ISKRAMBOL NI JUAN AT MARIA is finally a registered business with legal permits to operate from the city government. This whole process is new for me so it's only now that I realize just how hard it is to be on the GOOD/LEGAL side.
To concerned authorities, maybe you guys could cut down the number of to-do-steps. This way, the whole process would not be discouraging for businesses. Imagine...even veteran businesses are having trouble with your whole system. What more newbies?!

I asked help from my superMom so I'm still a bit clueless as to how it all happened.
But here's what I know...
1. To protect your business name, register it at the Department of Trade and Industry. You could do it online or at any branch of the department. You will be asked to provide at least three names in case your proposed business name have already been claimed. I paid around P500 for this.
2. To legally operate, you need to get permit from the city government where your branch is located.
3. If yours is a food business, you have to submit two 1x1 id pictures and the results of your urinalysis , fecalysis and xray. This is for your sanitary permit.
The rest...my mom took care of them. I'm sure there were several other tedious steps after but I think I got the first steps covered.
We paid around P6000 for a new business with a start up capital of P20,000.
"OUCH!", our pockets said.
...AND WE'RE NOW MORE THAN READY TO SERVE YOU!
