Are you closing down your company because of the Pandemic? Get my ebook

How to dissolve a Limited Liability Company in Trinidad and Tobago

File an application with the Registrar of Companies that will state the name of the company, the company registration number, the reason for dissolving the company among other things. The application must be signed by 2 directors or the Corporate Secretary of the company.

Get my ebook on Amazon for only $9.99USD. Professionals charge high fees to dissolve limited liability companies. With this ebook…you can do it yourself.

Closing down a Limited Liability Company in Trinidad is a complex process. There are employees involved as well as creditors. It is possible that after the Pandemic in 2020, many business owners will close down their limited liability companies. A company may be dissolved because of irreparable damage to reputation or accruing penalties for failure to file Annual Returns.

Subscribe to my Youtube Channel for videos on business/law/anti-money laundering

The process to close down a company takes a minimum of 6 months. The notice of application is advertised in the Gazette and persons who are owed money may get involved.

After the application to dissolve the company is filed , a new company can be formed . The new name cannot be the same as the name of the company that was dissolved. It can be close but the records will show that your proposed name is already reserved. After the dissolving process is completed, the name will become available again.

Thanks for reading!

What is the United Nations (UN) 2253 List ?: AML Compliance Consultants

Initially, this terrorist list contained a listing of the Taliban states that were subject to a limited air embargo and frozen assets.

Over time, the regime evolved and the measures became a targeted assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo against designated individuals and entities

On 17 December 2015, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2253 (2015). With the adoption of this resolution, the Security Council decided to expand the listing criteria to include individuals and entities supporting the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)[1].

The resolution also directs the Monitoring Team to submit reports on the global threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as Da’esh), Al-Qaida, and associated individuals, groups, undertakings and entities. https://scsanctions.un.org/fop/fop?xml=htdocs/resources/xml/en/consolidated.xml&xslt=htdocs/resources/xsl/en/consolidated.xsl

Should LB/FIs reference new and existing employees against the Sanctions Lists: AML Compliance Consultants

It is good practice to reference the name of new and existing staff against Sanction Lists. Regulation 5 of the Financial Obligation Regulations requires that financial institutions and listed businesses use the best practices of the industry to recruit employees who have integrity and are competent.

This practice will ensure that individuals who are designated as terrorist or terrorist financiers are not retained by the regulated entity.

What is Tipping off in Guyana?; AML Compliance Consultant

According to Section 5 (1) The Guyana Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Act No. 3 of 2000 it is an offence for  a person who knows or suspects that a suspicious transaction report or related information  is reported to the FIU, or that an investigation into money laundering, terrorist financing, or the proceeds of crime has been, is being or is about to be made, to divulge that fact or other information to another whereby the investigation is likely to be prejudiced.

(2) A person who commits an offence under subsection (1) is liable to summary conviction to a  fine of one million dollars and to imprisonment of 3 years.

The rationale is to prevent the sharing of confidential information about a SAR/STR that was submitted to the Financial Intelligence Unit being shared in the public domain. If the subject of the SAR/STR learns that a report was filed against them. They may flee the jurisdiction or destroy evidence.
