Changing the registered company address on your CIPC certificate is very important. The registered address of a company is the address at which any legal documents will be served on the company. Companies are required by law to ensure that this information is up to date, and may be liable for a fine or prosecution if it is found that the information is not up to date.
The Companies Act requires all companies to keep records of their minutes, resolutions and decisions, as well as the financial statements and share register, at a location that has been declared. A notice of the location of the company records must be filed with the CIPC only if the company records are not kept at its registered office or address.
When applying for contracts and tenders, the company address needs to be accurate on the company certificate and CIPC database. To open a bank account or apply for SARS/COID services, the company’s registered address needs to be correct on the registration certificate of the company and CIPC database.
