Just a week after its successful launch, led by President Benigno S. Aquino III last January 27, the Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) online Philippine Business Registry system has been receiving positive feedbacks, Malacañang reported on Sunday.
Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said the people, who have benefited from this new service offered by the DTI, cited in particular the speed by which they were able to register their business name online and the fact that physical appearance was no longer needed just to complete the process.
“Gumugulong na po ito. Mayroon nang mga nakapag-register ng kanilang business name online at mabilis daw ang proseso at masaya tayo na ganito ang initial feedback at napaka-importante nga nito dahil hindi na kailangang pumunta nang pisikal sa Department of Trade and Industry para makapag-register ng business name,” Valte told radio dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.
Given this development, Valte encouraged those who plan to start small businesses as their source of livelihood in the country to make use of DTI’s Philippine Business Registry system which was established primarily to streamline business registrations in the country and eliminate red tape.
“Yung mga naglalayong magkaroon ng maliit na negosyo at makapagtayo naman ng kanilang kabuhayan, mas madali na ang pagsisimula ng kanilang negosyo dahil sa online Philippine Business Registry system,” she said.
Launched only two Fridays ago, the Philippine Business Registry system serves as a one-stop shop for entrepreneurs who want to transact or register their businesses by linking several agencies so that applicants can register businesses even without their presence.
Interlinked government agencies under the Philippine Business Registry include the DTI, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG), Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth), Social Security System (SSS) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
