CITY OF TACURONG—Business owners renew their permits for only an hour and thirty minutes with only two easy steps.

First, business owners submit all required documents to the LGU’s License Section. If requirements are complete, LGU personnel encode business data. The second step then requires business owners to proceed to the Treasury Office to submit and pay their Tax Assessment. The business owner then receives the business permit from the personnel of the Treasury Office.

If you think it couldn’t be easier than that, the Business One-Stop Shop is here!

The LGU Tacurong Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) is now ongoing to give business owners a more hassle-free process. From 5-20 January 2015, all national line agencies and LGU offices you need to go to and transact with to register or renew business permits are in one place.

If you have not complied your business renewal/registration requirements, you only need to go to the Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center (city gymnasium) to avail the services of LGU offices including Office of the City Mayor (License Inspection Services Section and Economic Enterprise Management and Slaughterhouse), City Engineering Office, City Planning and Development Coordinating Office, City Environment and Natural Resources Office, Office for City Health Services, City Treasury Office, and City Administrator’s Office.

Also in the same venue are personnel of various national line agencies such as the Bureau of Fire Protection, Philippine National Police, Social Security System, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Department of Trade and Industry, PAG-IBIG, and Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (Philhealth).

In the previous years, LGU Tacurong had three steps in business licensing. In 2012, Tacurong was ranked 8th among LGUs nationwide with the least number of steps—with its 3 steps—required for processing business renewals by the National Competitiveness Council.

According to City Administrator Eduardo Nicolo, the LGU reduced the steps into two in its efforts to make the city more business-friendly. (LGU-Tacurong City Information)
