• Cape Town Time:


There are many options to do business with the City of Cape Town. Business owners and entrepreneurs are required to register as a supplier in order to capitalise on these options. The registration process is a two phase process.

Before you register as a supplier, you must register with the National Treasury Central Suppliers Database (CSD).

  1. Register with the Central Suppliers Database

    To register, you will need:

    • company name
    • company registration number
    • income tax number
    • VAT number
    • bank details
    • physical and postal address
    • not more than five business commodities and a good description of each
  2. Once you have registered, you will be issued with a CSD registration number, which you will use when submitting your supplier application forms to the City.
