How to Get Started to Invest in Sales & Export of Crude Processed Solid Mineral

In the first place, get your business registered. So, whether you are an artisanal miner, mine broker, local seller or exporter, the first thing you will do is to register your business with CAC. This registration gives you the legal standing to contract business with other legal entities. In fact, your business registration is a legal platform for you to do business in Nigeria.

And, when and if you desire to register one, you are to provide the following information for the business registration.

  • Approved name through name availability Search
  • The list of and shareholding of directors – minimum of 2
  • Personal information of the directors, including their IDs
  • Filling and filing of the application forms and documentations
  • Evidence of payment of the appropriate fees; depending on the number of shares.


The second thing to do is to get your Tax documentations formalized. That means, you should immediately obtain your Tax Identification Number (TIN). For a company, this comes from Federal Inland Revenue services (FIRS).  And for business name, you get it from your state of residence Internal Revenue Service. This is very compulsory now. This is because, you may not be allowed to operate a bank account without TIN. In fact, other business entities would require it also to record your with-holding tax payments. So, get it before you launch into doing a business transaction.

Thirdly, regularize your banking requirements. You don’t need to be told that a bank account is required for every business transaction. Remember, that the society is going cashless. So, make time to regularise your banking requirements. If need be also get your on-line banking Apps and other applications installed.
