What forms and documents are required to reserve a company name online in South Africa

Please use the reference number provided when making payment and in all correspondence to us.

As soon as we receive proof of payment, your company names will be submitted for reservation, which can take a few days. The first available name will be reserved by the Companies Commission (Cipc). During the name reservation process, we’ll also email you a POA to be signed by all directors of the company. The signed forms must be emailed back to us with certified copies of all directors and incorporators ID’s (please note that the certified copies of ID’s must not be older than 2 months).


We cannot proceed and start a business registration without these documents, so please send these to us as soon as possible to speed up your registration.


How long will the business registration process take


This all depends on the workload at the Cipc and as per their timeframe. All Cipc company registrations are processed on a first come first serve basis at them and as the registration times changes often, best will be to contact us on 086 127 3727 for more information in this regard.

An affidavit must be signed and stamped at any police station in South Africa. The affidavit format will be emailed to you. It is also a requirement that the registered address of the business must be in South Africa.


Are there any other costs involved


No, we do not charge any additional costs for a Pty Company Registration. Also we will submit up to three times the company name reservation at no additional cost, should your business names be declined for being in comparative with other existing businesses.


How long will my business name reservation take


Generally this only takes a few days, but sometimes it can take little bit longer at the Companies Commission (Cipc) due to workload.
