The CARE unit welcomes new partners


The COM and the CCISM wanted to extend the CARE unit to other bodies in order to even better support companies in difficulty. Thus Thursday morning, Initiative Saint Martin Active, Adie and the public finance department joined the device. A one-year agreement was signed by the partners.

The CARE unit was set up at the end of 2019 to help businesses get regularized; CARE stands for Business Regulatory Support Unit. It proved its usefulness during the health crisis when Saint-Martin companies could not obtain state aid because they were not in order in the fiscal, social or other field. They were supported by the COM and the CCISM. “More than 400 requests have been processed,” says CCI President Angèle Dormoy.

Today the authorities want to go further and encourage those who exercise an informal activity to regularize themselves, in other words to create their business. “Our teams will go out into the field for two months to identify people we can help, to make them aware of the value of regularizing themselves. Then the files will be examined by the cell ”, explains Sabrina Rivere, director of Initiative Saint Martin Active.

“There are five courses within the unit depending on the need: a course intended for companies with fiscal irregularity, a course intended for companies with social irregularity, a course for companies encountering regulatory difficulties, two courses intended for players in the informal economy. Each of the  partners will intervene at different stages of these journeys according to their skills or the services offered, ”adds President Daniel Gibbs.

If a person wishes to request support from the unit, they can contact one of the signatories of the agreement, who will guide them through all the steps to follow. (
