HONIARA, Solomon Islands (Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corp. April 1) – Malaita Province in the Solomon Islands has started a new initiative this year in appointing revenue collectors in each of the 33 wards in the Province.

The Province says the revenue collectors will be responsible for collecting licence fees from all businesses, including logging companies.

It says shipping companies servicing Malaita are also reminded that business licences and passenger levies are to be paid.

Businesses in Malaita, including its outer islands, have been reminded to renew their business licences and payments of licence fees for the 2005/06 financial year, which starts today.

Businesses which have outstanding amounts for previous years are also reminded to pay those dues.

Meanwhile, licences for businesses dealing in wildlife have been suspended, pending a review of provincial laws.

The Province says business licences and fees requirements will be strictly enforced.
