Doing business in Taal is so easy, says Mayor Pong Mercado

Investors are attracted to a place if it offers much potential and if it is easier to set up their businesses there.

And Taal, Batangas is definitely one town where all these businesses would not have a hard time getting their papers approved, Mayor Pong Mercado said.

In a Facebook post, Mercado said Taal is one of only three municipalities in the country that successfully rolled out the electronic Business Permits and Licensing System under the Department of Information and Communications Technology.

The issuance of business permits is fast, accurate, and environment friendly; in fact, people could apply for permits from the comfort of their own homes, Mercado said.

But that’s not all. Soon, business taxes could also be paid online, through smartphones or accredited banks.

With these opportunities for easy transactions, don’t be surprised if investors come flocking to town!

“We are a first! Taal is one of the only three municipalities in the entire country to successfully implement the electronic Business Permits and Licensing System under the DICT Program.

Despite being a 3rd class municipality, Taal has enabled itself to provide an online, fast, environment-friendly and accurate system of business permit issuance. Through the system, business applicants can apply for permits from their own home, with less paper works and at a shorter time.

And we are not stopping here! Soon, business applicants can also pay their business taxes from their own homes, through their smartphones or at any accredited banks, through the ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY SYSTEM, in partnership with private and public financial institutions.

Thank you, DICT! We are confident that with this project’s success, more will come from our partnership with you to deliver better services to all Taaleños!,” Mercado posted.
