Converting from a business name to a Limited Liability Company

This has been our procedure for converting from a sole proprietorship or partnership to a company:

  • When you are ready to register the company. You would fill out the
    application as normal
  • The application must also include a letter of
    intent to close the business name within two weeks of the Company
  • A form BN6 is to be filled out to remove the
    business name after the company registration is complete.
  • If the business name certificate is still valid you have to carry in the certificate at the end of the process.

After that you are done. Dealing with Jamaican executive agencies at present means that the approval or rejection takes weeks to get through. It’s best to use a service like StartupRobot to help you get through this process quickly. It will save you time and money.
