When a name is approved, you are given maximum of 30 days to lodge registration documents. If you don’t register the Company within the 30-day period, a penalty is charged.

Step 2 – Registration (3-5 days): Submit the Company’s Memorandum & Articles of Association, C.R.14 (Register of Directors and Company Secretary) and C.R.6 (Confirmation of address of the Company) for registration of the Company.
