How to register and maintain a business 2020

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!
