CBN has issued a July 7, 2024 deadline to PoS operators to complete registration with CAC.

The development aims to safeguard Fintech customers and bolster the economy, with industry stakeholders pledging support for smooth implementation.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has mandated Point of Sales (PoS) operators to register with the Corporate Affairs Corporation (CAC) by July 7, 2024, aiming to fortify Fintech businesses and bolster the economy.

VerseNews reports that the Registrar-General/Chief Executive Officer (CAC) Hussaini Magaji (SAN) made this known in Abuja on Tuesday during a meeting between the Financial Technology Fintech companies.

Speaking at the event, the CAC boss said the two-month timeline to register their agents, merchants, and individuals with the commission, was “in line with legal requirements and the directives of the Central Bank of Nigeria”.

“The measure aims at safeguarding the businesses of Fintech’s customers and strengthening the economy”.

The CAC boss also stated that a statement titled ‘CAC, PoS Operators Agree To Two-Month Deadline To Register Their Agents And Merchants To Strengthen The Fintech Industry‘was released to the effect.

He stressed that the action was equally backed by Section 863, Subsection 1 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, CAMA 2020, and the 2013 CBN guidelines on agent banking.

Magaji explained that the timeline for the registration which will expire on July 7, 2024, was not targeted at any groups or individuals but aimed at protecting businesses.

Several speakers from the Fintech industry pledged to collaborate with the commission to ensure hitch-free implementation of the directive.

Some of them, however, stressed the need for adequate and collective sensitisation, to ensure that the exercise achieved the desired results.

The Special Adviser to the President on ICT Development and Innovation, Tokoni Peter, in his remarks, pledged to ensure smooth facilitation of the process in line with the Renewed Hope Initiative of the present administration.
