CAC Online Company Registration Launched In Nigeria...Supports Document/File Upload


On Monday 6th of March, 2017, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) launched a 24-hour online company registration platform to fast track its business services to its customers. Dr Olusegun Aganga, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, said that the new online registration portal was developed by CAC to make registration of business in Nigeria easy and accessible to its clients.

According to him:

“Nigerians will no longer have to incur extra costs and will not travel to the CAC’s office to register their businesses,’’ Aganga said. 

Mr Aganga equally added that it was a joint initiative with the Federal Ministry of Communications Technology under Government Service Portal initiative.

In a further explanation, he disclosed that the portal was robust enough to accommodate all platforms such as inter-switch, e- transaction and visa card. Others include Verve card, American express and other forms of electronic payments. Aganga explained that any person that wanted to register his business would now do so easily in any part of the world without physically coming to CAC.

Mr Bello Mahmud, the Registrar General of CAC, said that the new portal would save a lot time in doing business with the commission, adding that the public, other than accredited agents, would carry out transaction directly with CAC.
