DAVAO CITY, Philippines — The Davao City’s Business Permit and Licensing Division or Business Bureau announced that it will put up a one-stop shop for the processing of the renewal of business permits starting Jan. 2 next year.

In a City Information Office dispatch,  Atty. Marissa Torentera, officer-in-charge of the Business Bureau, said the one-stop shop will provide assistance for faster transaction.

Torentera said, the renewal of permits is completed within just a day. But the processing of the permits is expected to last until March with the renewal of around 38,000 permits.

She reminded applicants that documentary requirements for renewal are Barangay Clearance and Income Tax Returns.

“Additional documentary requirements as set by the Revenue Code of Davao are previous Mayor’s Permit, previous receipts of payments, notarized List of Employees, Community Tax Certificate, Fire Safety Inspection Certificate, Special Power of Attorney (SPA) for Single Proprietorship,  Board/Partnership Resolution, Secretary’s Certificate for other types of organizations,” she said.

She said representatives from different regulatory offices involved in the processing of the renewal of the business permits will man the one-stop shop.

Business owners may proceed to the ground floor of the Sangguniang Panlungsod Building and at the Kadayawan Hall of NCCC Mall in Matina.

The one-stop shop schedule starts January 2 with extended office hours on selected dates (January 3-6, January 9-13, January 16-19) and ends January 20 from 8 am to 12 midnight at the SP building. The last day of renewal at the NCCC Mall will close at 10 pm. (
