Fees

Fees

Pursuant to Section 203, Subsection (4) of the P.D. 1096 which authorized the Secretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways to prescribe and fix the amount of fees and other charges that the Building Official may collect in connection with the performance of its regulatory functions, the attached Schedule of Building Permit Fees and other charges is hereby promulgated to form part of the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of P.D. 1096, otherwise known as the National Building Code of the Philippines.

  1. Bases of assessment
    1. Character of occupancy or use of building/structure
    2. Cost of construction
    3. Floor area
    4. Height

  2. Regardless of the type of construction, the cost of construction of any building/structure for the purpose of assessing the corresponding fees shall be based on the following table:
  3. Table II.G.1. On Fixed Cost Of Construction Per Sq. Meter

    Location Group
    All Cities and Municipalities

    A, B, C, D, E, G, H, I F J
    P10,000 P8,000 P6,000

  4. Construction/addition/renovation/alteration of buildings/structures under Group/s and Sub-Divisions shall be assessed as follows:
    1. Division A-1
    2. Area in square meters Fee per square meter
      i Original complete construction up to 20.00 sq.meters P2.00
      ii Additional/renovation/alteration up to 20.00 sq. meters
      regardless of floor area of original construction
      P2.40
      iii Above 20.00 sq. meters to 50.00 sq. meters P3.40

      Sample Computation for Building Fee for a 75.00 sq. meters floor area:
      Floor area = 75.00 sq. meters
      Therefore area bracket is 3.a.iv.
      Fee = P 4.80/sq. meter
      Building Fee = 75.00 x 4.80 = P 360.00

    3. Division A-2
