Government launches online registration of companies

The Tongan government has announced it would launch its new online registry system for the registration of companies, application for business licenses and registration of business names on December 2.

Using this new system customers will file their application online and can freely carry out searches of the online registry in anytime they want.

The ministry will not accept any application or request to amend any registration of companies, application for business licenses and registration of business names on Friday 21 November until December 1, 2014 . This is to ensure smooth transition from the current system into the online service.

The guideline for the online system will be available on November 24, 2014  at www.businessregistries.gov.to. It would outline reduced fees for certain online transactions.

While the re-registration of business names using the online system is free, the current system of lodging application through paper works will still be available.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
