The Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria has launched a new individual registration portal. Speaking in Lagos, FRC Executive Secretary Daniel Asapokhai said: “The new individual registration portal enables a registration with the council at the comfort of your office, home or indeed anywhere internet is available without a physical visit to our offices..

“Furthermore, it reduces the registration process period to the barest minimum. With the new individual registration portal, we expect to issue registration numbers within 48 hours after success completion of the online registration process.”

The Nation reports that Asapokhai called on all professional accountants and others involved in financial reporting to ensure that they registered.
