Name Reservation for Co-operatives
To reserve the name is optional but preferable. To reserve a name a form CR5 (Reservation of name) should be completed.
Discuss alternative names for the co-operative and agree on a name.
The fee for reservation of a name is R50-00.
Reservation of name
The name of the co-operative can be reserved by:
- Post. Post the CR5 to: Name Reservations, P O Box 429, Pretoria, 0001.
If you choose not to reserve the name, remember to send at least 5 alternative proposed names for your co-operative.
Important rules to keep in mind when choosing a co-operative name:
- The name must always indicate what the main business objective of the co-operative is. For example a co-operative that does Catering, the name must have a word like Catering as part of the name.
- If the co-operative does multiple objectives the main objective must still appear as part of the name but words like “Multi-Purpose” or “ Other Projects” could also form part of it.
The words "Primary /Secondary / Tertiary Co-operative Limited" must always appear at the end of the name.
