    if i want to register an electrical installation company, what requirements do i need ?
    thank you for your reply.

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      You need all the requirements like any other company. The difference is contained in the Memorandum and Articles of Association, where you have to direct the objective of the company, the powers of the directors and other things. You need help? reach me in case you want register. 0757387337

    If I want to register a cleaning company but I want it to be a sole company wat r the procedures

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      Then that company is refered to as a Signle Member Company Limited. It is currently done in Uganda. Perhaps i can help you with drafting all the documents and completing the registration process. The biggest part is always drafting the Memorandum and Articles of Association. you can reach me on 0757387337

    Hello I am a foreigner but I want to register a Local company Limited by shares. Is it possible to register it fully in my names ?
    Thank you so much

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      it is possible and in your names, and the names of the next director (of course you must have two minimum). However, if you want it easily done, make sure there is a courier service available since URSB no-loner handles photocopied signatures. +256757387337

        Hey I need to register an Art company that deals with interior design and art at large do I need TIN and I didnt understand the associate, gold and silver stuff please thank you so much for the guidance.

  8. Natalie Forsey on Reply

    We have been told we need a ‘resolution’ document for registration. Do you know what this is or where I could find a draft example?

  9. Vianney on Reply

    could there be a possibility of an online registration. because i think its a bit hectic for us who stay very far away from Kampala.

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      You will never get that in Uganda. Perhaps its limited to Name Search of your company. But then even that URSB doesnt provide it on their portal.

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      Just register the business as any normal company. You can even register a business name if the capital youre starting with is not too huge

  10. Ed on Reply

    Hi, i am outside Uganda, do i have to be physically present to register a company or can i do it remotely. Do you assist with the process?

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      You can still do the process through someone else. Since the system doesn’t support scanned signatures, or work sent over online (actually they want original documents, which can only be delivered from and forth via a carrier like DHL in and out of Uganda) so you have to get someone to register the company and then transfer every thing to you via a carrier. +256757387337

      1. Sharon Tendo on Reply

        Am still grateful for the information I have received but am really in need of knowing like how much do I need to invest in all these formalities like registration of the company among others because I want to start a delivery service business

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      There is no definite price. All i can say is that all 3 companies (an NGO is registered under the Companies Act No. 2 2012) will not cost more than 1.5m. 075387337

  11. Esau on Reply

    Thank u very much for the information given, u have really opened my minds! My question is how much can it take to register my business(Money lender business) and kindly list for me the requirements.

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      Is registered as any business. But the difference is that the Lending business is controlled by the Money Lending and Small Financial Institutions regulations, meaning you will need a license to operate the businesses as a gazatted lender even after registering the business as a company. 0757387337

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      You can start a company with any sum of capital. All you need to do is have the documents done, and after the capital comes later, though in the documentation process, there is need to reflect the amount of “proposed capital” for initial investment. If i can be of help, contact me 0757387337

      Hi hope you’re all ok.
      Have some advice pliz…

      Pliz You’re asking the same question
      “how to register this, how to register this”

      Remember the Man has told you that the registration for any company is the same, and even he has given you his number…

      So please may you ask a different question?

    1. Mukubira John Mark on Reply

      Just like any company, register for a company and get a certificate, after register for an import and export trade license that falls into the category of goods you’re importing or wishing to export.

      A company can be opened even if your partners are foreigners, as long as you follow the right process. You can contact me for more details. 0757387337

      Don’t lose hope! You can make it.
      Find the necessary documents, .
      But first answer this:
      -How does the company benefit you?
      – Is it just the documents you want?
      -Can the business run without registration?
