Total Group Berhad

Information about the Company
Total Group prides itself as a new-age professional business service provider. Formerly known as TWS Group, the company was established in 2003 as a total financial service group dedicated to serve corporations of all sizes and industries, helping them achieve their financial goals with its expertise in business advisory. The company stores a reservoir of expertise in areas of Accounting, Assurance, Tax Services, Financial Advisory, Business Advisory, Digital Solutions and other Services.

The company was initially founded by Mr. Loh Seong Yew and Mr. Yeoh Han Yeow in 2003 as a new start-up. The company then began to flourish under the inspirational leadership of Dato’ David Khoo who joined in 2014 and spearheaded the company as the Group Managing Director. Five years later, Dato’ David Khoo’s blueprint to success has come to fruition when he successfully established a consortium of subsidiaries and formed Total Group. The mission of Total Group is to be the cornerstone in every business under its professional stewardship, providing total and comprehensive financial services in a manner that is simplified and inspired by innovation, hence ensuring every organization’s sustainability and continual growth.

The vision of Total Group is to be the most preferred and established professional service provider in Malaysia, the first to be publicly listed in the country, and the most forward-looking firm which offers employee stock ownership as it grows.

Corporate Culture & Company Activities
The immaculate combination of the right skills, knowledge and professionalism of the staff is the key to the company’s success. Total Group is widely known for assisting companies in their business establishments and maintaining them in good standing. What sets the company apart is versatility. The staff always considered themselves as not only a business advisor but also a partner to their clients, and for that, they have done way more than recommending solutions.

The team is committed to working closely with their clients and shares mutual goals. They hold tight to their professional integrity while simplifying the process of compliance management to allow their clients to be at ease with the information and solutions they provide to help them make informed decisions and appropriate judgments. The team is also committed to providing rapid responses to attend to various inquiries and requirements from customers. Total Group is constantly in touch with technological advancement to be able to innovate, thus creating streamlined processes, expedite procedures, greater nimbleness and dexterity.
Achievements & Impact
From a relatively small and unknown firm in Penang with less than 5 employees, Total Group has grown to more than 100 strong workforce led by more than 10 senior chartered accountants within 6 years. From a local company (Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Labuan), Total Group has made its mark in several leading Asian countries such as Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Singapore, as well as associate partners abroad. The company has grown into a multinational corporation and is well on its way to become the first-ever professional services provider to be publicly listed on the stock exchange of Malaysia. The meteoric success of Total Group is hugely attributed to its visionary leadership and unremitting investment in human capital.

Talents from radically different backgrounds are brought together in a concerted effort to deliver solutions that are often superior and capable of fulfilling every great expectation. It brings Total Group great pride to say that every single one of its clients is profoundly satisfied and entrenched with its services in comfort and confidence.

Over the years, the flawless reputation of Total Group as a professional consultant is the epitome of the highest quality in every aspect, as the company work its way towards the cream of the crop in this field. Known by all for being meticulous, comprehensive, responsive, friendly and true to their words, their unrivalled reliability has launched them to stardom.

Future Direction
Going down the road, Total Group has its vision trained on fintech, financial blockchain, digital finance and e-Solutions. The company has successfully developed ground-breaking smart applications, namely “e-TAX” in 2018 and e-TOTAL (Formally known as e-JEJAK) in 2020, linked to the ubiquitous government app MySejahtera, pioneering the market in artificial intelligence data collection in a mechanism ecosystem that could help manage taxation, audit and accounting effortlessly and electronically. The company also had strong backings from “Silver Worthiness”, a Mainland Chinese government-linked corporation, on the receiving end of a RM50 million funding to expand its business further.

Total Group will have its own urban business towers in Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Malacca in the coming years. The company’s subsidiary TOT will also be an IPCO (Initial Public Coin Offering) in China in the near future.
