What is company registration in Zimbabwe?

In Zimbabwe, company registration is the process of legally incorporating a business either as a Private Limited Company, Private Limited Company, Limited By Guarantee or any other business structure as stated by the Companies and Other Business Entities Act (Chapter 24:32).

What is a Private Limited Company.

A Private Limited Company is a business structure that is legally separate from its owners (shareholders). The main benefit of registering this business structure is to enjoy ‘limited liability’ which means the owners are not personally liable for the debts and any financial losses of the business. Other benefits are enhanced corporate image, tax efficiency, investment and lending opportunities, perpetual succession and ease of selling the business.

What is a Private Business Corporation?

A Private Business Corporation is a business structure that is common with small businesses and individuals such as consultants, doctors, engineers, etc. who operate as individuals but want to enjoy ‘Limited Liability’. The main benefit of registering this business structure is that you can register a Private Business Corporation as an individual as the sole member of the entity.

What is the procedure for registering a company in Zimbabwe?

Company registration in Zimbabwe could not be easier with Companies.co.zw. To start the company registration process, simply choose your preferred company structure between a Private Limited Company (PLC) and a Private Business Corporation (PBC), select a package that suit your budget from our Private Limited Company or Private Business Corporation Starter, Standard, Compliance and All Inclusive Packages (from US$60.00 for a PBC and from US$110.00 for a PLC); add any extras you might need by selecting a higher package and take 5 minutes to complete our online company registration form or at our offices.

Numbers, Nationality and address. For more information, please have a look at our Requirements for company registration checklist.

How long does it take to register a company in Zimbabwe.

Your new company will be registered, usually within 5 to 7 working days; however, this timescale is subject to the Companies Registry workload and it may take longer. If you need your company earlier than that, please inform us beforehand so we can see how we can help you.

How much does it cost to register a company in Zimbabwe?

Company registration in Zimbabwe costs US$65.00 to register a Private Business Corporation and US$109.99 to register a Private Limited Company. The company registration cost is depended on the type of company you want to register and the company registration package that you choose. For more information, please take a look at our Private Limited Company Packages and Private Business Corporation Packages. If you are a non-Zimbabwean resident, our Non-Resident Packages will be ideal for you and if market entry is subject to time pressures, take a look at our shelf companies.

What documents do I receive when I register a company?

You will recieve a Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum and Articles of Association, CR 5 (former CR 6) – list of company addresses and a CR6 (former CR14) – list of company directors if you register a Private Limited Company and a Certificate of Incorporation and  CR 28 – Statement of Incorporation if you register a Private Business Corporation.

Do you offer payment options?

Do I need a bank account?

It is not a legal requirement for a Zimbabwean registered company to have a company bank account; however, in practice you will find it extremely difficult to operate a business without its own bank account. ‘Companies’ offers Private Limited Company and Private Business Corporation registration packages that include bank opening assistance. We also offer a business banking solution for overseas customers who wish to set up a Zimbabwean company – see our Non-Residents Package for details.

Do I need a tax clearance to start trading?
