The DTI Capiz Provincial Office accommodated around 148 applicants secure their business names within two days as it participated in the Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) program of the Local Government Unit of Tapaz, Capiz last January 19 and 27, 2017.

The applicants were able to experience a fast and efficient processing of their BN upon submission of the complete requirements.  During the on-site/ on-line registration, DTI staff processed and released the BN certificates within 15 minutes.

The success of the activity can be greatly attributed to the support and leadership of Tapaz Mayor Roberto O. Palomar, who insisted that only those with approved BNs can secure their business permits.

The BOSS is a program that aims to streamline the Business Permits Licensing System (BPLS) in the local government units. This is an effective way of delivering government service to the public because it reduces bureaucratic red tape and the cost in doing business.

More so, it provides a more convenient, fast and easy system of renewing or registering business permits. This program has resulted to a higher turnout in the number of business registration which ultimately increased the tax collection and business fees that can be used to finance basic services.  The same activity was also conducted in the municipalities of Sigma, Mambusao and Sapian in time for the registration/renewal of business permits.

DTI-Capiz Provincial Director Ermelinda P. Pollentes said that LGUs in the Province of Capiz are BPLS compliant. She said that this system is mandated under the Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, Series of 2010 dated 06 August 2010 signed by the DTI, Department of Interior and Local Government, Bureau of Fire Protection and members of the Sangguniang Panglungsodand Sangguniang Bayan.
