Single Window Clearance for Investment Fiji
November 1, 2014 5:10 am
The process establishing a business here in Fiji will soon become much easier with the creation of a universal form that Investment Fiji is looking into introducing.
The Single Window Clearance is an online system that will include the amalgamation of all the requirements making it easier for people to come in and do business here.
Investment Fiji executive chairman Truman Bradley says it took a lot of hard work to develop this idea but it was worth it.
“When we started this about two years ago there were previously 4000 line items between agencies like name, address, P.O Box and other requirements. We have not got it down to 150 to 180 depending on whether it’s a sole trader or a public company. All of those Government agencies have independent requirements but by going to a digital system it all becomes one universal form that every screen looks at whether it’s FRCA, Immigration, Reserve Bank or the company office.”
Bradley says this move would truly streamline investment applications into the country because businesses will not have to go through the hassle of dealing with filling out numerous forms.
