How To Open A Business Name In CAC With N12,000 In Just 2 Weeks Without A Lawyer by Jaay1: 2:45pm On Mar 04, 2016
So you want to open a business and you know nothing of how to get started, well NO WORRIES.
You do not need to find a lawyer, a chartered Accountant or an agent. All you need is an ATM Master Card and an internet connection. The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) now has an on line portal that makes life easy for all potential entrepreneurs and Businessmen in Nigeria.

To register A company the first step is to

STEP 1: Search for availability of Name - Visit http://services.cac.gov.ng/ sign up as a new customer and provide all necessary details accurately. Once you are properly signed in click on 'Name availability Search' type in two names that are creative and uncommon as your proposed business name and try to avoid cliché names. Fill the form with your best Email address and Phone number and submit the form when done. The submission of the form would costs N500 and can be paid using you master card, visa card, verve card, on line banking etc.
The name search would take one to two working days to be approved or disapproved. If disapproved try again With a different and more unique name.

STEP 2: Register the Business name - Once your name has been approved the next step is to register the business name. Log in to your account with CAC and once logged in click on 'action' and download the the letter of approval from the CAC portal, open it and take note of the approval number.
Go back to the website, Click on 'Registration' on the top left of the webpage select business name and paste the number from the approval document on the space provided click on enter. Ensure you know the nature of the business, proprietors of the business and all other relevant information accurately. NOTE: You can 'save and exit' the form at any point where you have difficulties.

* When it comes to nature of the business ensure that you type in three (3) nature of business and it is always a good idea to add General contracts so you do not need to get another business name in the future as, General contracts encompasses everything. (I made the mistake of not adding General contracts and I had to apply with an additional cost of N6000 to get it changed and it was a stressful process)

Fill the form Accurately avoid Mistakes as a Correction would cost you more money and waste your Time.
Now one important thing is[i] When asked if you need additional copies of Certified true copy and documents, select Zero as this is applicable to only those who are registering a limited liability company.[/i]

Submit the form and Pay N10,000 for the business name using you ATM card. You would be given a form to submit to the CAC office in your selection.

STEP 3: Physical Submission - Download and print and make two photocopies of
- All receipt of payment from Remitta and CAC,
- The approval of business name document
- The form you received upon payment for business name
Take these documents with two passport Photographs, N250 stamp duty fee - to be paid into CAC Skye Bank Account (you can do this before going to the office the bank has the account number) and submit for filing with the corporate Affairs commission.


I hope this information was helpful to you. Leave a comment and tell me how it goes for you.

Thanks to author of the thread. I followedthe guide and it worked for me.

My contribution.

Before you perform/pay for name search on the registration portal, you can do a public search of the name you intended to register from the CAC official website.

The public name search is free and will save you the headache of choosing a name already registered.
http://.gov.ng:8080/comsearch/test.php
For physical submission at the state office, you need not print the document from the registration portal after registration of the business name. Reason been, the form is quite different from the ones at thier office and the 250 Naira payment is meant for this same form.

Pay a fee of 250 Naira to Corporate affairs TSA at any bank (I did mine at Skye bank) for form of "business name registration" fill the teller with your approved business name, not personal name. You can as well generate the RRR from remitta website, but don't make the payment on the site ; reason being any payment for form has to be accompanied with bank teller. Collect the remitta receipt and proceed to the state office you chose along with other documents the op mentioned.

Tender the 250 Naira remitta receipt at account office and you will be given " Application for Registration of business name" form. The form must be typed not filled by hand (you will need manual typewriter for this). After filling the form, you will need attestation from a court (Stamp and signature of commissioner of oaths) I paid 250 Naira for this at a state high court.

You will need 3 copies of the 10000 receipts. 1 photocopy of the application for registration form in addition to documents metioned above.

Submit and wait for approval. You can always check your approval status from the registration portal.

No one is yet to answer my first question, while waiting for someone who is knowledgeable to answer the first question, I have another question again.
What is the different between registering a business name and registering a company? And then does it mean when you registered a business name, you can't start doing solid business with it? Also can u open a cooperate business account with any bank with just the registration of business name? Pls I want someone to enlighten me. Very urgent.

Nigerians always love anything that sounds cheap.
So all of this info is just so that one avoid the services of a lawyer that will just charge a token.

Well, I love the way you made it sound so easy to do but I believe when people start going through the process they might wish they used someone already with good experience about it because so many will end up spending more or even wasting so much of their time.

In every way I wish you all luck

I only came here to search in order to collaborate his claim
