Avoidance of Personal Liabilities and Risks

ncorporating your business eliminates most of your personal liability and risks. The extent of your liability is tied to the number of shares you hold in the company. Your personal assets cannot be seized to repay the debts owed by your business and you cannot be held responsible for the debts unless you had personally guaranteed the debt/loan. Your incorporated business is a separate legal entity.

Legal Protection

Once your business is registered or incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission, your business name is protected and nobody can use the same name or even a name that is similar to it throughout Nigeria. This has the benefit of legally protecting your corporate image and business name from passoff or unauthorized use.

Corporate Bank Account

Operating a business bank account is an important asset to your business because it enables you separate personal activities from business activities. You need to provide proof that your business is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission to open a corporate bank account in Nigeria. It is more professional to give your clients a corporate bank name for payment instead of your personal name.

Public Perception & Brand Credibility

Registering your company enhances your brand image credibility and perception of your business. This has the effect of improving your business future dealings with third parties, as many businesses will only hire or engage with registered companies rather than individuals. Incorporating a business can therefore open up new vistas and opportunities that would otherwise not be available.
