Business owners in Nigeria can now conveniently register their businesses online within 48 hours, Mahmud Bello, registrar-general, Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), has said.
Bello said the commission had started operating 24 hours company registration process to make startup of business easier in Nigeria, adding that the aim of operating the new system was to encourage business owners in Nigeria.
According to him, series of reforms have been implemented by the commission to make it quicker, cheaper and more convenient for Nigerians to start businesses.
The CAC Boss stated this while speaking at a CAC customers’ forum in Kano, organised in collaboration with the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC).
“CAC, as an agency of government involved in the startup of business, has keyed into the federal government’s vision to make Nigeria an easier place for businesses to start and thrive.”
“Our reforms are designed with the MSMEs in mind. For us, a customer is a king and must be treated with royalty.”
Bello said manual application and registration processes would be gradually phased out in the course of the year.
According to him, the manual registration phase out will start with Lagos and Kano as from April 30, where all submissions should be done online.
