The Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has introduced a public search window that will enable members of the public search for existing Companies names, Business names, Incorporated Trustees and those undergoing registration.
It also enables individuals desirous of submitting applications for Name Search and Reservation to know whether the proposed name has already been registered by someone else. The window gives information on the Company name, business name, Registration Number, Name and Date of Incorporation and is available free of charge.
For job seekers who wish to verify the authenticity of a company, this will be helpful. Though some genuine companies sometimes could project a brand name different from the registered business name. However, this tool will go a long way in guiding you.
