Before you begin (Restoration of a business name)

Before you begin

Welcome to the Business Name Renewal service.

The system will guide you to confirm that the information of this Business Name is correct and up-to-date. Only the mobile phone number and email address of the business name are editable within this service. Should you find that any other information is not up to date, you will be required to exit the business name renewal service; make the corrections on the business name (through maintenance services) and then return to the business name renewal service. 

Every Business Name must file a renewal with CIPA every three years on its original month of registration. Filing a renewal confirms that the Business Name is still in existence and that the details held on the Register are up to date. The renewal must be filed (including payment) by the due date. If the renewal is not filed by the due date, the business name will be automatically removed from the Register. Business Names that are removed from the Register for non-compliance to renewals will have to pay a restoration fee of P1000 as well as all outstanding renewal fee(s) in order to be restored to the register.
