New Body to Handle Business Registration in Kenya

The office of the Attorney General has formed a new body that will be tasked with the registration of businesses in Kenya.

Attorney-General Githu Muigai published a list of directors to run the Business Registration Service Board on Monday stripping the State Law Office of the powers to register companies.

Ms Carol Musyoka has been appointed to head the board and will work with Michael Mugasa, Shallah Sheikh, Irene Wamakau and Ben Gaithuma as directors for three years.

The Attorney-General was mandated by the Business Registration Service Act, which removes the function of business registration from The State Law office, that is set to take effect.

The act was signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2015 alongside six new legislations set to transform Kenya’s business landscape and thrust the country’s competitiveness.

Entrepreneurs should now expect a fastracked business registration process. Low foreign investment has previously been blamed on the State Law Office’s slow process that was marred by constant delays.

Services such as incorporation of companies, registration of business names and partnerships will be devolved to promote local business ideas/legal entities, cut the costs of registration and operations which are currently being offered in Nairobi only.

For better service delivery, the independent body expects to have an office in Nairobi as well branches across the country.
