Business Bureau eyes 39,000 renewals in 2019
January 03, 2019 - Thursday 3:01 PM by Lovely Carillo
DAVAO CITY -- The Business Bureau is ready for the expected huge turnout of people as they open up their counters at the ground floor of the Sangguniang Panlungsod for the yearly renewal of business permits beginning January 3, Thursday.
“Our office issued a total of 39,514 business permits last year so we expect more or less the same number of businesses that will be renewed this 2019,” Business Bureau Chief lawyer Marissa Torentera told Mirror in an interview.
Torentera said the Business Bureau issued 39,095 business permits from January to November, and 419 business permits as of December 28, 2018.
All businesses that want to operate in the city are required to apply for and secure a business permit.
She said they are ready to serve the people who will be applying for new business permits and who will renew their business permits not just at their office at the SP Building, but also at a remote center located at the Almendras Gym.
“We are urging business owners to renew their business permits early to avoid the long lines later on,” she said. In the previous years, business owners only apply for renewal when the cut-off or deadline nears resulting to long queues.
To avoid long lines and to make the application for the renewal of business permits more convenient to the people, the city government has made it a point to designate a satellite center that offer the same services as the Business Bureau Center at the SP Building.
During weekdays, both the Business Bureau at the SP Building and the remote site at the Almendras Gym will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.. The sites will be open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m..
