Company Incorporation

LawCastles provides services to new and existing businesses by acting as a company formation/incorporation agent. Our law firm provides company formation services as part of the general services of assisting foreign individuals and other business entities to set up their legal presence in Tanzania. Our specialist knowledge and vast experience enable us to provide fast and efficient company formation services. We can incorporate a company limited by shares; company limited by guarantee and register a foreign company in Tanzania through obtaining a certificate of compliance. Once you have provided us with basic information, we are able to process company incorporation immediately.

To relieve international companies of an administrative burden and to give them confidence that legislative obligations are met, we offer company secretarial services that deals with company formations and all statutory compliance requirements. Our law firm has qualified lawyers and certified public accountants. Every Tanzanian limited liability company must have a company secretary who will perform a variety of tasks that are crucial to the smooth running of the company, which includes ensuring that the company's statutory obligations are complied with. LawCastles will act as your Tanzanian company nominee secretary or as a joint company secretary to ensure that you are compliant with the Companies legislation. We can act as company secretary through a nominee company owned by our firm or by appointing one of our attorneys and we can provide a registered office service. We undertake the maintenance of the company's statutory registers and the filing of returns and other documents with the Registrar of Companies as appropriate.

We can help to ensure that incorporations are effected with the correct corporate structure, both as to type of company (public or private, share capital or guarantee, joint venture company, etc) and with appropriate provisions in the company's Memorandum and Articles of Association. Ongoing support and advice is then available on Board and shareholders' meetings, appointment and retirement of directors, share issues and transfers, and all other technical and procedural matters. 

As a rule, the company secretary does not have any involvement in the day-to-day operations of the business and does not become signatory to any bank accounts. Our company secretarial services to your company include preparing and filing annual return; filing annual accounts; maintaining the registers that a Tanzanian company is required to keep by law; filing information on changes in directors'/secretaries' details; filing information on change in the registered office; filing information regarding changes in shareholdings and share structure; issuing share certificates; issuing dividend vouchers; making arrangements for a company meetings; and maintaining the minute book, etc.
