Norway Company Search Report - Timescale

The search report is delivered by email in 4 - 14 business days.

Receiving search reports in Nigeria can sometimes be a slow process. Please be informed that a form and consent letter have to sometimes be completed to provide a report in Nigeria.

Accounting and Reporting

Companies are legally obliged to produce and maintain director and shareholder registers that are available for public inspection upon request.

Accounting and reporting requirements apply that oblige all Nigerian companies to file annual returns, annual tax returns and other financial documents. Annual financial documents must be submitted to the Corporate Affairs Commission within 42 days of the Annual General Meeting. Non compliance will result in penalty charges and the risk of the company being struck off the companies register.

Nigeria Certificate of Incorporation

The Nigeria Certificate of Incorporation is issued by the Corporate Affairs Commission and we can provide a registry copy of the company incorporation certificate which includes the company name, company number, date of incorporation and states that a company is incorporated under the relevant companies acts.
