The Registrar-General’s Department (RGD) is looking to improve its online business registration processes with the introduction of a new modified system.
The new modified system, according to the Registrar-General, Jemima Oware, follows a step-by-step review of all the current processes for registration and dissolution of businesses in the country.
“The present processes are being reviewed and will form the basis for preparing a new process map covering all existing RGD Business registration services. Stakeholders and the Registrar-General’s Department will then validate the Process Mapping using international best practices.”
“These processes will result into reforms that will translate into the development of a new online software for Businesses and Company registration in Ghana,” read parts of the statement signed by the Registrar-General.
Adding the new modified online business registration system, also forms part of preparations towards the implementation of the Companies Act, 2019 (Act 992).
According to the statement, the review and subsequent implementation of the new system, is part of the existing technical assistance support from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) under the Ghana Investment Climate Advisory Programme and funded by the Swiss Economic Corporation Secretariat (SECO).
