All applications for trade and
business licenses must now be submitted directly to the Trade and Business
Licensing Office at Sussex House, Elgin Avenue, and all payments for trade and
business licenses must be made at the Trade and Business Licensing Office.
The changes come into effect March
1st, 2010 when the Trade and Business Licensing Office officially becomes a
unit within the Department of Commerce and Investment.
The new Department was created following
recent changes in the national policy framework to stimulate inward and local
investments in the Cayman Islands.
A press release states Trade and Business will
be integrated with the Department to further streamline efforts and facilitate
greater efficiency in the licensing process. With direct access to licensing
information, the Department will be better able to track the success of inward
investment and small business development programmes, and thereby provide the
statistical information needed to make sound economic policy decisions.
The Trade and Business Office is
located at Sussex House, Elgin Avenue, and hours of operation are Monday to
Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Please send all mail to:
