The Parañaque City government under the administration of Mayor Florencio M. Bernabe, Jr. has extended the deadline for the renewal of business permits for the Year 2013.
Following City Ordinance No. 68, Series of 2013, the payment of local business taxes, fees and charges without penalties and surcharges is extended up to January 31, 2013 provided that the application for renewal of business permit has been filed and processed at the Business Permits and Licensing Office on or before January 25, 2013 and the taxes, fees or charges due thereon have been assessed by the City Treasurer’s Office.
The extension is intended to give establishments’ added time to prepare the required documents, likewise to accommodate the influx of investors and growing business population of the city.
“Apart from the deadline extension, the Parañaque City Government has a one-stop shop set-up and a fully-computerized system that guarantee fidelity, accuracy and speed of transactions. Added to that are our modern service lounges which have been designed for the comfort of the taxpayers.”, Mayor Jun Bernabe said.
For their added convenience, taxpayers will also be given parking priority at the city hall grounds.
Meanwhile, establishments are reminded that the City Treasury will only accept cash and manager’s or cashier’s checks written in favor of the City Treasurer of Parañaque as payment. Company administrators and representatives are also advised NOT to deal with fixers but instead report them to the Office of the City Mayor.
