Registering a company with 1-Grid



1-Grid allows an easy company registration tool that automatically registers your company with CIPC via the 1-Grid website.

 

Why use 1-Grid?



Take the hassle out of dealing with CIPC, and do everything through one platform. Our automated system does a company name lookup with the CIPC database and then reserves it for you so you can match it with your website domain name. We will guide you through the process, step by step.



What do we require from you?



Complete the required fields, providing: 

·        Name, Surname, Email address and Cell phone number.

·        Choose a domain name, together with a second and third name of your choice. (Our system will check the domain registry and CIPC databases and reserve the names with both CIPC and the registrar). In the event that the names are all taken, we will contact you for more options.

·        Financial year-end (we recommend February, as it aligns with SARS year-end for individuals)

·        Authorised share capital (we recommend 10,000 but don’t allow less than 100 authorised shares)

·        Directors of the company, providing Full name(s), Surname and Email address of each.

·        Complete payment at checkout

 

Directors are then sent an email requesting the following:



·        A certified copy of South African ID, or passport. 

(Certification involves a Commissioner of Oaths to site the original and then verify the authenticity of the copy by stamping it. This can be done by Attorneys, Chartered Accountants, South African Post Office, Banks, South African Police or any person appointed to be a Commissioner of Oaths by the Chief of Justice)

 

What do you get from us?
