Details

EU sanctions will continue to apply in the UK until 11pm on 31 December 2020. This page will be updated if legislation or guidance changes during the transition period

In 1999 the United Nations required all member states to freeze the assets, prevent the entry into or the transit through their territories, and prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale and transfer of arms and military equipment with regard to any individual or entity associated with Al-Qaida, Usama bin Laden and/or the Taliban as designated by the relevant Sanctions Committee.

In 2011 the Security Council split the sanctions regime into two groups – an Al-Qaida regime and a country-specific Afghanistan regime.

EU regulations

Council Regulation (EU) No 753/2011 reflected the UNSCR 1988 (2011) split of previous UN Al-Qaida and Taliban sanctions regime into an Al-Qaida regime and a country-specific Afghanistan regime.

Description

The Afghan Central Business Registry is a service which allows a single place to register a business in Afghanistan. All companies, groups and individuals are required to register at the ACBR, where they receive confirmation of their registration, become published in the ACBR Gazette and receive the Tax Identification Number.

“The new Central Registry is a one stop shop to register your business. It brings together all of the functions previously done by the commercial courts, the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance.” [1]

“ACBR exists to provide services to businesses in Afghanistan intending to register their names and protect their intellectual property rights.” [2]

“All corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships doing Trade are required to register with ACBR, which facilitates the registration process, including assistance for completing the application form, paying fees, publishing key business information in the Official Gazette and reporting specification of businesses to the Revenue Department of MoF. Registration is required only one time unless a business makes major changes (i.e., change in ownership, executive management, or location or if the initial capital increases or decreases).

Businesses are referred to ACBR from either the Trader License office located in the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, from AISA, or from any other license departments after they acquire a business license.” [3]

Find and use identifiers

This returns access to four identifiers (Reference, Registration, TIN Number, License).

The Registration Number should be used.
