Guide to Doing Business in Quezon City - Guidelines for Applying for Locational Clearance

LOCATIONAL CLEARANCE fOR BUSINESS PERMIT PURPOSES:

For new businesses

Applicants for new businesses must apply for their Locational Clearance through the Business One Stop Shop (BOSS), ground floor, Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO), Center Quezon City Hall

It will be processed along with the application for New Business Registration. The applicant must bring the following documents for purposes of applying for the locational clearance for the first time for their business:

checkbox.fw  Contract of lease (if business location is leased)
Transfer certificate of title (if business location is owned by the applicant)
Or other arrangements for the use of the property, such as Memorandum of Agreement, formal consent of the owner for the applicant to use the property as business location
checkbox.fw  Location plan/ subdivision plan/ sketch showing exact position and area occupied by business being applied for
checkbox.fw  Photos of frontage and interiors of the business

The applicant must also bring his/her identification card. If the one filing the application is not the business owner, then he/ she must bring an authorization letter from the owner.

Additional document requirement: If the location is inside a subdivision or a predominantly residential area: signed certificate of “no objection from Homeowner’s Association or Neighbor’s Consent is required.

For existing businesses renewing their registration

Check the validity of your locational clearance: For uses that are “permissible”, meaning, they conform to the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance, the validity of the locational clearance is up to three (3) years. It must be renewed every three (3) years thereafter, as long as the business continues to operate. For uses that are “conditional”, meaning the clearance was granted subject to specific conditions, the validity of the locational clearance is twelve (12) months or one (1) year, because compliance to the conditions must be regularly checked. It must be renewed every year thereafter, as long as the business continues to operate.

Before the validity date of your locational clearance expires, have it renewed by going to the Zoning Administration Unit of the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO), 10th floor, Quezon City Hall High-rise Building. You may do this as early as three (3) months before the locational clearance expiry date.

Bring the original copy of the locational clearance and the business permit for this purpose. For easier processing, attach the locational plan/ subdivision plan/ sketch showing exact position and area occupied by the business being applied for.
