“DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION OF BUSINESS NAMES IN NIGERIA”

Business names in Nigeria are to be registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) at least within 28 days after their commencement of business.
Also note that registration of business name is not necessary where a business name contains just names and initials of its owners.

My authorities are sections 570, 572, 573 and 574 of Companies and Allied Matters Act, 1990.
