The Companies Office of Jamaica, COJ’s, online platform, Electronic Business Registration Form, eBRF, will be expanding its services to offer persons the opportunity to register their businesses and companies from anywhere in the world, by the end of the year.
The eBRF, which was launched last year, currently facilitates persons registering the names of their business or company.
The COJ’s Public Relations Officer, Kawain Fearon, says the new venture is part of the organisation’s aim to improve access to their services. He was speaking at the 8th Biennial Jamaica Diaspora Conference.
The eBRF provides another contact point for customers to engage and facilitates a business and customer-friendly environment.
By enabling customers to conduct their business online, COJ will be able to improve efficiency and ability to cater to the needs of customers.
According to Mr. Fearon, the COJ is anticipating an improvement in the Doing Business Report published by the World Bank, as a result of the launch of the online platform.
Jamaica is currently ranked sixth on the Ease of Starting a Business index.
