Register your company

You can register a company as a non-profit company or profit company with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC). A company is a legal person which has capacity and powers to act on its own. The law sees a company in the same light as a natural person.

Profit companies may be incorporated under different types of companies under the Companies Act. More information on the different types of companies and the registration procedure can be found under Frequently asked questions.
