Non compliance will result in penalty charges and the risk of the company being struck off the companies register.
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.
