How can i recover my lost certificate of incorporation from the Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC)?

July 23, 2019

To recover a lost Certificate of Incorporation, a director of the Company has to write an application to the commission, stating that the original certificate that was issued is lost and requesting for a Certified True Copy of the lost certificate.

WHAT IS A CERTIFIED TRUE COPY (CTC)?

A certified true copy is a copy of an original document and it would have on it an endorsement that it is a true copy of the primary document. This CTC carries as much weight as the original document that was lost.

REQUIREMENTS FOR APPLICATION FOR CTC OF CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION

  • Duly signed application letter.
  • Sworn affidavit by the director explaining circumstance of loss.
  • Updated Annual returns.
  • Updated filings as required by S. 553 of CAMA (applicable to every banking or insurance company or a deposit, provident, or benefit society)
  • Payment of prescribed fees.
