Company Registration

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. There are five types of companies that you can register. If you wish to run a franchise business, you would register a private company. If you wish to register a church, you would register a non-profit company. A private school could be registered as a private company or non-profit company, depending on its objectives. An association of professionals such as lawyers, doctors, civil engineers etc, may be registered as a personal liability company.
