~ June 31 promotion deadline ~
PHILIPSBURG–St. Maarten Chamber of Commerce and Industry (COCI) reminds the business community that they can make use of COCI-2U service which was introduced mid-March.
The service entails COCI going to the business establishment after a request has been made for an excerpt and delivering the requested document and at the same time picking up of annual fees due, among other Chamber-to-business related matters.
The process entails the customer contacting COCI either by telephone, fax, email or via Facebook with their request. COCI will then proceed to prepare the document (s) requested and deliver said to the customer. Payment could be made by cash, check or credit card, and a receipt of payment will be provided to the customer on the spot by a COCI representative.
This service makes it easier for entrepreneurs to do business as it eliminates the need to wait in long traffic lines only to be faced with a lack of parking when in Philipsburg.
In connection with COCI’s 40th anniversary since its establishment, the Chamber is continuously looking at improving its services for the business community, it was stated in a press release on Tuesday.
The Simpson Bay Public Center is also a venue that businesses can make use of in requesting documents and making their annual fee payment. As part of its 40th anniversary in 2019, COCI has decided to waive outstanding dues before 2014, only if a company owes for the period 2015 to 2019, they pay for that period in order to be current. This special promotion after being available for a four-month period, will end June 31, 2019.
Businesses that are in arrears at the Chamber are invited to call a COCI customer service representative at tel. 542-3595 or 542-3590 to discuss a payment arrangement. Those who are experiencing challenges paying their annual registration fee may also approach COCI’s customer service representative about a payment plan.
