Free new company registrations
In January, we decided that we would no longer charge our services to register new companies. All that would be required was payment of the R175 CIPC fee.
I was fascinated to find that practically nobody took up our offer! When it came to the on-line credit card payment for the R175, perhaps they thought it was a scam and terminated the transaction.
We phoned them all and their reasons were vague.
I was tempted to do the job for absolutely nothing, but decided to approach it differently first.
I figured that if we make it look like a 50th anniversary present, they may believe us.
Yes, we certainly got a good response, but all of the transactions were cancelled before being completed.
Now when we phoned them they said that it was too complicated and we must send them our banking details.
Too complicated? Wake up guys! We’re well into the 21st century.
