FAQ

Is a Business Permit the same as a Mayor's Permit?

Yes, the two refer to the same thing. This permit is required for a business to operate in the city/municipality where it's located.

Are all applications done online only? Can I still do manual application?

Manual applications are still accepted at DTI offices or Negosyo Centers. Just bring one valid government-issued ID and fill out the necessary forms, which you can also get in the office.

Are foreigners allowed to become incorporators or board members?

Yes, provided that all requirements for incorporators are complied with and that the business activity of the corporation is identified as not fully reserved for Filipino ownership, as indicated in the Articles of Incorporation.

Do I need to be the one to facilitate my employees' Pag-IBIG loan application?

You're not required to facilitate your employees' loan application, although some companies offer this service. However, you need to provide some of the requirements that Pag-IBIG will need as part of your employees' loan application such as proof of employment or pay slip.
