CAC extends deadline line for POS operators’ registration

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has announced the extension of the deadline for registration of all Point of Sale Operators (PoS) by additional sixty days. The registration is in line with legal requirements and the directives of the Central Bank of Nigeria”. The initial deadline was 7th July 2024.

The extension period which begins from 7th July, 2024 to 5th September, 2024, is to allow operators, especially those in remote areas who might have encountered network glitches to register.

The commission in a statement posted on its X handle stated thus:

“The Corporate Affairs Commission wishes to notify Fintech Operators also known as Point of Sales (POS) Operators that the initial deadline of 7th July, 2024 given for the registration of sole Agents, Super Agents and Agents has been extended for a period of sixty days beginning from 7th July, 2024 to the 5th September 2024.

“This is to give sufficient time to Operators particularly those in remote areas who might have encountered network challenges to so register and continue with their businesses,”

 “Operators who fail or refuse to register at the end of the extended deadline run the risk of losing such businesses and prosecution for aiding and abetting criminal activities.”
