Close Corporations (CC’s) are not being registered at CIPC (CIPRO) in South Africa anymore. Up to 2010 you could register a CC or a Private Company (Pty) Ltd. Under the Companies Act of 2008 these two Company formats were ‘merged’ and only PTY Company Formats have been registered since. Please note that we still have a Shelf CC for sale that were registered in 2010.

More FAQ's & Info on Close Corporations in South Africa

What is the meaning of a Close Corporation?

Much like a PTY, Close Corporations (or otherwise known as a CC) are the old format of a private company registration. A company registered before 2011 was classified as a CC. CCs are subject to the same legal requirements as a PTY and are an entity on their own with legal tax obligations alike. The only difference, CCs do not hold shares and, therefore, do not have shareholders. But rather hold Member interests and hold members to the company.

For more info on Close Corporations, you can view some of the main questions most business owners ask below. Simply click on the question most relevant to you, to view the answer.

Both Private Companies (PTY) and Close Corporations (CC) are legal entities and have limited liability of members or shareholders.

Private Companies (or more commonly known as a PTY) have a greater number of directors and/or shareholders that may be appointed on the company – 50 shareholders being the maximum. You are also able to appoint other companies or trusts as a shareholder on a PTY entity. Directors of a PTY company run the day-to-day operations of the company, whilst the shareholders own the company. A private company needs the services of an auditor or chartered accountant although there are some exclusions. Also, Private Companies need to hold an AGM and the cost to register is higher.

With a members limit of a maximum of 10 natural people, meaning actual persons, a CC is often the chosen format of an entity for small businesses. The general rules or obligations for a CC may sometime be more relaxed, CCs do not need to convene an AGM. However, an accounting officer or bookkeeper will need to be assigned.

It is no longer possible to register a CC in South Africa, in accordance with the new Companies Act (Act 71 of 2008). However, you are still able to upkeep and buy/sell pre–registered CCs.

See the below list of a few benefits of having a CC:

1. Within a close corporation structure, there are fewer formalities which must be followed.
2. The members in a close corporation have greater control of share sales.
3. Strong liability protections offered for members.
4. Freedom in financial structuring.
5. There is more freedom of management.
