18 July 2003 www.cipro.gov.za Call Centre: 086 184 3384 Notes on changes to procedures at the Companies Division of Cipro
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CHANGES As you know by now, the Registrar is in the process of phasing out revenue stamps and by April 2004 no revenue stamps will be accepted by the office. Initially this will be replaced by an account for agents, with an internet payment option to follow. The second phase was implemented on 7 July 2003, when we allowed agents to lodge companies documentation without revenue stamps. Agents will be billed for the transaction value. Electronic lodgement of CM6, CM8 and CM8A’s were also implemented on 7 July 2003. CIPRO initiated an agent forum and updates of what was discussed will be placed on the web.
