Tips in Getting a Barangay Business Permit in the Philippines:

After your clearance has been issued, make sure you check all information on the certificate and do not leave the Barangay Hall unless every word and detail on the certificate is accurate. Some info like your CTC number and Business Name must always be correct.

It is important to mention that an Official Receipt is attached on your Barangay Business Clearance certificate. Some Municipal’s Offices would always require the attached receipt.

It will always help your business to keep photocopies of every original document or certificate so that you won’t miss having another copy in case you lost one. We always need such documents when we process another transaction.

You can also bring your old certificate when renewing a new one every year or whenever they expire.

Barangay Business Permit Validity and Expiration:

The certificate is valid within the year of issuance or until a new Mayor’s Permit is needed. Barangay Business Permit is a prerequisite in doing a business prior to securing a Mayor’s Permit or Business License which is renewed every January of each year.

    • Hi, yes you need to register your business. You must go first sa DTI, then at have your Mayor’s Permit at your Municipal’s Office then register at BIR. Once you have the DTI, it is required you do the rest of the steps to avoid penalty. If you’re not earning too much, you can pay Percentage tax of 3% of Gross sales sa BIR monthly. I will be making a detailed post about this here soon. See ya around!
