The Registrar General's Department (RGD) has introduced a new online portal by the end of September.

The online portal is expected to allow businesses to upload business information and have their businesses registered within days.

The introduction of the online portal is part of the Department's move to automate operations there.

The e-Registrar Portal provides clients the ability to transact business online with the RGD with Business Registration, Marriage Registration, Administration of Estates and e-payments.

The Deputy Registrar General, Jemima Oware indicated existing businesses that do not register on the portal before September 30 would be taken off the records of the Department.

Speaking at the launch, the Minister of Communications and Media Relations, Dr Edward Omane Boamah said the new portal would not only ensure convenience for the business owner but also inspire trust and confidence in the Registrar General's Department.

He added that it would also eliminate the phenomenon of middle men or 'goro boys'.

The Deputy Minister for Justice, Dr. Dominic Ayinie challenged the Registrar General Department to ensure businesses could be registered on the portal within 48 hours.

Businesses can register at any of the RGD's regional offices in Accra, Sekondi-Takoradi, Kumasi and Tamale for Portal Accounts.
