Slow to pay NIS
THERE HAS BEEN lukewarm response by businesses to the publication of their names on a list of defaulters to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS).
NIS director Ian Carrington told the DAILY?NATION yesterday that some employers had come in this week to settle their debt but not as many as the NIS would have expected.
He did not give details as to how many of the more than 900 defaulters actually paid up, but confirmed that some people were also served with court documents this week.
However, he reminded that under the NIS?Act, directors and managers of companies were liable for any debt to the scheme, which could go after their personal property.
