I'm starting a business (sole proprietorship). From what I gather, the process is:
1. Register the business name with DTI
2. Obtain barangay clerance/permit
3. Obtain city permits (mayor's, sanitary, BFP)
4. Apply for certificate of registration at the BIR
5. Renovate business site
However on #2, the barangay official told to get my the site renovated first (step #5) because they need to inspect it. Now, with this policy, it would take a while before I can open my business (renovating the site would take at least 3 weeks). My question is: is this actual policy?
If it is, then it's not entrepreneur-friendly. On my part, I would have to wait idly for the site to finish before I can work on getting my papers in order.
