CIPC Company Search Report


The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC), previously known as Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (CIPRO), is ultimately responsible for the registration of all companies and intellectual property in South Africa.

pbVerify's business search function, which accesses the data provided by CIPC, enables our customers to easily retrieve and verify all registration information related to any registered South African business and its principles.

We have uniquely configured our search tool to allow for multiple search results, at no charge to our clients (in the event that only partial details are known and entered). Our unmatched search logic makes the pbVerify CIPC Business Search tool one of the most powerful business search reporting tools in South Africa.

This report forms part of the standard pbVerify online product suite and is available after registration to any business.
