Certificate of incorporation

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

The document issued by the Registrar of Companies to a new company once it has fulfilled the various conditions laid down in the Companies Act. It gives the recipient the legal status of’company’, which affords the right to contract in the company name as a legal persona. It is still necessary for other conditions to be met, however, before a public company can be given permission to commence business.
