Many business owners have trooped to Tagum City Hall during the first day, January 3, of the business permit processing, the local government said.
Mayor Allan Rellon, along with Acting City Treasurer Annie Beltran, released the first business plate for the year to Elma Bonio, a sari-sari store owner in Visayan Village.
Those who have been processing their business permits have been undergoing three easy steps of the Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) at the new City Hall of Tagum, the city government said.
The first 2,000 business owners who processed their permits received umbrella freebies.
Free coffee, candies and bananas are also being given to the business permit applicants.
The deadline for the BOSS is on January 20.
