A CR12 is an official confirmation letter by the Registrar of Companies at office of the Attorney General as to who are the listed shareholders/directors of a company. It also confirms that the company’s records exist at the Company registry. It is usually signed off by the Registrar of Companies with the details of company’s shareholders nationality, respective shareholding and company’s nominal shares, date of registration and postal address. A CR12 is usually used by banks to verify the directors of a company prior to opening a bank account and it is also required when applying for government tenders. It takes up-to 2 weeks for the Registrar of Companies to issue a certified CR-12 upon request at the Company Registry.
