Does CAC registration prevents you from registering with SMEDAN? 

No. While Corporate Affairs Commision registers all businesses in Nigeria including mega and multi businesses, SMEDAN focuses on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises which are the major drive of Nigerian economy and sustaining the largest percentage of Nigerians doing businesses.
