SORSOGON CITY, Jan 4 (PIA) — “BOSS” or Business Operators Service System is again operational in the city hall of Sorsogon City for 20 days, enough time for business operators to apply/renew their business permits and licenses.
According to Sorsogon City Mayor Leovic R. Deoneda, this procedure had been ongoing for several years to facilitate the renewal and application for new permits and licenses.
Dioneda assured that all departments involved in the issuance of permits and licenses, together with national agencies whose mandate is the same, had been provided space and personnel in the main hallway so that people transacting business will have easy access to their services.
The local government had also informed business owners to bring the needed/necessary papers so that they would not be going back and forth.
BOSS will be opened five days a week, including two Saturdays; the system started January 2 to end on the midnight of Jan. 22.
A 25 percent interest will be added to the usual fee for late filers. Also, a one-time paying regulation will be observed – that upon filing of permit and license, payment of required dues shall also be paid.
“Our taxes will help propel our economy and establish an improved service delivery of the national and local government programs and projects,” Deoneda concluded. (MAL/IAG, PIA Sorsogon)
