Having assisted with the development and drafting of the Public Accountants Law, Solomon Harris is well placed to provide guidance on the interpretation and application of these rules and regulations. We continue to work closely with Cayman Islands Society for Professional Accountants (CISPA) and can provide expert guidance on all your queries and applications, including advice on setting up your accounting practice in the Cayman Islands.
Information and Communications Technology
These regulations cover the licensing of telecommunications, broadcasting, and all forms of radio with the Internet, Communications and Technology Authority (ICTA). We have advised on obtaining Cayman Islands website domain names as well as securing radio licenses for both commercial and private maritime vessels. A Cayman Islands domain name (.ky) becomes especially useful for geographical targeting and other marketing applications.
