Business Nigeria: Registration of Companies Made Easy, Now Fully Online in 6 States [LIST]



Registration of companies in six states will only be done online, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has announced.

The CAC said it has stopped accepting physical submissions of new applications for registration of companies in the locations.

The Registrar-General of the Commission, Mr. Bello Mahmud, said the CAC had fully transited to electronic registration in these states:

  • Abuja,
  • Kano,
  • Lagos,
  • Kaduna,
  • Enugu
  • Port Harcourt.

Nigerians are free to continue manual registration of companies in other offices of the commission. However, 20 locations would be transited to full online registration by the end of the second quarter of 2017.

The CAC also added that Nigerians could now search for company details on its new public search engine, making it unnecessary for manual inquiries on status of companies.

He said the commission had also removed the restriction that only accredited agents such as lawyers, chartered accountants and secretaries could register a company.

For ease of company registration, the CAC has also integrated stamp duty payment to the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to the Commission’s Company Registration Portal (CRP).

This is a good information O!

No restrictions meaning that
-you can register Business Name (enterprises) yourself if you can.

To Incorporate a company and a trustee you can't do it yourself. You need the either of the acredited professionals.

Should you need an advice still. Pls DM.
