Do you need to Register a society, Club or Association in Kenya?


Society registration in Kenya compliance ensures that all societies must be registered by the registrar of societies. A society that is not registered or has applied for registration within twenty eight days of its formation shall not carry on any business without authorization by the Registrar. If such a society solicits for donations or contributions from members or from any other person without such authorization shall be conducting unlawful business.

The requirements for Society registration  in Kenya are:

  • A list of designated members ( 10 members minimum);
  • The names, occupation and postal addresses of the officials Chairman, treasurer and secretary;
  • Constitution of the society which must contain name, postal address and objects of the society;
  • Application form A and B each in duplicate signed by three of the officers.
  • Form A (application for registration of a society)
  • Form B ( notification of address and registered office of a society)

Registration of a society procedures:

Name search.

A name search is conducted to determine whether proposed names are available for registration.

Preparation of the constitution and necessary forms.

The society’s constitution is prepared and Forms A and B are completed.

Lodging of the documents for registration purposes.

The duly filled forms and the constitution are there after lodged with the registrar of societies together with the prescribed fee.

Issuance of a certificate.

Once the application is approved a certificate of registration of society is issued. If the application does not comply with the societies rules a Notice of refusal is formally issued.
