The primary 50 individuals who register a business name on the Corporate Affairs and Mental Property Office’s booth, on the Business Fair and Expo – the Community Edition, this Saturday, June 25, can pay 50 per cent of the price of a business name registration.
Which means that those 50 registrants could have to pay $52.00 in money, as a substitute of the present registration fee. This is applicable only to individuals registering a sole proprietorship and is proscribed to 1 business name registration per person.
Individuals are advised that the registration of business names is a web based process. As such, registrants must walk with a soft copy of valid, government-issued identification (passport, ID card, or driving licence) for upload to the system to finish the registration process. This might be saved as a pdf document or jpeg image on individuals’ phones or other devices, or of their email.
The Business Fair and Expo – the Community Edition shall be held at Hoyte’s Pavilion and Playing Field, Hoyte’s Village, St. James, from 10:00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. It’s being hosted by the Ministry of Energy and Business, along with the Barbados Trust Fund Limited (BTFL).
The initiative is aimed toward stimulating economic activity throughout the productive sectors and targets business owners, individuals in search of investment opportunities and other members of the general public.
It’ll also give individuals a chance to interact with ministry officials, as they share information on starting a business, business development, accessing financing and coping with debt, in addition to standards development, amongst others.
There shall be several DJs playing music throughout the day, and from 5:00 p.m., there shall be a cultural presentation and several other live performances from popular local artistes. (BGIS)
