Increase your income by registering new businesses


As an accounting practitioner, here’s a way to increase your income in 2019. South Africa has many aspiring entrepreneurs who want to register their businesses. As a bookkeeping and accounting practitioner you can increase your income by becoming a Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) customer who registers businesses on behalf of clients.

SA Accounting Academy is hosting a webinar by Russel Ngobeni who will take you through the steps of registering a company correctly through the CIPC. Russel will also discuss what you need to do in order for the registered company to remain compliant. Failure by a registered company to follow CIPC requirements may lead to the entity incurring penalties / fines or even face deregistration!

Some of the topics covered in this informative webinar include:

  • The legal business entity types available in South Africa.
  • Overview of the key differences between business types in South Africa.
  • How to register your chosen business type with the CIPC.
  • Documents required for registration.
  • Remaining compliant – filing iXBRL annual returns.
  • Further considerations:
    • Registration for income tax;
    • Registration for VAT;
    • Getting a Tax Clearance Certificate;
    • Getting a BEE certificate; and
    • Opening a bank account.
  • Poor financial management practices to avoid.

The webinar will be presented on 12 February 2019 from 9:00 to 11:00. Attendance will earn you 2 CPD hours.

The cost of the webinar is R399-00 for an individual or R699 for your whole firm. This event is free if you are a subscriber to the SAAA Bookkeeper CPD package.
