Company name arrangements:
As a new business owner, the following options w.r.t. naming reservations are available to you, for your new Private Company
No company name, using a Trading or Business Name, WHICH IS NOT REGISTERED
Companies have the option of selecting its own business name or trading name, which is not registered with CIPC. There is provision for trading names in our Application Process. There is no fee or specific process attached to this arrangement. The only risk is if another company who owns that name as a Registered Company Name or Trade Mark, legally opposes the use of such a name, you might be asked to stop using it.
No company name, using an enterprise number.
This is what we currently accommodate through our Business Account application process. Nothing prevents the entity from trading with only a Company Registration Number.
Attaching a name (by registering one) after company registration
Companies that wish to attach a name to a company after registration through our Application, need to reserve a name through the CIPC website. This costs R50.
To add this name to the company, a special resolution has to be lodged with CIPC as it is considered an amendment to the company. This costs R250.
