Las Piñas City government adjusts business permit renewal deadline to January 31, 2023

Recently in the City of Las Piñas, the City Government announced that the deadline for the renewal of business permits has been moved from January 20 to January 31, 2023, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. Their City Council approved a resolution which was subsequently signed by the Mayor.

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 announced on Saturday, Jan. 21, that the deadline for the renewal of business permits has been extended from Jan. 20 to Jan. 31.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar signed the resolution extending the period for payment of business permits, licenses, taxes, and other similar commercial fees and charges without surcharges and penalties.

The resolution was passed and approved by the City Council on Jan. 16.

Aguilar said they made the move since the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) has been receiving numerous business permit registration and renewal applications.

She said the resolution states that an extension of deadline for payment of business permits and licenses will not only encourage the settlement of fees and charges but also accelerate the collections. It likewise enables delinquent individuals and firms to legalize their business operations.

The resolution also says the extension will ultimately redound to the benefit of the city because the taxpayers will be able to comply with the mandatory obligation of providing revenues to the city government.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City, what is your reaction to this development? If you are running a business within the city, will the extension be helpful to you?

Las Piñas City Government signs deal with Perpetual Help Medical Center for Green Card program

Las Piñas City Government signs deal with Perpetual Help Medical Center for Green Card program

Las Piñas City hospitalization through the Green Card Program could now be availed at the Perpetual Help Medical Center of Las Piñas according Mayor Imelda T. Aguilar and Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery.

The Perpetual Help Medical Center-Las Piñas is the latest medical facility to accredit the Green Card Program of the City Government, in addition to Las Piñas Doctor’s Hospital, San Juan de Dios Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, and Las Piñas City Medical Center.

“We are happy to announce that we have another partner in providing hospitalization benefits to our Las Piñeros, the Perpetual Help Medical Center, as we continue to explore ways to deliver enhanced service to our kababayans,” Mayor Aguilar said.

Green Card holders among the city residents could avail of the free hospitalization services worth P30,000 per patient who would be confined at any of the accredited hospitals.

The Green Card is the hospitalization support program managed by the Mayor’s Office, City Health Office, and City Social Welfare and Development Office. It has now around 200,000 Green Card holders.

The number of household beneficiaries has been expanded and in nearly 20 years the program signed up with five accredited hospitals to cater to the medical needs of the Las Piñeros.
