About BizPortal

BizPortal is a platform developed by the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) to offer company registration and related services in a simple seamless digital way which is completely paperless. It was developed in response to the quest of improving the ease of doing business in South Africa, specifically starting a business.

As the CIPC strives to provide innovative and convenient ways of transacting with the CIPC, BizPortal is an additional channel to transact with CIPC. The CIPC BizPortal sees the CIPC collaborating with other government agencies (UIF and Compensation), industry regulators and private sector (Banking institutions).

BizPortal aims to offer a service where you would be able to register a company and on the same platform apply for B-BBEE, UIF, Compensation Fund, domain names, and even initiate the process of opening a business bank account; all this on a one platform.
