The Marikina City Government is giving all small Sari-Sari stores and Carinderias relief from Business tax and permit fees!
By virtue of Ordinance 63 Series of 2016 entitled “Ordinance providing for full Business Permit and Business Tax exemption for Sari-Sari Stores and Carinderia in Marikina City, owners of these establishments will not be required to pay for the said tax and fees in 2017.
However, if the Sari-Sari store or Carinderia is selling Cigarettes and/or liquors or has a startup capital of more than Php 10,000, then they are not covered by this ordinance. Meaning, they still have to pay for their business permit and tax.
