What are the Benefits of a PTY in South Africa?
The preferred choice of a legal entity for most Businesses in South Africa is a Pty. Here’s why:
1. You protect your personal life and assets from your business. If one runs a business, it is necessary to operate in a safe legal structure where your business assets and risks are separated from your personal ones.
2. You look more professional when you operate under a registered business name. If you want to obtain a big contract or tender, it is just so much more professional to trade in a Pty capacity than in your own name.
3. Most Suppliers and Government Departments require businesses to be registered as a Company to apply for their Tenders and Contracts.

What is the fastest way to register a small business in South Africa?
There are two ways in South Africa:
The first option is registering a Pty from scratch, and the second option is buying a Shelf Company. The option that’s best for you depends on how much time you have. Do you need a company registration number today or can you wait a bit?
1. If you need a PTY registration number today, buying a Shelf Company is your best and fastest option.
The fastest way to get a legal PTY is buying one of our Shelf Companies. It’s also the fastest way to get a PTY registration number that you can trade with right away. This usually takes about one day.

What’s the difference between a Shelf Company and a “normal” Pty in South Africa?
It’s vital to understand that both a “normal” Pty Company and a Shelf Company in South Africa are legally registered Pty Companies at the CIPC. There is no difference in where or how each of these types of companies are registered. There is simply a difference in when they are registered. When you buy a Shelf Company, it’s already registered at the CIPC. When you register a new PTY Company, you start from scratch with CIPC.
That’s essentially why buying a Shelf Company is faster. It’s a company that has already been legally registered at the CIPC – so you don’t have to.
How do Shelf Companies work?
To put it simply, Shelf Companies are PTYs that are registered and then “put onto a shelf” for other businesses or entrepreneurs to buy.
Shelf Companies are registered with generic names so they can be resold to businesses who need new PTYs, as fast as possible.
Once you’ve bought a Shelf Company the ownership details will be changed to your details. If you don’t like the generic name the Shelf Company you bought, already has, you can change it to pretty much any name you like. You can always change the name of a Shelf Company.
The other significant difference is the company’s number. The registration number is linked to the year it was registered in.
That implies, if you register a company at the CIPC in 2019, the year 2019 will reflect in the company number.
If you buy a Shelf Company, its number will be linked to when (the year) it was registered. We offer Shelf Companies from many different years. Older Shelf Companies are usually more expensive as they may add some perceived legitimacy to your business when you apply for Tenders, contracts and RFQ’s.
How can I register my Company as fast as possible?
It’s important to know exactly what documents you need to submit and in which format you need to submit them. It’s also imperative knowing exactly which forms you need to fill out and how. Doing something ineffectively or incorrectly can make it lag unnecessarily long. But do not worry, we are here to assist you and to take care of the process and documentation.
Our experts have supported thousands of South African entrepreneurs and small business owners with their company registration and also their tender and other compliance documentation. We assist businesses on a daily basis, so we work with the CIPC on a daily basis.

What types of companies are there in South Africa?
The most common type of company we register for South African entrepreneurs is a private company. It’s also known as a Pty Ltd Company. Other Company types include Public Companies, Personal Liability Companies and External (Foreign) Companies.
Please note, according to South African legislation you can no longer register Closed Corporations.
What is a Pty or a Proprietary Limited Company?
As we mentioned above, a Pty or a Proprietary Limited Company is one of the most popular types of businesses in South Africa.
It’s so popular, because it works for most small to medium businesses in South Africa. This type of business has a “(Pty) Ltd” added to its official paper work. Having a Pty Company helps you limit your personal liability. Why? In the eyes of South African law, it’s considered a separate legal entity. That means, unless you act recklessly or unlawfully, you will not be held personally accountable when things go wrong with your business.
With a Pty you can safeguard yourself; the Pty structure help you ensure your business risks stay contained within your registered company.
You also get a company number, which allows you to apply to Tenders, RFQs, contract or finance in South Africa.
You can be a single owner or you can have up to 50 owners. In a Pty, owners are called shareholders. Although the shareholders are often the directors of a Pty, it’s not automatic. If you have more than 1 owner, you should ensure that you’re registered as both a director and a shareholder.
If you want your business to be a separate legal entity, so you can limit liability, a Pty Company is one of the easiest structures to register in terms of short and long-term paperwork.
It’s also helpful to keep in mind, that our online services will help you rule out most of the admin related to a new Pty Company.
