THE Permits and Licensing Division in Bacolod City is now accepting application for Mayor’s/Business Permit for 2020.
Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the Permits and Licensing Division will accept the business permit application, but the assessment or the payment will start on January.
He said the Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) will start on January 2, 2020 at the Bacolod Government Center (BGC) Representatives from the City Health Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, Office of the Building Official, Environment and Natural Resources Office, and the 61 barangays will be invited to put up a table at the BGC for the BOSS.
The City Government is also accepting the Real Property Tax (RPT) advance payment for 2020 with 20 percent discount.
Licensing Officer Stela Rose Rayos earlier said the standard steps in processing the business permits have been reduced to only three from the previous five.
She said they can release a copy of the business permit in a day as long as the clearances and payment are already finished.
“For those who have 2019 business permit can go directly to their respective barangays for clearances and no need to secure an application form our office. Only the new business permit application will secure a form,” she added. (MAP)
