CEBU, Philippines —  The Mandaue City government has announced that business owners can already start renewing their business and real property taxes starting January 3 next year.

City Treasurer Regal Oliva said they are urging business owners to also comply with other required clearances, aside from the local business and real property taxes.

The sanitary permit, environmental permit and fire permit are among the documents needed in the renewal, as well as other nationally-mandated clearances including the Social Security System (SSS).

Oliva has announced it early so that business owners will have ample time to prepare the necessary documents before renewing their permits.

Oliva added the renewal of their permits will be done at the City Sports and Cultural Complex.  They would cater to this until January 20.

“So we are asking all the taxpayers to process at the earliest time to prevent inconvenience on their part," Oliva said.

They would implement a “no lunch break” policy during the whole duration of the processing time in order to cater to more business owners or representatives.

Oliva added that they will also be open on weekends to effectively maximize the processing time.

Parking spaces are now available, according to Oliva.

"At least this time, we already have parking area. Before, mao gyud na ang concern saunang panahon kung ngano di mo-istar ang mga tax payers sa complex kay walay parking area. Right now, we have ample space for parking area," Oliva added.

If they fail to comply with their permits and clearances in both local and national, the business owners can face a fine of up to P20,000.

Oliva explained that this would encourage businesses owners to be diligent in settling down their taxes and in renewing their permits.

Earlier this year, at least 13,000 business owners have renewed their permits and were able to process it on time.  — GAN (FREEMAN)
