How to close your Business Name in Nigeria

December 15, 2021

After incorporation of a business, the proprietor or proprietors of the business can decide to close the business name on reasonable grounds or upon the death of a proprietor, the Legal representative can apply for the business to be closed. The process of closing a business name in Nigeria is called cessation of business.

To apply for cessation of business, the applicant must provide a consent letter for the cessation of business addressed to the Registrar of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC). A death certificate would be required where the proprietor is dead and the identification card of the Legal representative. Where the proprietor(s) is applying for himself/herself, his/her identification card would suffice.

The application is usually done on the CAC  post-incorporation portal by an accredited agent of the Commission.

Before any cessation can be concluded the applicant must have filed up to date Annual Returns.
