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.

Why You MUST get a Utility Bill in Your Name!

What is a utility bill?

A utility bill is a detailed invoice from a service provider for your consumption of utilities such as electricity, internet, water. Some companies send you the utility bills monthly or every 2 months, especially for us in Trinidad and Tobago for electricity.

S.U.B.S.C.R.I.B.E to my Youtube Channel! I give free Legal Advice, Free Business Advice and Free Anti-Money Laundering Training on my Youtube Channel. Email me your legal questions: sydney@asyndeygroup.com

Why are utility bills important for entrepreneurs?

As a business owner, you will be asked to present a utility bill as your proof of address in order to conduct the following transactions:

1.Open a Business Bank Account (as well as personal bank account);

2.Get a Business Loan;

3.Get a credit card;

4.Purchasing a car

5.To get a mortgage to buy land

Subscribe to my Youtube channel.

What is Proof of address?

This is verification of your residential address. Financial institutions and listed businesses in Trinidad must obtain a utility bill from all customers. This is stated in law , particularly at Regulation Proof of Address 15 (1) (b) “permanent address and proof thereof” Financial Obligations Regulations. There is a body of laws and regulations that aims to fight anti-money laundering and the countering the financing of terrorism.

What happens if utility bill is not in your name?

Authorization Letters

If the bill is not in your name, you must present a letter of authorization from the person whose name appears on the bill as well as a copy of the persons National ID card. The signature on the letter must match the signature on the person’s ID card.

Parents/Family

Usually the utility bill is in the name of a parent and you can get a letter of authorization from your parent.

Tenants

There are other cases where, you are renting, and your landlord has to provide you with the authorization letter and copy of ID.

Deceased Persons

In the event that the person whose name is on the utility bill is deceased, this bill will not be accepted by financial institutions. You will be asked to return to the Service Provider and follow their internal process to get the name changed.

Best Practice?

It would be wise to get a utility bill in your name; it can be as easy as taking out the internet in your name in the instance of persons living with their friends.

Can I upgrade my Sole Trader to a Limited Liability Company in Trinidad and Tobago?

My new client told me that he already has a Sole Trader business and he now wants to change it to a Limited Liability Company. He told me that the business was performing well and was desirous of purchasing land. He wanted to buy the land in the name of his business. The bank informed them that the land can only be purchased in the name of a Limited Liability Company not a Sole Trader Business. The reason is that a limited liability company is a separate legal entity. A sole trader is not a separate legal entity recognized by law.

To learn the differences between a Sole Trader and a Limited Liability Company in Trinidad and Tobago , buy my eBook for only $19.99USD https://gum.co/XSBCN

You should consider upgrading to a limited liability if you want to:

Purchase land in the name of your company;

Purchase vehicles in the name of your company;

Gift your company to your children (sole traderships and partnerships cannot be passed down to anyone, the business ends with your passing.)

The process is so simple that you can do it on your own. If you need guidance to complete the forms correctly, buy my eBook NOW!! https://gum.co/qxbBF

What is Credit Card Skimming? Anti-Money Laundering Consultant Trinidad

Credit card skimming is a type of credit card theft where a device is used to steal sensitive information when the card is used in a legitimate transaction. The device is called a skimmer and it reads the customers personal information that was stored on the magnetic strip of the card.

In Trinidad in 2019 persons were charged and convicted with being in possession of fraudulent ATM cards and large sums of cash knowing that the money was the proceeds of fraud and for the purpose of money laundering.

These defendants were non nationals who came to Trinidad armed with 182 fradualent ATM cards. They visited different ATMS and were withdrawing sums of money. They arised the suspicion of security personnel of financial institutions.

Law enforcement became involved and the defendants were detained and brought before the courts.

It seems that there is a large international network of cyber criminals who steal credit card information. At our ports of entry in Trinidad, officials are oftentimes unable to identify the skimming devices as they resemble smart phone accessories.

Persons may be making purchases at your company with fradulent credit cads! Want to know how to protect yourself?

Do Non Profit Organisations (NPOs) file Annual Returns?

Yes or no? Remember that a Non Profit Organization is really a company that is not operating for a profit. That is to say, the sole purpose of the charity is for some noble or social cause. Any profits are reinvested into the Non Profit Organization. Compared to a “for profit company” where profits are distributed among the directors of the company.

The answer is YES!! A Non Profit Organization must file Annual Returns every year with the Companies Registrar.

What is an annual return?

An Annual Return is critical to a company since this document presents a correct, updated reflection of the company’s state of affairs. This document presents an up to date snapshot of all directors and officers of the company, share capital as well as company debts. Once this document is filed at the Companies Registry, this information will be registered with the Registrar. When conducting company business, banks and other stakeholders will request the most recent Annual Returns. From this document all present company officers and company debts can be discerned.

When should a Company file an Annual Return??

The law states that a company should file an Annual Return no later than 30 days after each anniversary date of its continuance, incorporation or amalgamation at the Companies Registrar .

What happens if a company fails or refuses to file an Annual Return?

Where a Company fails or refuses to file a document with the Registrar within the time specified in the Act, the Registrar shall be entitled to collect from that Company a penalty of three hundred dollars ($300.00) for every month or part thereof.

The Companies Act of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago requires companies to file an Annual Return every year even if the company has not been trading. In accordance with Section 194 (1) of the Companies Act of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, each company must file an Annual Return no later than thirty (30) days after each anniversary date of incorporation in the applicable form. At any point, the officers of the company can change directors, corporate secretaries, issue shares or acquire loans and these changes must be captured in the Registrar’s records of the company.
