Business Owners can no longer transfer their licenses for use by their partners in business

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 16/02/2017

Courts can fine Business Owners for 10thousand pa’anga, for allowing another Operator who takes over from them if they leave the company, to use the same business license.

This is according to the Minister of Revenue and customs – Hon. Tevita Lavemaau.

This was one of the issues discussed in Parliament this week, after reports that some Tongan business owners register for a license, and then leave, while foreign business owners particularly Chinese and Indians continue running the Business with the same license.

Contacts have been made to the Ministry of Labour for the detail of this issue but to no avail.
