Company Search

(excl. VAT)
Per Search

Provides information about companies and organisations registered in South Africa.

The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) database stores information about all registered companies, including details about their directors and auditors.

Lexis WinDeed offers the best Director and Company searches currently available on the market by catering for data capture errors at CIPC. The result is a more comprehensive director profile as it makes directorships more transparent by showing other possible matches for the directors associated with the company you searched on.

Searches can be performed by providing a company name or registration number as search criteria.

Company search results may return the following information:
General company information
The company information returned will include the company’s current status, registration number, enterprise type, industry and registered address information when available. See ‘Notes’ section below for more information on the new formatting for company registration numbers.
Current and Previous directors
The director information returned includes the person’s name, ID number and directorship status.
For each director listed, a list of other possible matches will be returned. Note that the printed version of the report does not reflect the other possible matches for the director.

The auditor/account officer information returned includes the name, professional code and number, address details and other important dates.
