SECURING A MAYOR’S PERMIT TO OPERATE A BUSINESS
Operating any business in the City of Legazpi requires a valid Mayor’s Permit from the City government of Legazpi through the Business Permit and Licensing Division – City Mayor’s Office, located at the Business Center, City Hall Compound, Legazpi City.

LEGAZPI CITY GOVERNMENT’S BUSINESS CENTER
The Business Center is located at the City hall compound in Rizal St., Old Albay. This is across the Sanggunian Panlungsod building and City Treasurer’s Office. The Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) layout is aligned with the city government’s 3-steps process. Steps 1 and 3 of a tax payer is in the Business Permits and Licensing Division (BPLD), while Step 2 is inside the City Treasurer’s Office (CTO’s) payment area..
- In the BPLD, tax payers queue following the chairs by lanes in Step 1.
- Once they proceed to Step 2, an automated queuing system is available which will determine the window for payment.
- In Step 3, there is no queuing system since tax payers are served on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Every January, the BOSS will have a section allotted for the OBO/CEO and Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) to accept new applications for an Occupancy Permit and Fire Safety Inspection Certificate (FSIC) for business. This area is located at the right side, inside the BPLD.
The BFP personnel in this area also serves as the Customer Relations Officer of the agency.
The BOSS is open from Monday to Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (no lunch break). However, every January, operations of the BOSS is extended until 7:00 PM during weekdays or from Mondays to Fridays. It is also open on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
