The application will not proceed if any blanks are detected.
Once submitted, the application will proceed electronically to the Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO).
Here is what happens to your online application:
1. The BPLO will do an initial evaluation of the application, comparing the information provided with the information of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in its Unified Registration Record, a data shared by SEC with the QC-LGU. If there is no discrepancy, it determines the Philippine Standard Industry Classification (PSIC) of your business.
Within the hour, the BPLO will send electronically, the application form and the TCT or lease contract attachments to the Zoning Unit of the City Planning and Development Office.
2. The Zoning Unit evaluates if the intended business site is compliant with the city's zoning ordinance.
• If compliant: The Zoning Unit approves the application for Locational Clearance, and transmits this decision to the BPLO on the same day.
• If not compliant: The Zoning Unit disapproves the application, and returns the application back to the sender via email, with a report and explanation on its decision. This application is deemed terminated and does not proceed to BPLO. The applicant will have to apply again, with a new and compliant choice of business site.
3. Locational clearance-approved applications are electronically sent to the BPLO, and the BPLO does the following
• assesses the fees payable, including the payment for the Locational Clearance (one-time assessment), and prepares the tax bill, and sends, by email, a pdf copy of this assessment to the applicant;
• validates the Fire Safety Inspection Certificate (FSIC), with the BFP-QC personnel co-located in the BPLO one-stop shop.
• prepares a checklist of documents whose original copies must be presented to the BPLO, as a final condition for the release of the Mayor's Permit.
• prepares as well a checklist of other permits and clearances required by government, for specific types of business. These other permits and clearances must be obtained within 15 to 30 days from release of the Mayor's Permit, and presented to the BPLO for recording; otherwise, the Mayor's Permit will be automatically revoked.
You, as the applicant, will receive the message that your Online Application for Mayor Permit to do business in Quezon City has been APPROVED. It will be released, once you do the following:
• Print out the assessment emailed to you by the BPLO
• Present this at the cashier of the City Treasurer's Office, Quezon City Hall; get your official Tax Bill and your Official Receipt.

In addition, the BPLO will provide you with a checklist of other government permits and clearances you must comply with for your particular business activity, within 30 days. Present original documents of the relevant additional permits to the BPLO within 30 days, otherwise your Mayor's Permit to do business will be automatically revoked.
