The Iloilo City Business Permits and Licensing Division (BPLD) will start issuing Feb. 1 the notices to businesses that failed to have their permits renewed.
BPLD head Norman Tabud said the first notice will give business owners 10 days to comply with their permits.
“If they still fail to comply, we will issue the second notice wherein they will be asked to explain in writing their reason for non-renewal. For the last notice, they will be summoned by the City Legal Office for a conference wherein we will hear their side before we decide to issue or not to issue a closure order,” Tabud said.
As of Jan. 30, BPLD recorded 11,362 businesses that were renewed. There were 15,558 businesses that registered last year.
“So far, some 70 to 75 percent of businesses were renewed and this is the trend every year. However, we are still waiting for the remaining businessmen to have their permits renewed,” Tabud said.
“I encourage all businessmen to renew permits the soonest possible time because aside from violating the Revenue Code for operating without business permit, they will be made to pay the surcharge as well,” he added. (Merianne Grace Ereñeta/Iloilo City PIO)
