Step 1 – Locate the company to update

Find the company by entering some search criteria (for example, either the company name or the company number).
From the Search Results select the company to update. Learn more about searching for a company.
Step two – Update the company’s details
Once you have located the company to maintain, you can update all of your company details.
Important: updating the Samoa Companies Register is a legal requirement, however, it is not a substitute for updating your own company records. You must also comply with the Companies Act in keeping your company records up to date, accurate and complete.
