Our Core Company Services

Company Formation

Our core area of expertise is formation of companies in Kenya. We know a lot about business registration and we continue to gather more knowledge with each passing day as we help our customers who can be non-residents or residents.

BUSINESS PERMITS

For those companies that plan on having physical offices in Kenya, one of the permits that they are required obtain is the business permit normally issued by a local county government. Upon request by our clients, we can get the permit on their behalf.

REGISTERED OFFICE

Majority of our non-resident customers normally operate remotely meaning they lack physical offices in Kenya. Since all companies are required by the law to have an office address in Kenya, we provide them with an address they can use.

Company RETURNS

One of the statutory requirements for companies in Kenya is filing of Annual Company Returns. To protect companies that we’ve been part of since their registration from attracting unnecessary penalties, we file the returns on their behalf.

WORK PERMIT

Introduced due to demand by our non-resident customers who were satisfied with our company registration service and didn’t want to involve another agency. Work permits are a challenge to get in Kenya but we have a success rate of 85%.

ACCOUNTING & TAX

Accounting and Taxation services are offered by our sister company, Bizna Consult. The need for the service arose after we noticed that majority of our non-resident customers required assistance with Kenya taxation and accounting procedures.

VARIETY

Choose a company structure that suits your needs

Private Limited Company

This is by far the most popular type of company among those forming up new companies in Kenya. Most people refer to is as Limited company while others know it as Limited Liability Company (LLC). Once registered, it becomes a distinct legal entity to its shareholders and directors meaning that the company is an individual in its own right. Shareholders are not wholly responsible for debts incurred by the company.

Limited Liability Partnership

A Limited liability partnership (LLP) combines the flexibility of a general partnership with the limited liability of a limited company. It can be set up by two or more members – either a person or a company – who jointly own and control the business. The personal assets of the partners are protected and their liability is limited to the amount they have invested in the business and any personal guarantees given when raising loans.

Company Limited by Guarantee

A Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) is similar to a standard limited company with the major difference being that it has guarantors instead of shareholders. It is primarily used for non-profit activities since it is not permitted to disburse any dividends.
