jaya are now required to renew their business licences through the local council’s online system as part of its “Ampang Jaya Smart City” initiative.

Those applying to renew their licences and permits for next year will have to use the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council’s (MPAJ) Intelligent Community Online System, said council president Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim.

“The renewal counters will no longer accept cash payments, so applicants will have to log into the system to renew their licences,” he said.

Operators will have until Dec 31 to renew their licence, failing which they can be issued compounds of between RM200 and RM700.

MPAJ had previously announced that it was going paperless, which meant that bills such as assessment tax, would no longer be posted to property owners.

Instead, owners need to check and pay their assessment tax via the council’s online portal.

Separately, Mohd Fauzi said MPAJ had issued temporary business permits to 290 unlicensed traders to help people trying to earn a living, as many had lost their income during the Covid-19 pandemic and the movement control order (MCO).

“A total of 600 permits are available for 29 locations identified.

“This is provided that applicants adhere to the usual health and safety requirements,” he said after chairing the council’s monthly full board meeting.

This is in line with a programme by the Selangor government where temporary business licences are issued by the local councils to Malaysians who wish to set up roadside stalls to sell home-cooked food.

This move is to ensure that they operate legally and adhere to regulations set by the respective local councils.
