A share certificate is a document that is issued to each shareholder by a company. This document acts as legal proof for ownership stating the number of shares shown. Each shareholder needs to be issued their own unique share certificate. A share register document is a list of all active shareholders in a company. This document is updated on an ongoing basis, whenever there is a change in shareholdership.

Companies are required to issue both these documents after registration. When opening a bank account for your company, your bank will probably ask you to provide them with these documents The CIPC, which registers companies, does not keep any information on shareholders. This means that they cannot issue share certificates.
