The Philippine Business Registry
The Philippines Business Registry (PBR) is a Government-initiated project that facilitates business registration-related transactions by integrating all agencies involved in business registration, such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), Local Government Units (LGUs) and other permit/license-issuing agencies. It provides a faster process for business registration, thus strengthening the government’s effort of providing quality service to the people and realizing its commitment to curb corruption and reduce red tape in the bureaucracy.
In particular, it is a web-based system that serves as a one-stop shop for entrepreneurs who need to transact with several agencies to be able to start operating a business. Each of the agencies’ computerized registration systems will be interlinked so that applicants need not physically go to each agency to register their businesses.
At present, sole proprietorships can already validate existing/register their Business Names (BNs) from the DTI, get or validate their existing Tax Identification Numbers (TINs) from the BIR and employer registration numbers from the Social Security System (SSS), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) and Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund) through the PBR system. Sole proprietors may opt to apply from computer cafés or their homes/office using their PCs with internet connection or go to computer cafés or DTI Offices with designated PBR Kiosks or tellers and register through them. Application through a teller will involve submission of a filled up application form which may be downloaded from the website or completed and printed by the public online for submission to the PBR kiosks or tellers.
