Register company or register a company?

Post by micca »

There is one rule of articles I am a little bit confused about that is related to not writing articles when the noun is a part of an action. For example it's "go to school" and not "go to a school".

So does this rule apply here or not, "register (a) company" or "log in (a) user"?

The article is required in both cases.

'Go to school' is an unusual exception to the general rule.
