Dear Customer

Due to operational reasons, the uploading of documents will be discontinued from 17 June 2015.  Click here to view the notice, as well as relevant e-mail addresses for submitting applications/documents to CIPC

Important Note:  Ensure that you use the correct email addresses for submitting applications.  Documents will not be processed if submitted to incorrect email addresses.

Only the following requests/applications will still be done via the website:

  • Requests for paper-based disclosure for the public as well as government departments
  • Requests for perusal of files
  • Standard data sales requests
  • Ad hoc data sales requests
  • Upload financial accountability supplements


Please ensure that all the specific requirements for submission of documents are met.

All applications for E-Services (electronic CoR39 and new company registrations) have to be submitted via the relevant e-mails and the following specific requirements must be adhered to:-

  • The tracking number (e.g. 917291526) must be clearly stated in the subject heading of your email. (if applicable) Note: not all transactions lodged have a tracking number.

  • Documents must reflect as an attachment and not form part of the body of the e-mail.
  • Documents must be legible and only submitted once.

Failure of which will result in the application being rejected.  Note: this is only applicable to the online applications (new companies and names).
  • If documents are rejected, a new application must be submitted.  Customers are required to recapture information and get a new tracking number.  Attach all the supporting documents required and email them to the relevant address.

For other applications:-

  • The application must be submitted as a single e-mail.
  • The scanned document must be in TIFF or PDF format.
  • Documents must only be lodged once funds are reflecting in the customer code.
  • Documents must reflect as an attachment and not form part of the body of the e-mail.
