The Bank of Jamaica, BOJ, has announced that it has suspended the primary agent remittance licences issued to Paymaster Jamaica Limited.

In an advisory, the BOJ says the suspension took effect July 5, 2024.

It says Paymaster will not be able to operate as a primary agent from nineteen locations across the island, until further notice.

The company can, however, continue to operate as a sub-agent of six other primary agents and will offer those services at 47 other locations.
