Business Registration Services Explained

Registration Of Companies / Businesses

Business / Company registration has been made easy over the years. At Makkah Internationl, we will help you carry out these processes seamlessly and on time. Below are the requirements for registering a business/company in Kenya.

  • Proposed Company/Business name.
  • Objectives of the Business
  • Names of the Directors, contact details and email
  • Proof of Identification
  • Passport Photo
  • Form CR1 – This is the company registration form
  • Form CR2 – This is the Memorandum of company with share capital
  • Form CR8 – This is the notice of registered address form and Statement of Nominal capital by all Directors.
Change Of Directors

Change of Directors is the process which aims at replacing or adding director(s) or updating directors shareholding value. You can find the requirements for changing of directors below

  • A letter of resignation from a director expressing his or her desire to quit the organization
  • The Registrars of Companies demand an Affidavit of Resignation
  • In the minutes of a board of directors meeting, the resignation was disclosed (notice that all directors must sign the extract of the meeting minutes).
Processing Of Company Pin & Tax Compliance

A company pin is a personal identification document number used while doing business with Kenya Revenue Authority, other Government agencies and services providers.

A Tax Compliance certificate(TCC) is an official document issued by KRA as a proof that the bearer is filling returns and paying taxes.

You can leave these processes to us and focus on key areas of your business.

Generation Of CR12, Company Linking & Processing Annual CR12

The official CR12 document, which is released by the Company Registrar, contains information about a company's shareholding or directorship. The form lists the company's directors or owners together with the number of shares that each owns. Additionally, the postal address, registration date, and nominal shares of the firm are listed. The Company Registrar attests to the accuracy of the company's registry records by issuing this document.

Linking of a business is the process through which a company proprietor, director/shareholder or a Certified Public Secretary (CPS) provides details pertaining to the company online to the Business Registration Service (BRS) for verification with the details that already exist at the BRS.

A CR12 is an official confirmation by the Registrar of Companies in Kenya as to whom the directors/shareholders of a company are.

All these procedures can prove tiresome & time consuming if you are multi-tasking and have to beat your businesses deliverables. Makkah comes in strategically at this point to bridge the gap.

Converstion of Business Name to Limited Company

In Kenya, most new businesses first register as a business name before becoming companies. In Kenya, the procedure to change a business name into a company is typically started so that the firm can benefit from the following, among other limited company benefits:

  • A shareholder's responsibility is constrained to the amount of their share contribution because a limited company in Kenya is regarded as an independent legal entity.
  • In the event of a shareholder's death, they outlive the shareholder's life because the shares can be transferred to another corporation.
  • The great competitive advantage of a limited company enables higher profitability.
  • A Limited Company offers a more expert appearance. Because a Limited Company offers greater legal protection, some industries, contractors, or agencies may want to engage with one.
Filing of Annual Returns

An annual return is not a financial document — it's a record of publicly available information about your company that appears on the Companies Register. That information, which includes your address and details of directors and shareholders, must be updated each year through an annual return.
