Business permit renewals made simpler

by Julie Fianza/Baguio City PIO

BAGUIO CITY, Jan. 7 (PIA) -- Mayor Mauricio Domogan last week issued Administrative Order 002, series of 2012, enforcing a simpler method for the processing of business permit renewals at city hall.

“There is an urgent appeal by taxpayers to accelerate the pace of processing business permits,” the AO states.

Thus, a streaming of procedure of processing business permit renewal is enforced; where only the sanitary permit, barangay clearance, clearance from the City Treasurer’s Office (CTO) and certification of payment of taxes is required. The business permit from the CTO may then be secured.

Other requirements for the completion of validity of a business permit; clearances from the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), Philhealth and the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) should be secured after the issuance of the permit.

Closure of the business establishment may be pursued if said documents are not acquired, the AO further states.

The said procedure was sought as it was learned that taxpayers are discouraged from processing their business permits as they experience difficulties acquiring clearances from other government agencies.

Earlier also, the mayor issued another administrative order prohibiting city employees from interceding or working out business permits unless they are directly involved in the processing of said permit in their respective offices. “To avoid favoritism and ensure fairness in the application for new, or renewal of business permits,” “no employees shall intercede and/or hand carry in behalf of any applicant/permittee for issuance of new, or renewal of, business.”

Administrative sanctions would be meted out for violators; reprimand for the first offense, suspension for one to 30 days, and dismissal for the third offense. Business permit processing and payment of real property taxes without penalty have started on the first day of working day of 2012 and shall go on until March. Percentage discounts shall be granted to early taxpayers. (PIA CAR/JGF-Baguio City
