Company Registration & Licenses

While you focus on your core business, we can help you with the tedious process of registering your company, applying and annually renewing your business licence.

 

Company Registration

Registering your business as a company ensures that you are operating a business that legally exists and is recognized by the law. A registered company, as opposed to an unregistered business, enjoys certain rights, benefits and privileges. Some of the benefits of company registration include:

  • Protecting you from personal liability should your business fall on hard times.
  • Protecting the identity of your business. This is because your company will be recognized by the law.
  • It makes it easier to get bank credit and investment from investors.
  • A registered business will be included in your list of assets like a house or a plot of land.
