Private Limited Companies (PLC)

The majority of companies that are registered in Zimbabwe are limited companies popularly known as Private Limited Companies (PLC’s). This is the usual company structure for a company which has been registered for the purpose of generating a profit for the shareholders who are owners of the business. It is remarkably popular because it allows the shareholders to share profits amongst themselves at the same time offering restricted financial liability. The shareholders are only responsible for company debts up to the value of the shares they hold in the company. So their personal assets will be protected should the company fall into any financial trouble.

Private Business Corporation

The Private Business Corporation (PBC) is a less common but viable option to the Private Limited Company. It is mostly used by small businesses who want to regularise their business operations or those aiming to operate as individuals/sole traders for example consultants, contractors or partners such as lawyers, accountants, engineers, architects, or any other industry. It protects the personal finances of the company owners in a similar way as a Private Limited Company. Instead of having shareholders and directors, it has members. The member’s financial liability is restricted to the amount of money they invest when registering the company.

Founder, Benward Transport (Private) Limited

The consultants were very patient with me. I was registering a company for the first time and I was doing this from the UK. Their consultants explained the whole process to me so it gave me comfort that my company was going to be registered legally. I had a deadline and i explained everything before hand. My company was registered in our agreed time without any delays. An efficient service!!!

What company structure is best for me?

Most companies registered in Zimbabwe are registered as Private Companies popularly known as Private Limited Companies or (PLC’s). Most entrepreneurs choose a PLC because it allows you to trade, make a profit at the same time giving you limited liability in-case the company falls into any financial problems.

Alternatively, if you wish to start small operations like home industries or if you are aiming to operate as partners such as lawyers, accountants, contractors, architects etc. but you still need limited liability, perhaps a Private Business Corporation (PBC) is the best company structure. Company Formations also provide several registrations depending on your needs e.g. Companies Limited by Guarantee, Cooperative Companies, Partnerships/Syndicate/Consortium/Joint Venture or Unregistered Associations, TrustsNon-Governmental Organisations and churches.

What are the documents needed for company registration?

We don’t necessarily need any physical document copies to register a company. We generally need the information found on your personal documents e.g. your name, id number, addresses, etc. If you however would like to provide the documents, we will accept them.

What documents do I receive after registering my company in Zimbabwe?

The documents you will receive after company registration depend with the company registration package that you choose but for the basic package, you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum and Articles of Association, CR 5 (Former CR 6) i.e. list of addresses and CR 6 (Former CR 14) i.e. list if directors and  secretaries when you register a Private Limited Company. For a Private Business Corporation you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation and a CR 28 i.e. Statement of Incorporation. Depending on the package that you choose you will also receive a bank advice note, tax clearance, share certificates, first meeting minutes, company registers and our FREE e-book.

Just fill in your company registration online form and we will contact you as soon as we receive the application. However, you can also visit our offices to start your company registration process.

Do I need a tax clearance to start trading?

Yes you would need a tax clearance. The Zimbabwean law requires every Zimbabwean registered company to register with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) within 30 days of starting to trade. Some businesses will not do business with you if you do not have a tax clearance or they will charge 30% withholding tax on the transaction. You also can’t open a corporate or business bank account in Zimbabwe without a tax clearance (bank advice note).
