Traders warned on permit deadline-A A +A
Friday, January 4, 2013
CANDABA -- The local government unit (LGU) here warned business owners that it would impose closure order to commercial establishments that fail to secure business permits and pay other necessary local taxes on or before January 20.
Leny Manalo, chief of staff of the Office of the Mayor, asked the members of the local finance in a meeting held Thursday to identify delinquent taxpayers who failed to settle obligations on the said date.
This came as stall owners occupying more than two units in the public market reportedly failed to cooperate with the Municipal Government’s drive to improve its income generating mechanism.
“Kung yung maliliit na nagtitinda ay nagbabayad ng permit bakit sila na malalaki pa ang pwesto sa palengke ay ayaw magbayad?” Manalo said.
The municipality has also intensified the implementation of Business One Stop Shop (Boss) program, which aimed at expediting the procedures on application of business permits and licenses.
Under the program, all offices with direct participation in the processing of the application for renewal of business permits will be housed in one place for the smooth flow of documents and for transparent and speedy transactions.
