DTI Pangasinan enforces 50% reduction in business name registration fee
By Venus Hortaleza-Sarmiento
Dagupan City (11 February) -- The Department of Trade and Industry in the province now offers 50% discount on payment for business name registration until the first half of this year.
Trade and Industry Specialist Marjorie Loresco said the fee which used to be P300 is reduced to P165 effective January 19.
In an interview at the 'Pantongtongan Tayo' radio program sponsored by the Philippine Information Agency over DZMQ Radyo ng Bayan- Dagupan, Loresco bared that the discount is a form of incentive to the business owners. The Business Division, she said, averages more than 30 applications everyday.
Loresco asked the public to bear with her office since they are currently updating their systems. An offline in their systems result in the re-scheduling of the release of the processed papers.
"Ang nangyayari kasi, kaya sinasabi ng mga iba na pabalik-balik sila ay pumupunta sila sa opisina kahit hindi pa nila schedule. May binibigay kasi kaming stub kung kelan sila babalik at pag meron na talaga, tinetext pa namin sila," Loresco explained.
She further explained that once all their systems are installed, business owners can register through the web.
DTI will also send them the processed papers through Internet. Everything will soon be a click away, Loresco said
DTI is also currently undertaking a mobile business name registration in far- flung areas. She commended the municipality of Agno for cooperating with them.
"Ang mga staff ng DTI, pumupunta dun sa Agno at kukunin yung mga application forms ng mga magpaparegister. Pagkatapos nun, ibabalik din namin sa kanila. Parang tulong na rin yun sa kanila para hindi na sila magbyahe ng malayo at magpamasahe ng mahal", Loresco said. (PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
