ABOUT THE SERVICE

ALL ENTERPRISES are required to secure a Business License and Mayor's Permit, and pay business taxes before the start of commercial operations. The License must be renewed from January 1 to 20, every year. Penalties are imposed after this period.

Business taxes for new enterprises are based on capitalization. Those for succeeding years are computed as a percentage of gross receipts/sales. Payments may be made annually, semi-annually or quarterly. Taxes are due on the first 20 days of each quarter.

It takes a minimum of 2 days to process new applications. This already includes the requisite inspection and clearances from various offices and government agencies.

Renewal of licenses may take 30 minutes or 2 hours depending on the results of verification made by Local Revenue Collection Officer.
