How to Register a Company in Zimbabwe

Though this is a general outline, it's recommended that you seek professional advice from a lawyer or accountant when registering a company in Zimbabwe to ensure that you comply with all the necessary regulations and requirements.

The process of registering a company in Zimbabwe involves several steps that need to be completed. Here's a brief overview of the process:


  1. Reserve a company name: Before registering a company, you need to choose a unique name that is not already in use. You can reserve the name with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) by completing the necessary forms.

  2. Prepare the required documents: The next step is to prepare the documents required for registration. This includes the Memorandum and Articles of Association, Notice of Registered Office, and Notice of Directors and Secretary.

  3. Pay the registration fee: You will need to pay a registration fee to the CIPC when submitting your application.

  4. Submit the documents: Once you have completed the necessary forms and paid the registration fee, you can submit your application to the CIPC.

  5. Wait for approval: The CIPC will review your application and will either approve or reject it. If approved, you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation.

  6. Register for tax: After receiving your Certificate of Incorporation, you will need to register for tax with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA).
