ZAMBOANGA City Government offices involved in the processing of business permits have extended the working time from eight to 12 hours a day on regular working days.

The offices will also open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during Saturdays and Sundays starting January 2 until January 20.

The extension of working hours is in compliance with the order of Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, as businessmen are expected to flock to City Hall to renew their business permits.

The offices that are involved in the renewal of business permits are the City Treasurer's Office, City Permits and Licenses Division (CPLD), Tricycle Adjudication Board, the Computer Services Division, City Health Office, and City Planning and Development Office, among others.

CPLD chief Benjie Barredo said that assessment tables and foldable tents have been set up at the ground floor of City Hall to accommodate clients and to ensure convenience of those processing their permits.

Barredo said that under the law, January 20, 2014 is the deadline set for the payment of business taxes.

Barredo said that late payments will mean a surcharge of 25 percent and two percent additional penalty for every month of delay. (Bong Garcia)
