In South Africa, the registration of entities created through legislation, (companies, NGOs, partnerships, trusts, etc.) with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) is a legal requirement per the New Companies Act of 2008. Mandated by the Act, the CIPC is tasked “… to focus on the registration of companies…”.
Company registration is, however, a time consuming process that is broad in scope and complex due to the evolving nature of SA’s legal system and its many accompanying regulations. As a result, dedicated professionals at LouwCooper specialise in the registration of new companies (and amendments to existing entities) to save clients’ time, money and human resources.
LouwCooper’s practitioners draw on years of experience when guiding registration-related decisions. We are familiar with all legislation (and pending legislation), up to date with SARS’s changing systems and we process registrations effectively the first time. Ours is a cost effective service that delivers peace of mind. It includes:
- New company registrations with the CIPC, previously CIPRO
- Amendments with CIPC
- Company income tax registrations
- VAT registrations
- PAYE, UIF and Skills Development Levy (SDL) applications
- Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) compensation and annual submissions
- BEE applications
