Advantages of Option 1 (Register a Company with a 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
- Tax Clearance
- COID Letter of Good standing
- VAT Registration
- BEE Certificate
- COID Registration
- Many more…
Most Tenders and Contracts also require that you have a registered Company.
3. Tax Benefits
A Pty Company qualifies to get business tax deductions such as:
- 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 legal entity. Meaning that you (as the Owner / Director / Shareholder) take much less risk than when you are trading / dealing under your own name.
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.
