All enterprises are required to secure a Business License and Mayor's Permit, and pay business taxes before the start of commercial operations.

The license must be renewed from January 1 to 20, every year. Penalties are imposed after this period.

Business taxes for new enterprises are based on capitalization. Those for succeeding years are computed as a percentage of gross receipts/sales. Payments may be made annually, semi-annually or quarterly. Taxes are due on the first 20 days of each quarter.

It takes a maximum of 2 days to process new applications. This already includes the requisite inspections and clearances from various offices and government agencies.

Renewal of licenses may take 30 minutes or 2 hours depending on the results of verification made by a Local Revenue Collection Officer. Verification determines whether an applicant still has to secure clearances from various offices (building, zoning, fire and/or sanitary). Processing of licernses for these applicants will take approximately 2 hours. Otherwise, only 30 minutes are required to secure a license.
