A Share Certificate (share cert for short) is a physical, written document signed by the Directors of a Company, and serves as legal proof of each Director’s shareholding/ownership in the Company. These Certificates need to be prepared according to the Companies Act of 2008 through a Company Secretary. If the process is not followed accurately, the Certificates will be declared invalid in a South African Court.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Share Certificate is a formal document signed by a company’s directors. It’s like a receipt, showing how much of the company you own. Think of it as your proof of ownership in the company. It’s essential to have it prepared correctly; otherwise, it might not be recognised legally in South Africa.


Absolutely! Most banks in South Africa will ask for a valid Share Certificate when you’re setting up a bank account for your new company. It’s their way of verifying your ownership in the company.


Great question! While a Share Certificate is your proof of ownership, a Share Register is like a detailed logbook. It keeps track of when and how shares in the company change hands between shareholders. It’s a way to keep everything transparent and organised.


Definitely! If you ever find yourself in a legal tangle about your ownership in a company, your Share Certificate is your golden ticket. It’s the legal proof you’d present in court to show your stake in the company.


No, the CIPC doesn’t handle this. While they don’t keep records of shareholders or the shares they’ve issued, it’s up to the company itself to draw up Share Certificates. Remember, even though it’s not mandatory by the Companies Act of 2008, having one is crucial for many practical reasons.


Congratulations on your new venture! Typically, companies make about 1000 shares available initially. This is done during the company registration process, and it’s shown on your company’s MOI Certificate. It’s a way to set the foundation for current and future shareholders.
