The Registrar-General of Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Mahmud Bello has said to make startup easier in Nigeria, the commission has started 24 hours company registration.
Bello said this at the CAC Customers’ Forum in Kano, organised in collaboration with the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC).
He said the commission was working towards ensuring that business owners in Nigeria conveniently registered their businesses online within 48 hours.
“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.
Bello said that 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.
