Here’s how to register your new business online

Setting up a new business just got a lot easier, thanks to the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission’s (CIPC) partnership with Nedbank.

Both clients and non-clients can now access the online company registration feature on Nedbank’s site if they wish to register a new business or formalise an existing enterprise.

The application fee for qualifying applicants is R125 to register a company.

This is in addition to the same feature at FNB launched in 2013.
