CIRP search

People looking for a CIPC (CIPRO) business search tool are usually looking for one of three things: information about a company, information about a director (or directors) of a company, or SARS VAT information.

In order to verify business registration information, the accuracy of VAT numbers as well as statutory and non-statutory Directors’ information, you need a reliable CIPC (previously known as CIPRObusiness search tool.

What is CIPC?

The newly formed Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) was established through the amalgamation of the Office of Companies and Intellectual Property Enforcement (OCIPE) and the Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (CIPRO). The main functions of CIPC include registration Co-operatives and Intellectual Property Rights (trademarks, patents, designs and copyright); Licensing of business rescue practitioners; Monitoring compliance with and contraventions of financial reporting standards, and so forth.

As you can tell, CIPC holds all the information to companies, their directors and official VAT information. The challenge, however, is finding the right information within a short amount of time. This is where pbVerify comes in.
