For your existing businesses, you can add it to your name with the Register an Existing Business. This way, using your online account, you will be able to manage your business easier. Then, fill up the form, and you are good to go!
Downloadable forms are present for more accessible applications when needing other paper works. Most of these forms are affidavits that are required for most businesses.
Step 4: Compute Business Permit Fees
After listing your business/es, you can click on the Compute Assessment option to calculate the total fees you will be paying for your businesses.
You have the option to pay for either the 1st yearly quarter up to the annual payment. A table of bills will then be displayed, showing the amount to be paid quarterly and the total amount to be paid.
Step 5: Pay For Your Business Permit Online
With the advancement of banking during the pandemic, two significant players in the online payment industry emerged, namely Gcash and Paymaya (now Maya). You can use both E-wallets to pay for your Business Permit Renewal or Business Permit Application in Antipolo. Using a credit card also exists, where both payment options have a service fee—a service fee of Php 10 for E-wallets and 1.75 percent of the transaction for the credit cards.
Paying for your business permits has been made easier in Antipolo City. However, online transactions are not always ideal, especially if you have a backlog of payments waiting. If you need to pay your fees in person at the city hall, you will have to book an appointment using this link. – WhatALife! / Vaughn
