         i)    Purchase of immovable property;
         ii)   Employment contract;
         iii)  Financial disputes;
         iv)  Transactions involving business-to-business (B2B);
          v)  International transactions involving overseas companies; or
         vi)  Any transaction or activity that is already under the scope of other regulations or regulatory agencies in Brunei.
