CAC Public Search Website Lets You Check Online If Company or Business Name Has Been Registered

A public search form has been integrated into CAC Nigeria online portal, to enable anyone search CAC records for registered incorporated trustees, company or business names and those undergoing business registration.

If you want to register your company or business name with CAC Nigeria, you can also use the CAC public name search portal to check if your proposed business name has been registered by someone else or not.

How To Use CAC Public Name Search Form

  • Go to :
  • Enter the name you want to search
  • Tick the “I’m not a robot” and solve the captcha if prompted
  • Click “Search”

If you enter a registered company name in the CAC online search form, the search result will display the company registration number, the company name, company address and date of incorporation (registration).

If no registered business name in CAC database contains your search term, the form will return a blank result.

If your proposed business name has not been registered, you can proceed to submit it for reservation at CAC online website.

  1. Please I need help. I have submitted about four different names that has been rejected. When I search for them in the cac name search, it returns blank and it writes “refine your search value”. I don’t know what this means but I take it the names are free hence my going ahead to pay. What is the meaning and how do I know if the names are free. Thank you.

  2. What devilish country is this where nothing works except fraudulent practices?
    I’ve paid for more than 5 name searches and denied. Yet the public search engine never works. Really, the country Nigeria should never have been in existence!
