About Private Companies

In South Africa, the Companies Act 2008 regulates companies, including (but not limited to): how to form a company and the rights and duties of shareholders and directors. 

A company is defined as entity or business organisation which earns income by the production or sale of goods or services.

A company is formed by registering your company with CIPC (Companies and Intellectual Property Office) of South Africa.

In order to register your company, you must reserve a company name, appoint shareholders and directors.

The process usually takes 24 to 48 hours.

A company is automatically registered with a standard Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI).

The standard MOI issued with a new company, is a document issued by CIPC which details items such as the name of the company, the directors, meetings and voting.

You can change the MOI by special resolution and submitting your new MOI to CIPC.

In addition to the MOI, shareholders may also have a shareholders agreement. This is an agreement which is a private document and should regulate the private affairs’ of the company (such as funding and disputes)

A company must have at least 1 director. Usually the shareholders will also be the directors, however this is not a requirement. A shareholder can appoint a person who is not a shareholder to be a director.

A director is different to a shareholder, in that a director need not be a shareholder (therefore need not own shares), a director owes fiduciary duties to the company and therefore may be held personally liable for not acting in the interests of the company

 

A company must have at least 1 shareholder. A shareholder is the person who owns the shares.

A shareholder acts in their own interests and does not owe any fiduciary duties to the company. In general, a shareholder shall not be personally liable to the company or for the companies debts (save for surety or other personal security)
