The Bureau of Internal Revenue has further eased the registration process for businesses by removing the mayor’s permit in the list of documentary requirements they need to submit.
BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay issued Revenue Memorandum Circular 57-2020, which streamlined the process and revised the checklist of documentary requirements for the registration of businesses.
According to the circular, the mayor’s permit was removed as a mandatory requirement for the registration of new businesses, in line with the BIR Citizen’s Charter.
The circular added, “The bureau shall not process deficient or incomplete applications or requests, and shall only process an application if it is complete.”
The BIR has been continuously streamlining its processes and improve ease of doing business in the country. Earlier, the Anti-Red Tape Authority met with BIR officials to discuss initiatives to improve its service delivery.
