Registering A Company In Nigeria (for Your Information) by austinobee: 3:20pm On Apr 07, 2008
Many people have emailed me from Nairaland asking for the differences in types of company registrations.  I just want to put this here for their help.

Share capital actually refers to the size of the company you want to register.  It also enables other people to buy into your company when it has become very big (you must have heard of sales of shares by banks and other companies like Dangote).  You can either register a Business name, which does not involve share capital or register a Limited Liability Company (Nigeria Limited), or Public Limited Company (Plc), which means plenty of money, or a Church or a Non-governmental Organisation etc.

A company with just Business name registration, can not do much.  There is a limit to the amount of money that can be committed by any organisation, bank or company to your trust.  Banks might not even want to give you a loan.  On the other hand, a Nigeria limited Company (i.e XYZ Nig Ltd for example), can do business anywhere and can easily be granted loans under the right conditions.  Now the Nigeria Limited company option is also graded in terms of share capital.  The larger the volume of share capital, the more responsibility the business can handle.  Share capital can also be increased at any time after the company has been registered.

You can register 100,000 shares, or 1 million shares or 2 million shares if you want to run an Airline ticketing and reservation company.

If you need help in registering a company, you can call me on 07028833735 or email me at augustineosagie@gmail.com.

Please do not register a company for the purpose of scam

Tokstide, to register a company that will be involved in rendering financial services, requires a lot of definition. Do you wish you financial service operations to be recognised by the government? If you do, then there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. Otherwise, you could just register a marketing company and include back end financial services in your profile along with you laundry services and all. Ordinarily, financial service companies are strictly to offer financial services. They require a set amount of share capital, will be subject to ratifications by the CBN and other such requirements.

Does this help? or do you need some more info?

I don't really like to appear as spoiler but I don't also like unwarranted claims.
To register 1m Share at CAC in 24 hours you will need to pay 50k to CAC known as 'one day' while you will need pay around 30k extra for stamp duty, ctc et al. Express is not possible in Lag only in Abuja so if you are in Lag, u need to fly to Abuja or pay some lawyers in Abuja between 15-20k to do it and send it thru air courier on the same day. Assuming but not conceding that one will spend between 100k-120k for 24 hours registration at CAC, how do you make profit if you charge 95k? Please don't lay claim to what is not attainable!
