Do you have plans of starting a business in Cameroon or are you running an unregistered business?

Starting a business in Cameroon is a promising option as there are many sectors to invest in. However, the process to register a company in Cameroon is usually tedious and time-consuming requiring more documentation than any other business structure like enterprise, partnership, or NGOs.

Furthermore, once you’ve decided upon the right structure for your business, the registration process could last for many weeks. Someone who masters the knowledge and process of company registration must be available to follow up closely.

The OHADA law governs commercial companies in Cameroon (Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa) and profit-making organizations in Cameroon. Consequently, the OHADA uniform act provides rules and regulations for limited liability and unlimited liability companies. Therefore, it provides a transparent and plain playing field for commercial companies to operate following some set for well-defined rules.

In addition, As most companies have many employees, it is also essential to register with the National Social Insurance Fund (CNPS) and the Labour Office.

  • The company’s name (private or public) limited company
