BRNC Certificate

A Business Register Number is basically like an ID document for businesses. If you wish to register your vehicle under your business name, you need to apply for a BRNC (Business Register Number Certificate). At Cathy’s, we can assist with the documentation needed as well as the Q4You service.

When do I need to apply for a BRNC?

  • Only when you register a vehicle in your business name for the first time

Without a BRN-Certificate, your vehicle cannot be registered in the business name. This certificate is only applicable for businesses with CK1 or CK2 CIPRO documents. CK1 document refers to businesses with the “Pty (Ltd)” description in the business name. CK2 document refers to businesses with a “CC” description in the business name.
