He said that the business permit applicants must complete the documents required. No more deadline extension will be given, Treñas said.

Offices of the city treasurer, assessor and budget are currently computerized for easy access and monitoring of business permits and licenses.

The Department of Finance cited the city last year for its computerization program particularly in business permits and licensing services.

Treñas reiterated that the businessmen must avail of the services until January 20 only to avoid penalties and surcharges including congestion in the processing and payment of permits.

Meanwhile, the Permits and Licensing division and the CTO is open for new business permits processing throughout the year.
