BIR removes mayor’s permit as requirement in business registration

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has taken out the mayor’s permit as one of the requirements in business registration.

Commissioner Cesar Dulay pointed out that the BIR aims to expedite the process of establishing businesses in the Philippines.

It is continuously making reforms to ease the burden of entrepreneurs in submitting required documents.

One of the other aspects of business registration in the Philippines is the establishment of a physical office. Aside from our legal, accounting, and business services, we also work with our sister company, Keystone Property, as our realty partner, in setting-up our clients’ offices. Together, we can short list requirements, source out office spaces, equipment and office furniture.

As with all services in the BGC Company, the first step is often a consultation with our business consultants and account managers to understand the needs of each client. When we have identified each company’s specific needs, we then provide realistic options based on the timeline and budget. The management then decides on the course to take, and a project manager is put in charge to coordinate all the services together, providing clients with seamless turnkey office solutions.

Whether a large international company or a small local business, BGC’s company registration and office setup services can save your company’s time and money, so you can direct your focus on the business.
