What is a Micro business?

A micro business is a small business that does not have to be registered at CIPC. A micro business can be started with very little money and is easier to run than a small business because there are fewer rules and regulations on micro businesses.

A micro business is meant to help people that want to start very small without having to go through all the trouble that normal small businesses must go through. A micro business is usually run by one person that owns the business. You will be able to employ someone to help in the business if you can afford the salary for the employee.
