US-Based Firm Commends Senate For Biggest Business Reform Bill
HOPe Care Services is very pleased with the recent repeal and re-enactment of the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA), a significant milestone in Nigerian legislative program. With this development, it is by far the most far-reaching legislation ever passed by any legislature in Nigeria.
Hereunder are some of the reform benefits:
- It will make Nigeria’s business environment as competitive as its counterparts around the world.
- With Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA), one person can now open and run a company – unlike in the past when two or more persons were required. This is good for start-ups and young entrepreneurs.
- It promotes the use of technology in the registration of businesses.
- CAMA removes all unnecessary regulatory provisions for small companies.
- It reduces the minimum share capital for companies and start-ups in Nigeria.
- It creates another new category of legal identity for Nigerian businesses.
- It ensures that Nigerians can now register their businesses from anywhere in the country through the e-registration system which derives its legal backing from the Senate’s amendment.
- Henceforth, no one needs the consent of the Attorney General of the Federation to register a company limited by guarantee (NGO).
It is significant for Nigerian embassies worldwide to conspicuously populate this information on its website, to attract diaspora Nigerians, their foreign counterparts, and investors.
And endeavor to reach out to minority and small businesses, including all trade and economic development corporation across the United States.
HOPe Care Services will not hesitate to personally take this information to Narbeli Galindo, Director of International Affairs – Kansas City Department of Economic Corporation as it recently did when the President of Nigeria visited White House to sign a trade agreement.
It is our believed that the department is looking forward to working with us more to expand Kansas City Businesses in Nigeria.
