Company registration in Zimbabwe Faq’s

Want to find out more about company registration in Zimbabwe with Companies Made Simple? Have a look through our Frequently asked questions to find out more about how to register a company.

What is company registration in Zimbabwe?

Company registration is the process you need to go through to officially set up a business in Zimbabwe. This can be a Private Limited Company, Private Business Corporation, Limited by Guarantee, Foreign Company/Branch or any other company structure, but is all done through the Deeds, Companies and Intellectual Property (DCIP) through an agent such as Companies Made Simple.

The process is slightly different based on the company structure you choosee, but we have a comprehensive service for each business type, so you can be confident your registration goes smoothly.

Why should I register a company?

The most important reason for registering a company is that it provides limited liability. It helps protect you from risks to your home and other assets because your liability is limited.

There are also other benefits to becoming a company, including protection for your trading name (no other company can use it if you are registered), the credibility of having limited company status, and you may also be eligible for tax relief.

What type of company should I register?

Most people require a standard Private Limited Company (PLC) which is suitable for nearly all types of trading. However, if you operate a small business or if you are a professional such as consultants, accountants, architects etc a Private Business Corporation would be best alternative.

Private Limited Company (PLC)

The most popular type of company registered in Zimbabwe is a company Limited by Shares popularly known as a Private Limited Company (PLC). The most attractive reason for registering a Private Limited Company is a protection of limited liability. It means that only the shareholders are responsible for the debts of the company up to the value of their shares in the company. There are no minimum or maximum share capital requirements. 

A Private Limited Company must have at least two directors. There are no specific qualification requirements, no nationality or residence restrictions for a company director or shareholder.

Private Business Corporation

The Private Business Corporation (PBC) company structure is mostly suitable for small businesses and proffessionals in the industry of accountants, architects, dentists and solicitors who most often operate as individuals or as partnerships.

Though it can accomodate 1 individual, a Private Business Corporation is a formal partnership between at least two business partners. Each business partner is provided with limited liability, which means they aren’t fully responsible for the business’ debts or liabilities. And partners in a Private Business Corpoation aren’t liable for the negligent acts or malpractice of a single partner – each partner is accountable for their own negligence.

Each partner in a Private Business Corporation has a say in the operation and management of the business. The PBC agreement (by-laws) also allows partners to leave the partnership and new partners to be added.

How much does it cost to register a company?

The cost of registering a company in Zimbabwe is US$65.00 for a Private Business Corporation (PBC) and and a Private Limited Company (PLC) costs US$130.00 and it can be paid by cash, bank transfer, EcoCash, zipit or remittence services for international clients. Find out more about our Private Business Corporation Prices and our Private Limited Company Packages. For non Zimbabwean residents we have Non-Resident Packages. *ZWL prices are available on request.

There are 5 basic requirements for registering a company in Zimbabwe which include:

  • Company addresses ; physical, postal and email (the physical address should be a Zimbabwean address)
  • 2 or more company directors

What documents will I get as proof of my new company registration?

For a Private Limited Company you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum and Articles of Association, CR 5 and CR 6. With a Private Business Corporation you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation and CR 28. Other extras will depend on the company registration package package that you would have chosen.
