The Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, will no longer accept physical submission of new applications for registration in six state offices, according to Mr. Bello Mahmud, the Registrar-General of the Commission.
Speaking at a news conference, Mahmud listed the six offices in which only online applications now apply to include Enugu, Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja.
He said: “Customers processing new registration in these locations shall directly complete the application forms and other relevant information and pay the registration fee as well as Stamp Duty on the Company Registration Portal.”
“Customers can upload all necessary documents through the Commission’s upload interface. These services can be accessed on: www.cac.gov.ng and https://services.cac.gov.ng
The Registrar-General explained that the move to go fully online is to guarantee uninterrupted availability of services and ensure efficient service delivery to customers.
“The online registration is cheaper, faster and convenient as transactions can be conducted from the comfort of homes and offices,” Mahmud said.
In order to ensure seamless operation of the Company Registration Portal and zero downtime, Mahmud said that the Commission has concluded the process of transferring the hosting of its main database and operating software to Main-One-Data Centre in Lagos.
“This will ensure 99% uptime thus ensuring efficient registration services,” he said.
