In your advisory capacity to current and potential clients, you need to know how companies are registered in South Africa.


By the end of this event the participant should understand:

  • How to choose the correct type of business out of the options available;
  • How to register the chosen business type correctly and cost-effectively;
  • How to create and maintain an online profile with the CIPC; and
  • How to keep the registered company CIPC compliant.


South Africa has many business entity types available for entrepreneurs to choose from. As a bookkeeping/ accounting practitioner you can increase your income by  becoming a Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) customer who registers businesses on behalf of clients.

In this webinar, join Russel Ngobeni as he takes you through the steps of registering a company correctly through the CIPC. Russel will also discuss what you need to do in order for the registered company to remain compliant. Failure by a registered company to follow CIPC requirements may lead to the entity incurring penalties/ fines or even face de-registration!
