Who We Are
The Business Registration Service is a State Corporation established to administer policies, laws and other matters relating to the registration of Companies, partnerships and firms, and corporations carrying on business under a business name, bankruptcy, hire-purchase, and security rights (Section 4(1) of BRS Act, 2015). This role is critical in improving the ease of doing business in Kenya and economic growth at large. This huge mandate bestowed on the Service requires that it operates in a strategic and focused manner. This Strategic Plan provides the roadmap for the implementation and coordination of the policies, laws and different players involved in ease of doing business.
The Business Registration Service (BRS), is the sole custodian of a list of all companies and information for entities registered in Kenya and maintains registers, data and records on registrations carried out by the Service in a central database.
BRS has not only adopted the concept of “moving data to people” but also “putting people first”and serving the people in a better, faster and in a more responsive manner.
