    Shelf Companies

    Company or CC Yearend and Registered Address Changes

    The CIPC can process various changes, such as the financial yearend date of your company, as well as its registered address. Companies are entitled to one change of financial yearends during any financial year and have to ensure the accuracy of their registered address to avoid penalties. LMS can assist with successfully processing these changes with the CIPC.


    Directors, Auditors and Public Officer Amendments

    The LMS experts can assist with amending CIPC records for changes to company directors, auditors, and public officers. This can be needed due to replacements, resignations, removals or death.

    Reinstatement of Companies and Close Corporations

    The CIPC can automatically deregister a company that has failed to submit annual returns, amongst other reasons. In such a scenario, the company will have to be reinstated. For assistance in re-instating a company or closed corporation, the team at LMS can assist.

    Share Capital Amendments

    A company’s share capital comprises funds contributed by company shareholders. Due to a change in the Companies Act of 2008, the way in which companies are capitalised has been adjusted, which has led to par value shares. LMS can assist if you require assistance with converting company par value shares.


    New Non-profit and External Companies

    Non-profit companies serve public interests and do not earn distributable income. External companies are similar because they do not earn distributable income; however, they are incorporated outside of South African borders. LMS can assist with successful registrations for these entities.

    Business Registration and Name Changes

    South African legislation states that a company can be registered with or without a company name, in which case your entity’s registration number serves as it’s trading name, until formalized at a later date. LMS can assist with easily registering your business’s official name to protect intellectual property interests.
