1.The Name Approval / Name Reservation includes the applicant’s name, address, contact information, the proposed name of the business and the nature of the business.
The applicant signs the bottom of the form, however an incorporator, accountant or attorney at law can sign for and on behalf of the applicant only with respect to the Application for Name Approval.
The relevant fees are paid to the cashier and the receipt is stamped with the date of return for the applicant. This is usually five to seven working days. If the Registrar has an issue with the proposed name, a query will be placed on the application. When the applicant returns to collect the name search results, the query must be satisfied in writing. In the event that there are no queries, the applicant will collect the name approval and proceed the next step.
2.Preparing and filing the Application for Registration by an Individual.
At this juncture, the application for Registration by an Individual must be completed and submitted together with the name approval that was previously collected. Details such as the business name, principal place of business, nature of the business, full name of the applicant must be included in this form. Only the applicant can sign this form and a copy of photo identification must also be submitted with the application to verify the signature of the applicant. The relevant fees are paid and the cashier issues a receipt with the stamped date for the applicant to return, usually five to seven working days. Once this application is approved, the certificate will be produced and ready for collection by the applicant.
