How to get an Incorporation Certificate?

An incorporation certificate is an official document that is issued when a company is formed under SECP (Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan). The certificate of incorporation indicates that you have been granted a business license by the Government of Pakistan. A certificate of incorporation is also known as a certificate of registration because it enables you to register your business with the state’s applicable laws & regulations. 

Once you have decided to run your business, as a legal entity, choose the name of the business and incorporate your business as a Company under SECP. Those who wish to operate their business as a Company should proceed to SECP for provision of Certificate of Incorporation. 

Once registered with SECP, one can then apply for additional licenses and permits after getting the Incorporation Certificate. 

If you are looking to register your business in Pakistan, Taxocrate (Pvt) Ltd is your choice for Company/Firm/Proprietor/NGO registration and all other corporate requirements under one roof.
