Last week, I informed you about the launch of online company registration by CAC, Nigeria. That same day, I started the process of registering my business name online on CAC website. Within few days, one of the two names I submitted was approved and I confirmed the approval online without visiting any CAC office.
If you've paid the N500 for the business name search and CAC have confirmed your payment, you can check online if your business names have been approved by CAC by following me through the steps below:
==> Go to: http://services.cac.gov.ng/
==> Click on "Create account" link
==> Click on the Sign In link at the right hand corner of your PC screen
==> Sign in with your username and password
==> Click on the "Name Search" tab
==> Click on the "My Reservation History" tab
Right there, you will see the status of your submitted names. You will see which of the two names is approved and the reservation date. Click on ACTION button to download approval note in pdf.
You can then proceed with the business registration.
I will share info about the business registration process once I complete mine. So, ensure you subscribe to this blog if you don't want to miss the info.
==> Name will be reserved for 60days. So, complete the registration asap.
==> CAC might not send you any email to inform you about the approval of your business names. So, always log in to the portal to check.
What's your experience so far with the CAC online business registration?
