REVENUE MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 57-2020 issued on June 9, 2020 prescribes the updated policy and revised checklist of documentary requirements on business registration and other types of applications.
The requirements for registering a new business with the BIR have been streamlined by removing the Mayor’s Permit as one of the mandatory requirements when the BIR Citizen’s Charter 2019 was published in the BIR Website.
The BIR shall not process applications or requests with deficient or incomplete documentary requirements and shall process only those applications or requests with complete documentary requirements (pursuant to Rule VII, Section 2(b) of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 11032 or Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Delivery Act of 2018).
