In this article, I want to share the requirements and procedures on how to get Barangay Business Permit Clearance. Barangay Business Clearance is one of the permits or documents required when registering a new business in the Philippines. This form is also needed when renewing your expired Mayor’s Permit or Business License, changing a new business location and changing a new commercial name.
You may always know these information when you have a business in the Philippines because you will need to renew your Mayor’s Permit or Business License every year or at the beginning of a new year unless you will be closing your company. Before you renew your business license, you must first need to visit your Barangay Hall or Office of the Barangay Captain in your area where your business is under jurisdiction.

Barangay Business Permit Clearance Procedures
Prepare the necessary documents listed above and the fee to pay your Business Clearance or Permit. I paid P500 when I got mine this year 2017. Go to your Barangay Hall or Office of the Barangay Captain to process your clearance. It will only take a while and it will be finished after few minutes depending on the transactions being made in your barangay when you got there.
After your clearance is done, make sure you check all information on the certificate and do not leave unless every information and detail is accurate. Some info like your CTC number and Business Name must be accurate.
Also make sure an official Receipt is attached on your Barangay Business Clearance certificate. Some Municipal’s Offices always find the attached receipt.
In case you are wondering what a Barangay Business Clearance looks like, I’m gonna share my certificate below. Every certificate may look different as every Barangay may have their own letter head and certificate design and color.
It will be helpful for your business to always 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 thing. Besides, you can bring your old certificate when renewing a new one every year or whenever they expire.
