Anyone paid their Trade License. Seems there is a $100 Admin fee this year that isn't mentioned/itemised on the Bill.

Don't necessarily have a problem with it but it is out of the blue (to me) and a hefty % increase for lower License fees although I have no clue what a lower or Upper fee is.

For the record I think to a certain extent Trade Licenses and especially Property Taxes are way too cheap at the higher end and SPTC a desperately need more funds to further improve the Caye.

Yes we have all been charged the $100 admin/application fee, plus the trade license fee.

The application fee was supposed to be paid back in November and the trade license fee was to be paid by December 31st.

I paid BZ$100 for each of the two licences. One for Trade and the other for the Restaurant.

Phil what did you pay for your Trade Licences?

Although I agree that they are cheap unless they actually do something constructive with the Money throughout the community it is just a waste of money.

Curious what everyone is paying for their trade Licenses. Real estate companies are $2,500.00 BZD annually. what about your sector?

I see not many people have answered the question of the cost of their Trade Licenses?

I wonder why.
