Philippine Business Registry

Philippine Business Registry
The PBR is a government-initiated project that integrates the services of all agencies involved in business registration, such as the DTI, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), Pag-IBIG Fund, PhilHealth, Local Government Units (LGUs), and other permit/license-issuing agencies to facilitate business registration.The time for long queues and endless period of waiting for business name registration, hopefully, will soon be a thing of the past in the Philippines. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is planning to launch next week its online business registration portal, called Philippine Business Registry or PBR.

The Web-based system would first serve as a one-stop shop for transactions involving national government agencies, except those that involve most LGUs. All processes will be interlinked so that applicants need not physically go to each agency to register their businesses.

For LGUs whose business permit processing system is not yet interlinked with the PBR, applicants still need to get their business permits from the local government where they wish to operate

With fewer steps and easier and faster processing, the DTI said PBR will strengthen government efforts to give the people the quality of service they deserve. This would make the Philippines more attractive to investors and eventually improve its global competitiveness ranking.

The DTI is streamlining business permits registration this year, especially in areas that show potential for attracting more investments in tourism and agribusiness.

It allows applicants to get any one or any combination or all of the following business registration at a single location within 30 minutes:
Agency Information/Data
DTI* Business Name Certificate Number
BIR* Tax Identification Number
SSS Employer's Registration Number
PhilHealth Employer's Registration Number
Pag-IBIG Employer's ID Number
*Not applicable if registering through the SEC. The Company Name and the BIR TIN shall be provided to the partnership or corporation upon registration with the SEC.
