Namibian Close Corporation Registrations

We further assist clients in the incorporation of Namibian Close Corporations.  For a startup that is managed personally by a client a Namibian Close Corporation allows for certain benefits to a client.   We further have dormant shelf close corporations that have been registered as to allow clients to take immediate ownership of the entity.

The basic advantage of a Namibian Close Corporation is found in the simplicity of its structure.  For a business that is personally managed a close corporation is usually the appropriate vehicle. It is however important to note that only natural persons may be members of a Namibian Close Corporation.  Where the beneficial owner will not involved in the day to day operations of the enterprise a Namibian Company is normally a better entity to use.

Registration of External Companies in Namibia

In terms of the provisions of the Namibian Companies Act, any company which has not been incorporated in terms of Namibian Law , which has an establishment in Namibia is required to register as a external company in Namibia.  A external companies are rarely registered as most investors prefer to operate through a subsidiary that are incorporated in Namibia.  However, there may be certain advantages associated with registering a foreign entity as an external company in Namibia.
