The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) says it will no longer receive visitors at its offices in Lagos and Abuja.
In a tweet on Thursday, the commission said documents will now be delivered through designated courier companies.
“This is to inform our esteemed customers that the commission in an effort to provide efficient services in the face of the present realities of the COVID-19 pandemic has resolved that customers will no longer be required to physically visit the commission’s premises in Abuja and Lagos to carry out official transactions,” the tweet read.
“Therefore, with effect from August 10, 2020, and August 31, 2020, customers in Abuja and Lagos respectively will be required to send and receive documents from the commission through designated courier companies.
“This is to control the physical presence of customers coming to submit or pick documents in the premises and also ensure their convenience in getting access to our services.
“The commission will also put in place a process for sending/receiving documents/transactions to/from customers through e-mails.
“With this, the physical submission of original documents before collection of pre-corporation certificates will be dispensed with.
“The documents uploaded online by the customer and approved for the registration would suffice.
“Customers should note that the new process has placed a responsibility on them to ensure that their documents are duly signed by the persons whose names appear therein in any transaction they present for filing.”
CAC said customers would begin to receive certificates by courier from Friday, July 24.
It also advised customers to hand over their original documents to the courier companies in exchange for their certificates.
