Corporation means to make your business a group regarded as individual by law.

A business will be more trusted by its customers, it can register for insurance, have a corporate bank account, apply for government grants or loans etc. Last year I got a government grant that I would not have got if I had not registered my business. Even individuals who will be interested in sponsoring or donating to what you are doing would get discouraged when they realized that you are not recognized by the required body of your kind of business. Corporate Affairs Commission CAC is saddled with the responsibility of registering businesses and most of businesses need only CAC’s certificate for their businesses except for those that are into financing, food, health that need other certificates. When you are ready to register with CAC, go to their office for further instructions. Also, make inquiries regarding your kind of business to know if you need to get registered elsewhere.
