THE deadline for renewal of business licences in the Selayang municipality has been extended to March 31.
Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) president Mohd Yazid Sairi (pic) said this was an extension of the original deadline set on Dec 31 last year.
Payments after March 31 will incur a 10% late processing fee.
“I hope all business licence holders will take note of this extension and settle their dues soon,” he said at MPS’ hybrid full board meeting yesterday.
The renewal and payment of business licences should be done online via the MyMPS portal at mymps.mps.gov.my
“The MyMPS portal has been upgraded not only for business licence transactions, but also for renewal and payment of stall rental as well as building and planning permit,” said Mohd Yazid.
“Between November and December 2021, MPS collected a total of RM7.9mil for business licence payment, RM9,000 for stall rental and RM67,472 for building and planning permit through the MyMPS portal.”
Similarly, he said ratepayers could check and pay their assessment bills via the MyMPS portal.
MPS issued its assessment bills on Dec 15, 2021 for the first term of 2022.
“As at Dec 31, 2021, MPS collected RM104.03mil in current assessment, or 95.44% of the estimated RM109mil collection for 2021,” said Mohd Yazid.
“As for assessment arrears, we managed to collect RM6.5mil or about 80% of the RM8.15mil in total arrears.
“In addition, MPS issued warrants to seal and seize moveable properties, with a RM100 charge on owners of commercial and industrial premises that owed arrears in assessment of RM200 and above.
“A total of 18,349 warrants were issued by Dec 31, 2021.”
He also announced that MPS would mark its 25th anniversary since its establishment, this year.
“We kicked off the silver jubilee anniversary celebration with a prayer recital ceremony on Jan 27 that was attended by Selangor Mentri Besar,” he said.
Mohd Yazid said the municipal council had planned a series of programmes throughout the year.
“The list of programmes will be announced after they are tabled and approved at the Community Development Committee meeting,” he said.
