Anyone wanting to start a company in Jamaica must first meet the legal and bureaucratic stipulations set out in the Companies Act. The process may be a daunting one to those who do not have the know-how or who are not aware of the procedures that should be followed in order to legally launch a registered company.
Persons interested in starting a company must first find out from the Companies Office of Jamaica whether the intended company name is available and acceptable. Next, the Articles of Incorporation must be stamped by the Stamp Commissioner and the company documents must be filed at the Companies Office of Jamaica. Also, anyone wishing to start a company must obtain a National Insurance Scheme number from the Ministry of Labour and Social Security and a Taxpayer Registration Number from the Collector of Taxes. The owner of the company must also obtain General Consumption Tax Registration.
