The Quezon City government will issue electronic business permits once business owners’ application for renewal or new permits have been approved.

Business Permits and Licensing Department (BPLD) head, Margie Santos, said that these will be done through the city’s e-Services online portal.

For the meantime, Santos said that “business establishments can use the e-copy while their original or authenticated copy is yet to be released.”

Santos advised business owners to use the portal for more convenient transactions, adding that online applications can be used as an alternative while the in-person appointment system is being rebooted.

“By March 1, our system will allow the use of an email address only once at a time. And if the user of the said email address failed to show up on his/her date of appointment thrice, then that email address will be blocked,” she said.

The BPLD will reboot its appointment schedules for releasing of the business permit on February 28, cancelling all pre-booked appointment slots.
