Advantages of Option 1 (New Name):

1. Unique Identity (different to other Pty options)

Your Company will have a unique identity which creates a ‘Brand’ – as you choose a New Company Name of your choice.

2. Start Trading

A Pty Company, registered at CIPC, allows a business to formally trade with its own Company Name and Bank Account. It may then also apply for beneficial certificates such as:

  • Tax Verification & Clearance
  • Letter of Good standing
  • Many more…

Most Tenders and Contracts also require that you have a registered Company.

3. Tax Benefits

A Pty Company qualifies to get tax advantages such as:

  • Auto expenses (car related deductions)
  • Medical Aid
  • Donations / Charity
  • Home Office Space
  • All business related expenses

4. Minimise Risk

An individual is protected when trading under a Pty Company because the business is then a separate entity. Meaning that you (as the Owner / Director / Shareholder) take much less risk than when you are dealing under your own name.

5. Liquidity

Private Companies are more liquid (easy to buy and sell shares) than other Company formations. Via share allocation the Company can consist of 1 to 50 shareholders / directors.
