French term or phrase:Certificat de Patente
Title of document issued by the Direction générale des impôts
This is something like Business & Occupation Tax Certificate, I believe, but wanted to double check. Again, this document is from Haiti, and it is to be translated into U.S. English. So I know what this means, I just am wondering the best way to say this.
I do not think that "Patente" is "Patent". In this context, I believe that "Patente" has to do with the license a business obtains in order to do business, and may have to do with the associated tax. Thanks.
