Good Evening and thanks for your question. Can you just clarify or supply more information please. What exactly are you looking to open and for what purpose? It sounds like you're referring to Company Registrations which I can help you with, I just want to be sure were on the same page. Regards Shaie
Perfect - I've got you now. So simply put you should register a new professional Inc. with the CIPC (Company Registration Office) (visit this link: http://www.cipc.co.za/), once registered you will nominate 1 or more directors who will then be able to open bank accounts, get registered with the HPCSA (see link: http://www.hpcsa.co.za/). I would suggest that you contract a firm who specialises in CIPC registrations for the Inc. Its not very expensive or time consuming. I registered a new (Pty) Ltd for myself a short while ago and I think the whole process cost like R2k and took around 3 weeks.
Hi Again - thanks for coming back to me. I ma happy to go into as much detail as you require. To be clear, there is no distinction in South Africa Corporate Law for the types of business that the entity will be housing except for very broad categories as defined in the Companies Act i.e. For Profit Company and Not For Profit Company; Your Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) will set out the rules by which your company will operate. Once registered you can then contact the HPCSA for registration of the business and entity as approved and authorised bodies under their rules. The process is simple - its administrative and simply requires filling in forms and complying with their requirements. I'm not sure how much more detail you require?
