2.2 It seems that obtaining a permit for a sole proprietor has been more challenging. Please see attached document which I obtained from DTI this morning. Regrettably permit offices are only in outlying areas, since most vendors are living there. According to a news article, municipal ward councillors can assist to obtain a permit. This may be the easiest starting point if jewellers know your ward councillors. If you are unsuccessful in obtain a permit this way, please, in the meantime, use the form which you as an employer will be issuing to staff as per point 2.3 below.
