Do you wish to register a business name or a company in Nigeria but you don’t know the cost? This post is just what you need. I will give you a breakdown of the cost of registering a business name or a company in Nigeria.

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) is in charge of regulating the formation and management of companies in Nigeria. Therefore, every company (private or public) in the country have to be duly registered with the CAC.

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) is the government agency in charge of registering companies and businesses in Nigeria. They also regulate the activities of the companies and businesses by their constitution.

The cost of registering a company in Nigeria depends on the type of company. The cost of registering a private company is different from the cost of registering a public company. Also, the cost of registration for companies with share capital varies depending on the worth of the share capital of the business.
