New registration forms, digitisation in CAC soon

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) says the two new forms of business registrations provided by CAMA, 2020 will be available for Nigerians by the end of August when the digitisation would commence.

Alhaji Garba Abubakar, Registrar General of the commission, made this known in a statement by Mr Rasheed Mahe, CAC’s Head Media Unit on Friday in Abuja.

He made this known while declaring open a Stakeholders forum on Thursday in Port Harcourt.

Abubakar said the new forms of Business Registrations, Limited Partnership (LP) and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) were becoming increasingly desirable across various jurisdictions around the globe.

He revealed that the Commission was making arrangements for next year to deploy Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software to interact with customers and resolve their challenges 24hrs a day.

The Registrar General also used the forum to highlight the Commission’s ongoing reforms, adding that filing of Statement of Affairs and Biannual Statements were now conducted seamlessly on the Companies Registration Portal.

He maintained that all post incorporation filings were now available online 24 hours on the company registration portal, noting that only two post incorporation filings are yet to be online.

He further stated that the Commission no longer entertains filing of Share transfer as it was alien to the law.

He added that information on Person with Significant Control (PSC) was available free of charge on the CAC website in line with global Anti Money Laundering requirement.
