The Cidb and the share certificate

If you are applying for CIDB, regardless of Grade, The CIDB shall always request for a share certificate. The share certificate must be certified not older than 3 Months. It must correspond to the number of shares as reflected on your Memorandum of Incorporation. It has to be issued for a private company or an Incorporated company.

I have seen the CIDB turn away applications countless times because of the share certificate. And the reasons vary, as mentioned above. Some clients get rejected because the Share Certificate reflects a different set of shares as compared to their memorandum of incorporation. At Fixonate, if you are applying for a CIDB through our online application, we shall assist you free of charge with obtaining a share certificate.
