Manila extends business permit payment deadline

For 2022, the city has already remitted all allowances to senior citizens, according to Lacuna

The deadline for the payment of business permits in the City of Manila has been extended to 3 February 2023 from its original 20 January end, Mayor Honey Lacuna said yesterday.

Lacuna announced the extension during the Monday morning flag ceremony at the Kartilla ng Katipunan Park in Arroceros, Manila. The new deadline was set through an ordinance passed by the city council and signed by Lacuna.

She then urged businesses in the city not to wait for the deadline to expire anew before paying their due. “Take advantage of this extension,” the mayor said, noting the continuing flow of funds into public coffers.

The mayor directed the Senior Citizens’ Affairs Administration to update the list of senior citizens in the city to resolve complaints of missing names of beneficiaries.

For 2022, the city has already remitted all allowances to senior citizens, according to Lacuna.

“All districts have already been given their allowances for seniors for last year. We just need to update the list to be able to pay those who have had problems,” she said.

“Those who disappeared from the list, just wait a little. Rest assured we will fix this so you can get your allowances,” the mayor added.

The next handout of the senior allowances will be in April 2023 after the previous handing out last December.
