Kitwe council extends trading license renewal

THE Kitwe City Council has extended the period of renewing trading licenses following an outcry from the local business community. In an interview in Kitwe yesterday, senior legal assistant Paul Tembo said following an outcry from various sections of the business community, the local authority had decided to extend the renewal period to December 31st, 2016.

“As a local authority, we have received a lot of complaints from some sections of the business community who did not renew their trading licenses within the stipulated period which runs from July 31st to October 31st. It is for this reason that we decided to extend the renewal period to December 31st,” Mr Tembo said.

“It is the hope of the local authority that those members of the business community who did not renew their licenses within the window period would take advantage of the goodwill of the council to renew their trading licenses because they council will not extend the period again.” Mr Tembo said those who would not renew their trading licenses within the extended period should be ready to pay the penalty fee of 50 percent of their respective trading license fees.

“The extension period of renewing the license has been made so that those who did not renew their licenses can renew them without any penalty fee. For those who will not pay their trading licenses within the extended period, they should be ready to pay the penalty fee of 50 percent of their respective trading license fees,” he said.
