Anyone engaging in a profession, trade, business or calling as set out in the Profession, Trade and Business Registration Act Cap. 373, is reminded that annual registration fees for the year 2012 must be paid during the month of January.
According to Registrar of the Supreme Court, Marva Clarke: "Failure to meet this deadline will result in payment of fees twice that which is normally due.?? In addition, any person who fails, neglects or refuses to register and engages in any profession, trade, business or calling, is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of $500."????????????????
Based on the categories set out in the said Act, fees are payable to the Registrar, Registration Department, Judicial Centre, Whitepark Road, St. Michael, or the Chief Labour Officer, Labour Department, 2nd Floor East, Warrens Office Complex, St. Michael, as the case may be.
The Registrar has advised that persons failing to pay the fee within the determined period shall be treated as being unregistered.
