In-land revenue upgrades web platform, takes NIB business registration online

A new integrated online application process for obtaining and renewing business licenses, will make it easier for employers and self-employed individuals looking to and currently operating in this jurisdiction, to obtain their licenses.

The Department of Inland Revenue (DIR) just recently upgraded its online platform to allow for the integration of the National Insurance Board’s (NIB) business registration process.

In addition, the upgrade will allow individuals and companies to apply for letters of good standing through the same platform.

In a statement issued Friday, NIB said, “This advancement will allow employers and self-employed individuals to register new business renewals and obtain contribution status letters quicker and easier. Employers and employees can look forward to being able to register their business online by February 5.”

“Unfortunately, persons seeking the contribution status letters for permit renewals for the department of immigration will undergo the same process until further notice. Persons may continue making NIB contribution payments either in-person at an NIB office or online through the Royal Bank of Canada,” the statement continued.

NIB business registration and letter of good standing applications can be submitted online at www.inlandrevenue.finance.gov.bs.
