by Easter Anne D. Doza

BACOLOD CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA6) -- A significant number of applicants for the renewal and new applications for business permits went to the Bacolod City Permits and Licensing Office.

Bacolod City is likewise implementing a Revised Revenue Code this year after 18 years of having been revised under tax ordinance 001-93 which specifies that tax adjustments every five years, the release from PIO added.

The implementation of the Revised Revenue Code is also in accordance with Republic Act 7160, Series of 1993 and for the past 18 years clients of the city enjoyed the leniency and generosity of the city government.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia who advocates for a One-Stop-Shop service for the public in renewal and application of business permits, assured the Licensing Division that new computer units will be purchased in order to provide a speedy and streamlined operations for the public.
