A number of commercial businesses who failed to participate in the 2015 Annual Solomon Islands Surveys of Employment and Business Activities could possibly face a $14,000.00 fine.
The Ministry of Finance and Treasury confirms in a statement.
The statement says these businesses failed to return their completed survey forms last month, the closing date for the survey.
The statement stresses these businesses face the possibility of a $14,000.00 fine for breaching the Statistics Amendment Act 2007.
Meanwhile, Government Statistician Mr. Douglas Kimi stresses, the survey would assist the National Statistics Office to identify important national economic indicators.
