Some basics about BizPortal & CIPC e-Services

Company Registration

A company may be registered with or without a company name. When a company is registered without a name, its registration number automatically becomes the company name. Such a company may transact with a trading (business) name, or may apply to add a reserved name at a later stage.

A company registration is R125 for both private company and non-profit companies registered without members. A private company must have at least one (1) director and a non-profit company must have a minimum of three (3) directors. A successful company registration transaction automatically comes with a tax registration number.

Name Reservation

You may apply for between 1 and 4 proposed names during an application process, which costs R50. If your name reservation application is not approved, you will need to apply for new names at another cost of R50.

Quiz – Some basics about BizPortal & CIPC e-Services
4 questions
All companies (including external companies) and close corporations are required by law to file their annual returns with the CIPC on an annual basis, within a prescribed time period. The purpose for the filing of such annual returns is to confirm whether a company or close corporation is still in business/trading, or if it will be in business in the near future. The annual return may be regarded as a type of annual “renewal” of the company or close corporation registration. Therefore, if annual returns are not filed within the prescribed time period, the assumption is that the company or close corporation is inactive, and as such CIPC will start the deregistration process to remove the company or close corporation from its active records. The legal effect of the deregistration process is that the juristic personality is withdrawn and the company or close corporation ceases to exist.
Can a company apply for a change of its financial year end? Yes. A company may change its financial year end by filing a form CoR25 with the CIPC which must comply with the following requirements;- (1) it must be the first change of the financial year end for a specific year, as a company may only change its financial year end once during a particular financial year, (2) the current financial year must not have ended, (3) the new financial year end must be later than the date of the filing of the Form CoR25 with the CIPC, (4) the new financial year end may not result in a financial year longer than 15 months; and (5) the form CoR25 must be signed by an active director, company secretary or other authorised person of the company. In order to determine whether the form CoR25 complies with the above requirements, the day, month and year of the current financial year end, as well as the new financial year end, must be clearly specified on the form. The fee for a change in financial year end is R100.00.
