Under the Profession Trade and Business Registration Act, Cap. 373, some professional services are required to register and pay a license fee to operate in Barbados. These professions include attorneys-at-law, medical doctors, accountants, actuaries, architects, engineers, and dentists. These professions have professional associations in which membership forms part of the licensing requirements.
