TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The city government launched the Electronic Business Permit and Licensing System to level up its business registration program.
Pierre Galicia of the City Business Permit and Licensing Office said the project is part of the city government’s program on paperless transaction.
This is also in line with the national government’s thrust to facilitate transactions in government agencies.     
With the system, registration of business is made accessible even to business owners who may be out of the city or investors from outside the city who have businesses here.
The system also allows outright downloading of copies of business permit and licenses, which helps shorten the process.
Payment of registration fees can also be made through accredited banks and remittance centers.
Set to be fully operational this month, the system is seen to contribute in the city’s revenue collection performance.
Some 4,248 business operators in the city are expected to renew their business permits and licenses this year. – Larry T. Lopez
