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 your company.

What is company registration in Zimbabwe?

Company registration is the incorporation of a company with the Deeds, Companies and Intellectual Property (DCIP). Once a company is incorporated it becomes a separate legal entity, separate from its owners which means the company owners are not liable for the company’s debts or financial problems.

Why should I register a company?

A limited company means having “limited liability”. The most important reason for registering a company is that it can help 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 (provided it does not breach an existing trademark registration), the credibility of having limited company status, and you may also be eligible for tax relief, subject to certain conditions (for more information, contact a qualified accountant).

What are the types of companies that I can 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.

Limited Companies

The most popular type of company registered in Zimbabwe is a company Limited by Shares popularly known as a Private Limited Company. 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 Limited Company only exists once it has been registered. It is prohibited to issue its shares to the public.

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

A private limited company can start trading immediately upon registration.

After you register a Private Limited Company you will receive a certificate of incorporation, CR5, CR6 and Memorandum and Articles of Association.

 

Private Business Corporation

The Private Business Corporation (PBC) business 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.

After you register a Private Business Corporation you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation and CR28 (Statement of Incorporation.
