How do I register a business?

To register a business, you must first register for a ttconnect ID and complete a TTBizLink registration which would enable your access to the e-Company Registration module on the Single Electronic Window (SEW) Portal.


The TTBizLink e-Service allows individuals and Attorneys-at-Law practicing in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) to electronically conduct Name Search, Name Reservation, and Registration of a Business and Incorporation of a Company.


Clients are encouraged to utilize the reengineered ttconnect ID processes which have been automated for increased client convenience.

To register a company/business using TTBizLink please follow these steps:


Step 1 – Login to www.ttbizlink.gov.tt with your ttconnect ID and password


Step 2 – Click on the e-Company Registration (Subscribed) link.  The link will be highlighted in red once the role is subscribed  


Step 3 – Begin your Company Registration by clicking Name Search 


Step 4 – Once the desired name is not in use proceed to the Name Reservation section and click New Application and proceed to fill out the required fields and click Save when completed. 


Step 5 – Please visit Companies Registry Payment Portal to effect the payment for the name reservation.  Applicants will need to have access to their TTBizLink Application Reference Number and a valid credit card to complete their transaction.

 
Step 6 – Applicants will receive an email approving the name reservation which instructs them to proceed to Register/Incorporate their Business/Company. Upon receipt of approval for the Name Reservation, applicants must click New Application in either the Business Registration (Sole Trader and Partnerships) or Company Incorporation (limited liability companies).  Fill out all required fields.


Step 7 – Applicants will receive an email indicating that the Business Registration/Company Incorporation is approved.  Please visit Companies Registry Payment Portal to effect the payment for the Business Registration/Company Incorporation.  Applicants will need to have access to their TTBizLink Application Reference Number and a valid credit card to complete their transaction
