How to Check if a Company is Registered in Nigeria with CAC

Before falling for scams which might cause you huge financial losses, ensure you have done enough research on that particular company before striking any business deal with the company. One of the necessary step is to find out if the business is a registered business or company in Nigeria. To do this is simple since it went digital in 2016. There are two websites that can help you check if a company or NGO is registered in Nigeria. They include the CAC official website and the FIRS website. The later is applicable if you have the registration number and want to confirm. Let’s look at how both are done:

THROUGH CAC OFFICIAL WEBSITE

This is the steps to take:

  1. Visit the CAC official website and click on public search or simply go directly to the public search link

  4. A list appears with different variation of your search keywords
  5. If the company is registered The result will include the name of the company, the RC number, the address of the company and the date of registration. if it is not registered, it returns empty and if its undergoing registration the status will also show it but without a RC number
