Recently the City of Las Piñas issued another extension of the local deadline for the renewal of business permits which is now February 28, 2023, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. Previously, the deadline was set for January 31, 2023.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
The Las Piñas City government extended again the deadline for renewal of business permits and licenses from Feb. 1 until Feb. 28.
Mayor Imelda Aguilar is urging all business owners in the city to avail of the second deadline extension for renewal of business permits, licenses, taxes, and other commercial and industrial fees and charges without penalties and surcharge.
Aguilar said the city government set the first deadline extension for business permit renewal from Jan. 20 to 31 through a City Council resolution.
She said the city government made the move after the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) noted a high number of business permit registrations and applications.
The mayor said deadline extension until Feb. 28 will also help businesses who have just recovered from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Aguilar said the extension will also accelerate the city’s collection from business permit renewal and applications.
The mayor is also hoping delinquent businesses can now legalize their operation.
