nice biz po. nagparegister na po ba kayo? sa DTI, cityhall, at sa BIR? if registered naman na, all tax will be based po lage sa Sales Invoice / OR for your VAT or percentage Tax. then your net income for your Income Tax.

thanks

On line businesses in the Philippines is relatively starting to pick-up. Others prefer not to register their business with the BIR at first. OK lang yan if you sell in cash and meet your customer when you deliver your goods and they don't ask for an official receipt. But if you are accepting credit cards as payment, then it is mandatory for you to register your business because credit card companies withholds 1% from the sales generated by you using their credit cards.

For those who have online businesses, meron ba sa inyo na kumuha ng business permit? I'm about to launch my online biz kasi and I think in time (not too far in the future) I'll need to issue official receipts. I'm very confused since I won't have a physical store, online lang talaga, and I'll be home-based. These are the requirements kasi for mayor's permit, and I'm wondering which ones might apply if online shop:

Requirements for the Issuance of Mayor's Permits

For Business Permits

A. New Business

1.  Barangay Clearance -- most likely, right?
2. Locational Clearance -- even if there's no physical store?
3. Fire Safety Inspection Certificate -- this is N/A, too, right?
4. Electrical Inspection Certificate -- this is N/A, too, right?
5. Sanitary Permit (for food related establishments) - N/A
6. Pollution Clearance (for manufacturers) - N/A
7. Cultural Tourism Affairs Office Clearance (for tourist-oriented establishments) - N/A
8. TCT or Lease of Contract of Site --- ?

So, kung susumahin, parang Barangay Clearance lang ang kailangan ko, tama po ba?

Thanks in advance!

Then your home will be considered as your office. Hindi rin naman po nag-ooperate itself ang online business mo. It is still you who would be posting the pics or ads or whatever. In short, mauupo ka rin po sa harap ng laptop and you would occupy at least 2-5 sqms of your home.  :)

So for the requirements, yes, you'll be needing the baranggay clearance. Just indicate there that your working area is just a small table and chair (5 sqm)....

If you will get the Mayor's Permit here in Q.C.:
...2) Locational Clearance-Yes...again, indicate the smallest area possible
...3) Fire Safety Inspection-Yes...same as above reasons
...4) Electrical Inspection-Yes...requirement din ito for the fire safety
...5) Sanitary Permit-No Need
...6) Pollution Clearance-Not Applicable
...7) Cultural Tourism Affairs Office Clearance (for tourist-oriented establishments)-Not Applicable
...8) Lease of Contract-If you are renting, yes this is applicable. If not, your land title

If you will get the Mayor's Permit in Manila: #2-7 is not applicable in securing the permit.

sorry ah. just want to plug another question.

Paano naman if you will tell the BIR or Cityhall that you are renting computer from an internet cafe. Wala kang fix location. Like today dito ka sa Manila, bukas nasa Q.C. ka naman, then next day nasa Novaliches ka na. Actually, this might happen. Sa rami ba naman ng mga tao ngayon eh, hindi lahat meron pc sa house. Nag aahente lang sya, pero under his own company naman. Paano kaya yun?

As a general rule, once you put up a business you are required to register your business.  If your direction is expansion of your business then register your business.  It is better to have compliance than later on you will regret because when you decide to expand your business and capitalization would require you loan to any private or government institution, such registration and compliance are one of the major requirement.

Even opening bank accounts, tax identification number (TIN) are now required.

It is part of the business cycle...

We have an online store http://www.mygamecore.com ... Since our retail shop is located in Bulacan, mas ok talaga magkaroon ng online shop para at least yun mga taga Metro Manila makita din nila yun products. It is a registered business so kahit  na may mag order sa amin online, we always give official receipts to the consumers.

So if you only have an online store,  i advise i register mo pa din since sabi nga ng iba business pa din yan. Kapag business you definitely need to pay tax dues and other fees  ;)

Kawawa naman yun bansa natin kung wala mag babayad ng tax di ba?  ;D

Last year, my friend and I spent precious time reading the  E-COMMERCE ACT (yes, there is already a law on e-commerce--It's in the DTI website in PDF format, I think) which was passed as a law during Erap's term. One of it's key goals is CONSUMER PROTECTION.

An online business owner based in the Philippines must among other things:
-issue an official receipt
-indicate in the website: complete business address (yes as someone earlier mentioned, your residence is the logical answer, where your office is, where you do your biz), your BIR REGISTRATION NUMBER, terms covering the business purchase (the fineprint stuff you see in invoices/official recepits), have an SSL (a security feature for the order form)

There's a group of e-commerce experts who can answer your questions more accurately.
You can visit site owner and note book author Janette Toral's website:

Good luck!

just like any other normal business, the operations or activities of your company need not be always in your principal office address.  What is sufficient is that you state which is your principal office for purposes of registration and validation din ng business mo.  So meaning, you may from time to time operate or undertake business activities elsewhere (like when you log in at internet cafes or when your mobile but still doing business on line) but your principal place of business remains to be at your home, kasi nga on line store ka, so residence mo gagamitin mo.

register it at your home, para in case padalhan ka nila ng mga letters, siguradong matatanggap mo at ito rin yung logical place kung saan nakatago yung mga records mo at kung bibisitahin ka nila, makikita agad nila yung mga records mo like O.R's, books of accounts, etc.
