Sole proprietorships are registered under the Registration of Business Names Act. A sole proprietorship is formed by only one person. It is easy to set-up and links the owner of a business to their company. Companies structured as sole proprietorships can include individual freelancers, creatives, growing startups, and established businesses with physical storefronts or workspaces.  The ability to operate as a sole proprietor, without formal registration or high costs, is especially beneficial if you’re building your startup as a side gig, outside your regular day job. The ease of establishment means you don’t have to be 100 percent committed or invested financially to begin operations.

Requirements for registration of a sole proprietorship:

  • Proposed business names for search and approval;
  • Nature of business; for professional services a practicing certificate by the relevant body for the current year will be attached;
  • Proposed Physical address of the business. Address includes road, plot number, town, and county;
  • Full names of the sole proprietor;
  • Nationality of the sole proprietor;
  • Age of sole proprietor based on national ID;
  • Gender of the sole proprietor;
  • Usual place of residence of the sole proprietor
  • Copy of ID / Passport for the Sole proprietor;
  • 2 passport photos of the Sole proprietor;
