Business owners flock to the Manila City government’s one-stop shop for the renewal of business permits and licenses at the ground floor of the SM City Manila.

About 120 personnel armed with 75 new computers, 20 printers and new servers have been deployed at the 1,000-square meter activity area of the mall, Bureau of Permits chief Levi Facundo said.

There are 20 counters for license applications, 10 counters for cash payment, 15 counters for fire permit applications and five counters for releasing.

The one-stop shop is open at 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Mondays to Saturdays, from January 2 to January 31, 2020.

“We can process 2000 transactions in a single business day, which is stored at our system in real time,” Facundo said.

“We have terminals to cater business owners beginning today, Mondays to Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at our One Stop Shop for business permit renewal,” he added.
