The Solomon Island Visitors Bureau (SIVB) has issued a warning to all tourism operators throughout the country to settle their outstanding bed levy payments or action will be taken against them.
The warning came after many tourism operators have been slow or dishonest in paying up the bed levy fee to the bureau.
Yesterday the SIVB compliance office issued a final warning to remind operators to pay up for court action will be taken against them.
The bureau’s senior compliance officer (SCO) Joseph Iniga said SIVB will take tough action against operators who fail to comply.
“Anyone that failed to comply with the SIVB bed levy Act would be taken to court.
“Our lawyer had issued letters recently to some of the operators who fail to pay up their bed levy.
“SIVB thanked those who have responded positively and pay up their dues.”
