How local entrepreneur is making it easy to register a company
COPY RIGHT | Launching a new business can be challenging, not with all the paperwork and requirements. Startup businesses are always weighed down with uncertainty of the whole process and never quite get off the ground.
This reality is the inspiration behind The Companies Bureau (TCB).
The first of its kind in Uganda, TCB is a company formations agency helping hundreds of Ugandan start-up businesses meet the requirements for the registration and launch of their businesses.
“Our service allows the business owner focus on his core competences as we sort out the registration bottlenecks,” says Harry Sagara, TCB publicist.
He adds that Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), the regulator for business registrations, is often overwhelmed with numbers, thus creating a need for this kind of service.
“Not everybody wants to go up those elevators to meet the normal red-tape in public offices and that’s where we come in,” he said. “We are a one stop shop that gets your startup registered with the regulator, get your branding done and also do your taxation.”
Sagara said the Companies Bureau Limited is the premier leading company formation agency based in Kampala, Uganda.
“We help thousands of clients each month start new companies. We work with many leading accountancy and law firms, providing incorporation services,” he said.
“Our team has a vast amount of experience with more than 10 years combined industry experience in company formation and secretarial services.”
The Companies Bureau offers different packages based on a business owner’s needs. Clients can easily set up a limited company online using TCB’s web-portal service.
The company says it provides additional services like professional mail forwarding, meeting rooms, and secretarial services – all designed to help a new company get off the ground.
“Their team goes through all of the required paperwork, making sure all of the information about the business is filled out correctly and in a professional way,” he said.
The professionalism of the documents is critical to ensure acceptance and prevent rejection. Companies working with The Companies Bureau are submitted instantly to URSB and normally formed, approved and ready to trade with full company documents within 24 hours.
With an eye on excellence in customer services, the ordering process and website are simple to use and secure. The Companies Bureau has also partnered with a couple of banks to ensure quality and exceptional service for clients who intend to open bank accounts.
