Procedure of registration of a company in Kenya

Search of name

The applicant shall be required to search the desired name at the Registrar of Companies. The Registrar will issue the applicant with a letter confirming that the name is available for registration. This process takes about 3 days.

Memorandum & Articles

The applicant will be required to engage a professional lawyer/company secretary to draft the Memorandum of Articles which will set out the objects of the company and the internal constitution of the company.

Payment of Stamp duty

Once the memorandum & Articles are prepared, the lawyer will lodge the documents with the registrar of companies for payment of stamp duty. This process may take 1-3 days.

Registration of the company

Once the stamp duty is paid, the lawyer will forward the documents to the Registrar of Companies together with these forms.
  • Form 203A – this form covers the particulars of the company director and secretary.
  • Form 201 – this form notifies the registrar of the registered office of the company.
  • Form 208 – this compliance form is signed by the lawyer registering the company.
A certificate of registration will be issued.
