SANTA ROSA, LAGUNAThe Negosyo Center City of Santa Rosa participates in Business One-Stop-Shop (BOSS) that seeks to speed up the processing of permits of individuals or companies operating businesses within the city.

Doing the ease of establishing a business was made possible through the merging of various business development services in one place. Santa Rosa City Multi-Purpose Complex Hall serves as the venue of the one-stop-shop that will run until 27 February 2021.

With the presence of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) – Laguna Negosyo Center Business Counsellors and Santa Rosa City Government Staff, services such as business name registration, advisories, and other business and consumer issues were readily attended to, to help stimulate entrepreneurship development as micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) contribute substantially in driving the Philippine economy.

BOSS is one of the features of the Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Delivery Act of 2018 (EDB Law). It refers to a single location, website, or convergence point for national government agencies, local government units, and the private sector to promote ease of doing business and to shorten the timeline for transactions with the government.♦
