Registration and Fee Structure

The Memorandum and Articles of Association, constituting the company are forwarded to the Registrar of Companies for registration. These should be accompanied by all relevant documentation, including certified copies of identification documents, references and declarations by trustees where applicable. Evidence of paid up share capital in the form of a bank deposit advice should also be produced.

Upon registration, the Registrar will issue a certificate of registration, showing that the company has been officially registered.  A record of all company registrations is available for public inspection.

The fees payable to the Registrar of Companies for the registration of a company are calculated according to the company’s authorised share capital as indicated in the table below. Registration can be made either in paper format or in electronic format and the fees levied vary accordingly:
