Which type of company should should I register in Zimbabwe?

A Private Limited Company is the most popular type of company in Zimbabwe alternatively, a Private Business Corporation.

Most people register a Private Limited Company (PLC) which is the most widely accepted company structure in Zimbabwe and is suitable for nearly all types of trading. A private limited company is a type of business structure that is legally separate from its owners, who are known as shareholders. The shareholders are only liable for the company’s debts to the extent of their investment in the company. This means that the personal assets of the shareholders are not at risk if the company incurs debts or is sued. PLC’s are registered for the purpose of making a profit.

Alternatively, you can register a Private Business Corporation (PBC) which is mostly suitable for small businesses and professionals in the industry of accountants, architects, dentists and solicitors who most often operate as individuals or as partnerships. A PBC also offers limited liability.

It is highly recommended that you open a company bank account after registering a company in Zimbabwe. A separate company bank account helps to keep your personal and business finances separate, which is important for legal and tax reasons.

Having a separate business bank account also makes it easier to track your business income and expenses, and to manage your cash flow effectively. You also can not be issued a tax clearance without a bank account and having one also improves your business’s credibility with suppliers, investors, and customers.
