Businessmen, entrepreneurs urged to renew business permits earlyby Nora CL Molde
BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) – Chief of Business Licensing and Permit Division Paul Cabrera called on businessmen and entrepreneurs to renew their licenses and permits early to avoid penalties.
The deadline for the renewal of business permits and licenses is until January 20 only, said Cabrera in an interview with local radio here. Beyond the said date, a 25 percent penalty will be imposed on applications.
Last Monday, more than 300 individuals have already applied their permits, and 50 of these applications were already issued mayor’s permit.
Cabrera also said that sari-sari (or convenience) store owners should get and/or renew their permits only from the city hall.
He further said that only the mayor can issue business permits and the barangays will only issue documents as one of the requirements in the securing the required permits from the city. (PIA-Caraga)
