What is a Mobile Business Registration?

 

To operate a business in Liberia, you are required to obtain a business registration certificate from the Liberia Business Registry (LBR). The LBR is located on Nelson Street, Monrovia. Initial efforts were placed on streamlining the business registration processes at the LBR. Significant improvements have been made on the business registration procedures with registration taking place within two working days. According to the World Bank 2015 Doing Business Indicator, Liberia stands at 30 in the ranking of 189 economies on the ease of starting a business.

 

The Mobile Business Registration (MBR) is a process that allows businesses such as retailers, distributors, contractors, etc. to run their business across counties and districts using the Liberia Business Registry-approved business registration certificate, Liberia Revenue Authority tax clearance and NASSCORP social security number. Its intention is to help expand business registration opportunities to other parts of the country; to streamline and simplify the business registration process; and to reduce the cost for business owners and make it easier to do business out of Monrovia.

 

What are the benefits of a Mobile Business Registration?

 

The government is committed to working with county officials to support the success of the business community by reducing barriers to doing business.
