I need help submitting and processing my documents for Business Registration. Can you please help me?
We can definitely help you out if you are based in Metro Manila. Unfortunately, we can't service provincial areas for our Business Registration service yet. If your business address is outside Metro Manila, we can refer you to our partner offering a “virtual address" that you could use as your business address.
If your business is within metro manila, please be sure that you have either a Lease Contract or the Copy of the Title of this address.
I don’t have Occupational/Professional Tax Receipt in the list of requirements until now. Is this really required or only if applicable?
Some Revenue District Offices require it, and some don't. Here are some information about some city's requirements:
- OTR is no longer required in Makati Cities of Makati and Pasig.
- Paranaque requires personal appearance for OTR acquisition.
- For registrants in Quezon City, upon receiving your OTR, your business or profession must be registered within a week. Otherwise, you may incur penalties.
So to answer the question, you may submit your documents without it. In the event though that the BIR – Revenue District Office will require it, we will get back to you and we will need you to send it to us to continue processing your registration. The Occupational/Professional Tax Receipt can be requested from your municipal hall.
Take Note: Secure OTR/PTR at least a week or less before sending the docs to TAXUMO.
For each of the form, please fill out the following fields:
• Address (including barangay)
• Contact Number
• Mother's Name
• Father's Name
• Email address
• Date of Birth
• Part II: 4E Change in registered address
If your business address is outside metro manila, we can refer you to our partner offering “virtual addresses" that business owners could use for their business. Unfortunately, we can't service provincial areas for EasyReg yet.
If your business is within metro manila, write your business or residential address. Please be sure that you have either a Lease Contract or the Copy of the Title of this address.

I’m from outside Metro Manila. I noticed that I have to pay virtual address. Can I not avail that? Why do I need a virtual address?
You can opt not to avail that but we won’t be able to process your registration since we (physically) do not have a team in your area to process it for you. Having a virtual address in Manila will allow us to be able to help you. But, with this, you can still refer to our website to guide you on how to register as a professional, freelancer or Sole Proprietor.
Here is an article created by our COO in her blog:
