How to create a share class

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Once you have registered your company with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (“CIPC”), InfoDocs can help you to create your shareholder records in under 10 mins.

If you have already added a company to your profile, you can create shareholder records by starting with the creation of a share class.

Log in to your InfoDocs account here. If you don’t already have an account, register for a free trial.

To create a share class, follow the steps below:

Step 1: In your company profile, navigate to the Share Classes tab, and click on Create New Share Class.

Step 2: In the Create New Share Class box, fill in the date that the share class was created. There is also an option to select the Incorporation Date of the company or the current date for your convenience. Name the shares, select the Share Type, and then specify the number of Authorised Shares for this specific share class. Registered companies will pull through share information from CIPC. You have the option to all the authorised shares for the company if there is only one share class. Click Save when you are done.

Step 3: The new share class should show up in the Share Classes tab.
