THE Inland Revenue office in Auki has been criticised for poor services by public transport owners.
It is claimed that the office opens late and closes early every day, causing much inconvenience to public, especially public transport owners.
A group of public transport owners complain to Island Sun Auki, “sometimes we came in the office to renew our licences but we found no one in the office but only stand behind lock doors.”
They appeal to the Inland Revenue head office in Honiara to address this seeming complacency by its personnel in the Auki office.
“We call upon the Inland Revenue office in Auki to do comply with its services and continue to provide its reliable services to its regular customers in Malaita province.”
Auki town, and the Malaita province as a whole, is second to Honiara in terms of vehicle imports as more roads are being built and fixed and more businesses established.
The business of public transport is seen as a booming industry in the province.
