After that,click on "Name Availability Search" and enter any two names that are creative and uncommon as your proposed business name. Try to avoid cliché names. 

The submission will cost you only N500 an d you can make the payment via any credit card or any online payment methods. It takes two weeks to get their feedback. If the name you chose is disapproved, then try again.

2. Register the business name you chose: After the approval of your business name, then the next step is it's registration. Log into your CAC account and click on "Action", download the letter of approval from the CAC portal. After opening it, make sure to take note of your approval number.
Then you go back to the website and click on "Registration". It is located on the top left of the website's page. Select business name and paste the approval document on the provided space for it and hit ENTER. 
Please ensure you know the nature of the business, its proprietors and any other relevant questions. You can always save and exit the form anywhere you encounter difficulties. 

*When it comes to enter the nature of your business, always try to have at least three natures of business, and also ensure to add General Contracts.
