In order to reduce delays caused by incomplete applications, as
of Tuesday, 1 March, trade and business licensing applications must
be submitted directly to the Business Licensing Counter, in the
Government Administration Building; and in the presence of the
person submitting the documents, counter staff will check the
application in order to ensure that it is complete.
Applications will no longer be accepted either by mail, or by
persons dropping them off at the counter and leaving immediately
thereafter, because of the volume of incomplete applications that
were received in this manner.
'Rather than just putting the applications aside, counter
staff would try instead to contact persons in order to get their
applications into the system for processing', said Department
of Commerce and Investment Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh.
'However, this still resulted in delays not just for the
persons who submitted incomplete applications, but also for persons
whose documentation was complete, because instead of processing
applications the counter staff were trying to track down persons
who needed to provide additional documentation', he
To submit an application, individuals – or their designate
– must produce documentation in person, by visiting the
counter, between 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday; and wait for
the counter staff to check their documentation. Generally, the wait
will be no longer than 15 minutes, Mr Rajkumarsingh said.
