“Nigeria’s Minister of Trade and Investment, Olusegun Aganga has said the cost of business registration in the country has been slashed by 50 percent to encourage investment in the country.
Speaking at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a 19-man Brazilian delegation led by Brazil’s Deputy Minister of development, Industry and Foreign Trade, Richardo Schaefer on the promotion of trade and investment between Nigeria and the Southern American country; Aganga said the Corporate Affairs Commission had since October 1, 2013 slashed the capital registration cost by 50 percent for equity registrations of N500 million or lower, and by 25 percent for equity registrations above N500m.
“Following the directive from the president …capital registration fees for companies (Under Part A) have been reduced across board. While capital registration below N1m ($6,260) will retain a flat fee of N10,000 ($63); all registrations between N1m(S6,260) and N500,000 ($3,130) are reduced by 25 percent,” Aganga said.
