Memorandum of Incorporation

Your company’s memorandum of incorporation (“MOI”) is the most important document governing the actions of your company and its owners and the relationship between them. It is important to ensure that your MOI still reflects the intentions of you and your co-shareholders and directors’ about key issues. For example, what would happen if a shareholder or director decides to leave the company? When will you or the company be forced to buy or sell shares? Whose vote is needed for different decisions? What happens if the company needs more capital? What if a shareholder suddenly passes? Do you have the ability to protect your company against a shareholder that acts to its detriment? Does your MOI gear you for these and other situations or unexpected disputes in a clear and concise way? Are your voting percentages still appropriate? It is vital to ensure that you try and protect yourself and the company as best as possible when it comes to various and often unexpected adverse events affecting your company.

Let us know if you would like us to review your current MOI to see whether it still meets your needs by emailing nandi.pretorius@confiance.co.za or calling us on 021 946 1913.





Trademarks

In business, a name is everything! It is often the first thing a client encounters in relation to your business and generally the one thing that they link to a good customer experience, your product and your unique business offerings.

With registering a trademark, your unique name, slogan or logo will be protected as yours only and you will have a right to prohibit anyone else from using it in their business. Trademark registration protects your name as an intangible property asset against misuse or intellectual property theft that could cause damage to your brand. Once a trademark is registered in your name, it remains exclusively yours for 10 years whereafter you can opt to renew the mark every 10 years to prohibit anyone else from applying for registration of it.

The laws regulating trademarks can be complex and there are certain extensive time periods involved in the process. If this is all a bit too much for you, but you want to keep your brand protected from misuse, we can assist with registering your unique trademark with CIPC.

Contact us if you would like more information or if you are ready to register your unique trademark by emailing nandi.pretorius@confiance.co.za or calling us on 021 946 1913.





Wills

After the upheaval of the last couple of years we are made more aware that getting our affairs in order is not something we should put off doing. One of these essentials is ensuring that our Wills stay up to date.

We encourage you to peruse your current Will to ensure that it accurately reflects your wishes as well as to confirm where your original Will is kept and who would be able to access it after your passing.

We look forward to meeting with you. For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on 021 946 1913 or byron.fourie@confiance.co.za





Liquidation

The current very tough economic times, load shedding, continuous petrol price increases and out of control inflationary hikes are making it very hard for South African businesses to survive. If your business is struggling to pay its debts, you are not alone! Instead of incurring more and more debt or continuing in a debt-ridden state, liquidation or sequestration may be a solution to cancel out your debts legally.

There is therefore no need to have sleepless nights about how to close down your business! To see if liquidation or sequestration can be a solution to your situation, contact us to do a basic assessment.

Deregistration

Experiencing complications surrounding companies or close corporations that you no longer use, but that keep popping up and frustrating your affairs? We can help assess whether deregistration of that entity can be done to end the unwanted extra frustration.

Also, if you are no longer using your company or close corporation and it is now dormant, you are still legally required to file tax returns until the entity is either liquidated or deregistered.

If you don’t have any debts, you can apply for voluntary deregistration through CIPC to avoid further SARS obligations. And from 1 July 2022, you can also voluntarily deregister your company or close corporation even if CIPC has already put that company in the annual return deregistration process.

To see if deregistration can be a solution to your situation, contact us to do a basic assessment.
