MOC Online Business Re-registration Deadline Extended Final Time to 31 December 2016
By Joseph Lovell
On 14th October 2016, the Ministry of Commerce (“MOC”) issued Notification No. 3890 on the Extension of Business Re-registration through Automated Online Business Registration (the “Notification”). The Notification extends the re-registration deadline until 31st December 2016 in order to allow more time for non-compliant companies and other affected entities to make this mandatory e-filing prior to any enforcement action being taken against them. This extension follows previous extensions and is expected to be the final deadline for the re-registration process.
Business entities registered before 4 January 2016 that have not yet re-registered their businesses online should note that failure to re-register could result in the loss of rights and status under the Law on Commercial Enterprises and Law on Commercial Rules and Register.
The MOC has also warned that if an enterprise fails to re-register before the stated final deadline, it will notify the Ministry of Economy and Finance to settle tax obligations and will submit the matter to the courts for legal action.
