Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

BY OREDOLA IBRAHIM

The first part of this registration process can be found here.

Oh! Yeah, congratulations, your name reservation request has been approved! You are now ready to go to the NEXT LEVEL – where you make the payment for your business name and claim it as your own. Unfortunately, if you get the mail that your name reservation request has been disapproved instead, you need to go back to STEP 4 and edit your name.

If you are re-editing your name, do take note that it is like you are doing it all over again, so you have to pay your name reservation fee of N500 again and this applies every time your name gets disapproved.

However, you can reduce the chances of getting your name disapproved by NOT going for names that are capable of misleading as to the nature and extent of its activities; undesirable, offensive or contrary to public policy; identical with or similar to the name of a registered company unless the registered company is in the course of dissolution and consents in writing of the directors obtained; contain the phrase “Chamber of Commerce” unless it is a company limited by guarantee; would violate any existing trademark or business name unless with the consent of the trademark or business name owner; and/or would violate any incorporated trustee unless with consent of the trustees.

Now that your name reservation request has been approved, it is time to go to the NEXT LEVEL.

STEP 8

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

Log in to your dashboard with your username and password. Once you are logged in to your dashboard, you will see a box tagged “Reserved”, there you will see and download your “Approval Notice”.

STEP 9

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

On the menu, click on “Company Registration”, you’ll see a drop-down, click on “New Registration”.

STEP 10

Here, you will see a notice that states “Kindly note that by starting registration as a public user, you agree to become a director, proprietor or trustee as the case may be.” what that simply means is that you can only register a business for yourself with your account.

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

If you must help someone register their business then you have to (create an account in their name) do it with their account. Next, it will ask for your “Availability Code”. Go back to the approval notice you downloaded in STEP 8, there you will see the code. It is a number, all you have to do is copy and paste it in the field here.

STEP 11

It takes you directly to where you fill out further details about your proposed business. This step is similar to what we went through under STEP 4.

STEP 12

COMPANY DETAILS Section

Under this you will see “CLASSIFICATION”, select ‘Business name’ in the drop down.

You will also see “BUSINESS COMMENCEMENT DATE”, pick the date from the calendar

And lastly you will see “ADDRESS”, confirm it is correct.

Then you need to save and proceed to the next section.

STEP 13

NATURE OF BUSINESS Section

You will see a drop-down. It is a list of business sectors. So, you will choose the one that most applies to your business.

You will see a field beneath it, you can input a word or two that explains your business e.g Information and Communication.

However, if you are the type of businessman that just ‘hustles’ everything together, you can choose and input “General Contract and Merchandise”.

When you are done with this section, save and proceed to the next section.

STEP 14

PROPRIETORS Section

Here your details is already there since the owner of the account is automatically a proprietor of the business. However, if you do have a partner, you can go ahead and add them as a proprietor. You’ll see “Add A Proprietor” then proceed to fill up their details like Name, Telephone, Email, Gender, Date of Birth, Contact Address and a means of identification just like in STEP 6.

STEP 15

CERTIFIED TRUE COPIES Section

Here is where you choose if you want more than a copy of the Business Name Registration certificates and of course you pay 5,000 Naira for every additional copy. So, I think you should just leave the section and not fill anything. Just proceed through to the final section where you will have to pay N5,000 through REMITA.

STEP 16

Once your payment is successful. Login back to your dashboard. Under “Company Registration” you will see your Business name under “Pending Approval”. Click it. That brings you to the “My registration section” and opposite your name, you will see “Documents”, click on it.

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

STEP 17

From the step above, you will be taken to the page where you will download the file named “Application Form for Business Name”. The form has already been filled with your details. You just have to do three things after printing it out:

  1. Affix your passport
  2. Sign the document
  3. There’s a space for “Commission for Oaths” to sign. Take it to the any court nearby or a justice of peace and get it signed for between 300 to 1,000 Naira depending on where you are.Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

STEP 18

Once you have completed the form, you will be required to scan it back in one pdf and upload at the “Document Upload Service” where you can get to from “Company Registration” menu.

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

STEP 19

At the “Document Upload Service” page, you will be requested to enter your “Availability Code”, the same one we used in STEP 10. Then select your “Originating Office” where you’d like to collect your certificate when it’s ready. Complete the robot check and click on “Begin”.

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

STEP 20

Now you will be taken to where you will be able to upload all the required documents. The documents you will be uploading are the following: a. Business Name Registration Form that you filled and scanned b. The Approval Notice you downloaded in STEP 8 c. The payment receipts for the N500 and the N5,000 d. Your means of identification. You upload in the following order:

  1. First you browse to select the document
  2. Choose the document type
  3. Click “Attach”

And you will do that for each of the documents.

Simple steps to register your business with CAC for N5,000 only (Cont’d)

After you are done with the step above, you should get a mail in less than 48 hours that your business has been registered! And you can proceed to the CAC office address (you specified earlier while registering) with the hardcopy printouts of all the documents you uploaded in STEP 20. All you have to do is tender those documents and you will be given your Business Name Certificate.

Congratulations! You are now a proud owner of a new business…. I mean, it is your turn to move to the NEXT LEVEL. If you have any question, please feel free to use the comment, I will respond to all your questions.

Yomi Black & Toke Makinwa continue their drag season, Yomi responds

Yomi Black & Toke Makinwa continue their drag season, Yomi responds

Filmmaker, Yomi Black, has replied Toke Makinwa who dragged him on her IG page over his controversial post about her.

 

Trouble started on Sunday, December 8th when Yomi Black reposted an Instagram post by Digital marketer, Soji Ogunnaike, who dared the media personality to openly show how she can afford her lifestyle.

 

Toke Makinwa found Yomi’s post distasteful and took to her IG page to drag him, sharing screenshots of his meassages to her.

The media personality disclosed that they fell out after he asked for free TM bags for a product placement on his production which she turned down. Toke who recounted feeding Yomi’s crew while on his movie set, added that he has always taken and has never given anyone.

 

Toke Makinwa wrote;

 

Excuse me while I drop my crown for 5 minutes.
Inside life…… this life is a pot of beans. Now this is a public service announcement, if I have ever supported you with my time, platform, money, and more pls don’t ever come for me. You look stupid when you try. Some of you will be all up in the DM looking for favors yet want to sound Intelligent in these SM streets. Should we really tell Nigerians how you went from licking my ass to dragging me online?

This world we live in is strange, I have messages from you like this one, I would usually look away cos you are not the first but Yomi, you ungrateful fool, I have worked with you on projects with only a promise of “i”ll pay you back when we find sponsors”, which you never did, and I let it go, I have stuck my neck out for you when stylists, designers and the likes wanted your head on a platter cos you made them work without pay, when all you had was a dream, I was willing to support you with my platform, I have fed cast and crew on your shameless sham of a set and you have the nerve to come for me????

I have receipts of how much of a loser you are but I’ll leave this one here, you asked for free TM bags for a product placement on your production which I turned down cos I’m sorry your platform does nothing for me, and I am running a business, I asked you to pay for it and you got mad, you’ve always taken but never given to anyone, who have you helped??? Who have you supported?

it’s always been the other way round, you couldn’t get a freebie and now i am your enemy? Tell me, if I’m everything you say I am, why do you want to associate yourself with me? I was such an inspiration to you in private huh???? See my people hustle oooo so you don’t go from “you’re such an inspiration” to this #MCM #yourmcmisreaching

 

Well, Yomi took to his IG page this morning to reply her. Read his response below

 

On this issue, I would like to say I understand why Toke responded the way she did.
The bloggers set a trap for her and she fell for it.
I admit I saw Soji Ogunaike’s comment on Instablog and I thought it was very interesting, especially since Soji dared her to show how she made a living.

I shared it because I really thought there was a lesson there.
In the post I made it clear that it was copied from Soji Ogunaike, but the bloggers reported the story and cropped out the credit to insight a war between Toke and I. They even made the headlines more interesting by saying I (Yomi Black) dared her to show how she earns her living.

The truth is Toke and I go way back, because of our friendship, we have done a few projects in the past. As a young entrepreneur, you have to leverage your friends when you are growing.

 

All of those projects benefited both of us in many ways, I remember at least one that benefitted us financially (a YouTube video campaign for Chicken republic in 2013). I also remember that I did a series of photoshoots for her to launch her Vlogs on YouTube.
Fast forward to 2017, I was creating a big budget Tv series #MRBADMUS, I had loads of opportunities to promote products, and naturally I thought of my friends doing well. I reach out too many of them and offered to promote their brand on the TV show for free. I reached out to Toke especially because I wanted to compensate her for some of the projects we worked on in 2013 that did not yield financially, but at that time, Toke was at the peak of attention, so I am guessing she didn’t need it.
So naturally I gave that opportunity to someone else.

 

The truth is I do love Toke and her ambition inspires me, only a few people can do what needs to be done to get the Job . I am one, so I know the scarifies.

 

Toke asked me a question that got me thinking “who have you helped?” The truth is I am a pillar of support to many people, and I do it without the cameras.

 

Finally, I will say to Toke, I do not take offense with your backlash, I understand that the bloggers are to blame, I only wished you used that opportunity to tell us how you really make a living. Especially for the young ones watching”.

Mompha regains freedom after meeting bail

Mompha has walked out of detention after perfecting the bail conditions handed to him by a Lagos High Court.

 

The internet celebrity who was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on 14 counts bordering on fraud, money laundering and running a foreign exchange business without the authorisation of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), was granted a N100m bail on Friday, November 29.

 

The Dubai-based Nigerian businessman was admitted to bail with one surety who must be a landed property owner by Justice Mohammad Liman, who ordered him to deposit his passport with the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court and report at the EFCC office every fortnight to show that he has not left the country.

 

Mompha has now perfected his bail conditions as he was spotted with his friends earlier today after regaining his freedom.

Yomi Black blasts Toke Makinwa over lavish lifestyle

Yomi Black has challenged OAP Toke Makinwa to reveal to the world how she is can afford her lavish lifestyle.

Cardi B’s visit stirred many hearts with different reactions. The Nollywood filmmaker’s outburst is one of them, coming after the OAP blasted Nigerians over their support for Cardi B and her actions while in the country.

According to Toke Makinwa, Nigerians supported Cardi B just because she is an American celebrity, but they would rather pull down a Nigerian celebrity if they do the same.

But in his reaction which was copied, Yomi Black mentioned that Cardi B is real and she doesn’t deny being a stripper, unlike some people he knows who are motivational speakers on social media despite something questionable about them.

Yomi Black wrote:

“You see why people love someone like Cardi B? She owns her shit, just like the Kardashians. You get what you expect. She hasn’t denied being a stripper or enjoying showing her body. She doesn’t go around forming motivational speaker and quoting Bible passages on social media like some Saint.

Dear Toke, I dare you to openly show how you can afford your lifestyle. And don’t come with shit like you’re and actress or OAP because we all know how much both earn. Also don’t spew shit about endorsement deals because we are in marketing communications and know how much these deals are worth. This has got to be the most hypocritical post of 2019.”

AKA shades Nigerians again, "We had the World Cup

South African rapper, AKA, is going head-to-head with Nigeria again as he throws a subtle shade at Nigerians on Twitter

His shade came after a Nigerian tried to mock South Africans over Cardi B’s visiting Africa and coming only to Lagos, Nigeria and Accra, Ghana.

Her visit to Lagos was used as a tool to troll the light-skinned South African rapper.

He took to his Twitter account to throw the heavy shot, writing that South Africa had the World Cup and the excitement wasn’t ground-breaking, while Nigeria only had Cardi B they almost brought down the cloud.

He wrote; “We had the World Cup, You had Cardi B. There are levels.”

As expected, this tweet has generated a lot of backlash from Nigerians towards AKA and he is being currently roasted by patriotic Nigerians.

See their exchange below;
