How we can assist

PSIRA is a complex and costly process which requires a host of registrations and supporting documents.

We are able to assist with the following services:  new company registration, tax clearance, insignia, resolutions and the business plan, but there are some you will also need to gather yourself, eg. grade B security certificates and CVs for all directors, lease agreement and proof of contact number.

Once we have complete all of the documents, the company director needs to register on the PSIRA website, make payment of the R7100 non-refundable registration fee and proceed to upload the documents onto their website.
