All Municipal Councils can now issue licenses to businesses within their town boundary which will be done within a 48-hour time period.
This is part of the new process for business licensing in Fiji which came in effect from the 1st of January this year.
The Ministry of Local Government says the management of the business licences for those businesses that are located in rural areas including villages, informal settlements and those who are located outside town boundaries will still be carried out by the District Offices in the respective areas.
The Ministry says the new process is a modernised approach which is faster and simpler and will allow any type and size of business to apply for a license to operate.
They say that those who want to register a new business now only require three documents; which are a copy of Business Registration, Tax Identification Number and a License Application Form.
