The Financial Services Commission (FSC) is pleased to announce that the Belize Companies and Corporate Affairs Registry’s (BCCAR) Online Business Registry System (OBRS) is now live! All registry services under the Business Name Act Cap. 247, Belize Companies Act No. 11 of 2022 and Limited Liability Partnerships Act Cap. 258 are now digital and can easily be accessed via OBRS. This cutting-edge digital platform reduces costs and time to start a business as the public can register and manage their business registration from the convenience of their digital device.
Main features of OBRS include registration of your business entity, access to your business entity profile and history, reminders on annual filing to ensure your business status remains as Active and in Good Standing, verifiable E- certificates of registration or incorporation, name reservation and E- filing. All documents held by the prior registry systems have been digitized and new data security and client confidentiality features have been implemented in this new robust and efficient system.
All BCCAR services can now only be accessed via OBRS. To access OBRS services you must create an account in OBRS by visiting www.obrs.bccar.bz. You will require a valid Social Security ID and an email address. All existing business entities are required to reregister in OBRS to receive a unique 9-digit business Entity number, an E- Certificate and full access to BCCAR services. Payment for services must be done via OBRS.
OBRS Help Desk stations are available as of December 5, 2022, at the Belmopan & Belize City BCCAR offices, at BELTRAIDE, at the Belize City Hall, Belmopan City Hall and at the Corozal and San Pedro Town Hall. Business Registration in Belize is now Digital!
