How to renew your Mayor’s Business Permit? Here’s a guide to help you do just that. Make sure to renew your Barangay Clearance first before you do this one.
The Mayor’s Business Permit is just one of the legal requirements every business should have. This is to ensure that a business complies with the standards set by the city or municipality while safeguarding the interest of the public in dealing with these establishments.
Local Government Units are now trying to have a sense of synergy with other government offices by having some regulatory verifications built into their processes. For example, you will see below that certain requirements are BIR related. So if you have messed things up with BIR previously, you will not have an easy renewal.
Likewise, if you have painstakingly complied with all requirements from government agencies in the previous year, it’s only just a matter of presenting old documents to get new ones.
Requirements for Mayor’s Business Permit
1. Application Form
Available from the City Hall. This should be notarized.
2. Authorization Letter To Process Permit From The Owner
No specific format. Just write a letter telling Mr. Owner/President/Country Head that he authorizes Mr. X to process 2014 permit renewal.
3. Barangay Clearance 2014
You can get this within a day from the Barangay Hall.
4. Home Owner’s Clearance For 2014
A requirement if your business is inside a subdivision where Home Owner’s Associations exist.
5. Income Tax Return (ITR) And Audited Financial Statements
Since you don’t have these yet for the previous year, you will submit the ones from 2 years ago. Photocopy should be in 2 sets and bring also the originals.
6. Monthly Or Quarterly VAT
This is from previous year. If you have completed the quarterly payments then submit the quarterly, otherwise submit the monthly.
7. Declaration Of Gross Sales/Receipts
Figures from previous year. There’s no additional form for this because it is a section included in the application form.
8. Breakdown Of Gross Sales As Per Branch
Applicable only if you have branches and you have consolidated FS/ITR.
9. Community Tax Certificate or CEDULA
Don’t pay or get this separately. It’s included in the assessment process.
10. Previous year’s Environmental Permit
11. Previous year’s Fire Safety Permit
12. Previous year’s Sanitary Permit
The first step really is going to the City or Municipal Hall and getting the Application Form. Once your there, you will also be given the list of requirements and they maybe different from the list shown above.
Once you have gathered all your requirements, you can submit them all for assessment. If you passed the assessment, you will be given a list of fees together with the total amount. Make sure you get the correct payee name if you intend to pay via manager’s check.
