All the companies in the Philippines are required to renew its business permits every year. Domestic Corporations and foreign owned companies such as Branch or Representative office are no exception.
2017 is no different and while this is not a new compliance, it is always important to emphasize that it is mandatory for all the companies operating in the Philippines in order to continue its normal business activities.
In fact, companies that fail to renew its business permits will be imposed penalties and eventually will have its permits to operate removed by the local government unit (LGU) where it operated. While the deadline for this year has not yet been announced, we expect that January 20 will remain as the key date.
Several local taxes to be paid, uncountable documents from your company, office space, and also your employees should be provided.
