Taguig welcomes business owners to BOSS 2020; encourages them to pay early

 

Hassle-free transactions even on weekends

 

In a bid to encourage business owners to process their business registrations and renewals early, Taguig City opened the year 2020 with its express service for entrepreneurs, the renowned Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS).

BOSS, which will happen until Jan. 20, is a single destination where entrepreneurs can process their business registrations and renew business licenses with the help of accommodating Taguig City Hall personnel.

Through this initiative, the processes are streamlined to ensure the efficient and convenient processing of documents for businesses. Business owners, thus, don’t need to start the year with the stress of going to different places to get different permits. Taguig City has gathered in this yearly event all the departments concerned in giving business licenses and permits.

The annual event is held simultaneously at the Taguig City Hall Auditorium and at the City Hall Satellite Office on the 9th floor of SM Aura.

BOSS will be open everyday until Jan. 20 including the following  weekends:

Jan. 4-5

Jan. 11-12

Jan. 18-19

On weekdays, the offices are open from 8 am until all business owners in line are accommodated. On weekends, the offices will be open from 8 am until 5 pm.

Entrepreneurs may enjoy onsite a free massage, food and refreshments, all while waiting for their documents to be processed. Tokens like umbrellas and personalized tumblers will also be awarded to the first 100 taxpayers.

Business owners are encouraged to go to BOSS early to avoid the lines and enjoy hassle-free transactions.

Furthermore, all taxpayers are advised to pay their taxes early to evade incurring penalties: a surcharge of 25 percent for failure to file or pay business tax and an additional 2 percent penalty per month due to delay.

“Taxes are the lifeblood of the city’s programs and social services,” said Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano.

“The collected business tax translates into social services. The more the city can collect, the more social services we can render to Taguigeños,” the mayor added. These services include the door-to-door delivery of medicines, scholarship assistance, among others.

Taguig has received a Blue Certification Award from the Office of the Ombudsman for its streamlined frontline services, and an excellent rating from the Civil Service Commission for its compliance with Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Anti-Red Tape Act.

The City of Taguig is currently home to top corporations, embassies and government offices. New hotels, educational institutions and shopping malls have also sprung in recent years within the fast-growing business districts of Bonifacio Global City and ARCA South. ###

Mabilis, komportable, at maayos, na transaksyon maging Sabado at Linggo

Taguig binuksan ang BOSS 2020; mga negosyante hinikayat na magbayad nang maaga

Upang mahikayat ang mga negosyante na magpa-proseso ng kanilang business registrations at renewal ng maaga, binuksan na simula nitong January 2 ng Taguig city government ang Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) para sa taong 2020, at meron pang express service para sa mga entrepreneur.

Ang BOSS, na magaganap hanggang January 20, ay isang lugar kung saan ang mga entrepreneur ay pwedeng magpa-proseso ng kanilang business registrations at mag-renew ng kanilang business licenses sa tulong ng mga magagalang na Taguig city hall officers.

Sa pamamagitan ng inisyatibong ito, ang proseso ay ginawang mas madali at sistematiko upang masiguro ang maayos at mas magaang daloy ng mga papeles sa mga negosyo.

Dahil rin dito, ang mga negosyante ay iwas stress sa pagbukas ng bagong taon dahil iisang lugar na lamang ang pupuntahan para sa kanilang business permit.

Taun-taon ay ginagawa ito ng Taguig city government kung saan nag-iipon-ipon ang mga departamento na may kinalaman sa negosyo at lisensya upang bigyan ng dekalidad na serbisyo ang mga negosyante.

Ito ay ginagawa sa Taguig City Hall Auditorium at sa City Hall Satellite Office sa 9th floor ng SM Aura.

Ang BOSS ay bukas araw araw hanggang Jan. 20 pati na ang sa mga weekend. Ito ay ang mga sumusunod:

Jan. 4-5

Jan. 11-12

Jan. 18-19

Tuwing Lunes hanggang Biyernes, ang mga opisina sa BOSS ay bukas mula 8 a.m. at magsasara hanggang ang lahat ng mga nakapilang mga negosyante ay napagsilbihan na. Tuwing Sabado at Linggo naman, bukas ito mula 8 a.m. hanggang 5 p.m.

Maging ang mga entrepreneurs ay meron pang mga libreng massage, food and refreshments, habang nag-aantay na ma-proseso ang kanilang papeles. Meron pang mga token kagaya ng mga umbrella at personalized tumblers na ipamimigay sa mauunang 100 taxpayers.

Hinikayat ang mga business owner na magtungo sa BOSS ng mas maaga upang maiwasan ang paghaba ng pila at maranasan ang hassle-free transactions.

Inabisuhan din ang lahat ng taxpayers na magbayad ng kanilang taxes ng maaga upang maiwasan ang penalties kagaya ng 25 percent surcharge sa hindi pag-file o pag-bayad ng business tax at karagdagang 2 percent penalty kada buwan na delay.

“Ang tax ay ang pumupondo sa mga programa at social services ng syudad na ibinabalik sa mga tao,” ayon kay Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano.

“Ang makokolektang business tax ay katumbas ng serbisyong ibinibigay sa tao. Mas mataas na tax collection, ibig sabihin ay mas maraming social services na kayang ibigay ng LGU sa mga Taguigeños,” dagdag pa ni Mayor Lino.

Ilan lamang sa mga serbisyong ito ay door-to-door delivery ng mga gamot, scholarship assistance, education projects at marami pa.

Ang Taguig ay nakatanggap ng Blue Certification Award mula sa Office of the Ombudsman dahil sa maayos na frontline services, at excellent rating mula sa Civil Service Commission dahil sa pagtupad nito sa Republic Act No. 11032, kilala bilang Anti-Red Tape Act.

Ang City of Taguig ay kasalukuyang lugar na napili ng mga top corporations, embassies at government offices. Mga bagong hotels, educational institutions at shopping malls ay negdesisyong magtayo din sa Taguig nitong mga nakaraang taon dahil sa pag-unlad ng Bonifacio Global City at ARCA South. ###
