The (CAC) has announced the closure of the manual process for company registration in five states and the Federal Capital Territory.
The Registrar-General, CAC, Mr. Bello Mahmud, identified the state as Enugu, Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, Rivers and the FCT, saying that the move was part of efforts to improve the business environment and make Nigeria an easier place for businesses to thrive.
According to him, the implication of the closure of the manual process was that the commission had now phased out the physical submission of new applications for registration.
As a replacement, business owners would now make use of a company registration portal which has been created to enable them upload their applications.
Consequently, customers processing new registration in these locations shall directly complete the application forms and other relevant information and pay registration fee as well as Stamp Duty where applicable on the company registration portal and thereafter upload all necessary documents through the commission’s upload interface after due execution.
The objective, according to the Registrar-General is to ensure that Nigeria operates at par with some of the best company registries in the world in the delivery of registration services.
