BOSS ups business registrants, revenue collection in Ifugao town

TINOC, Ifugao, Jan.30 (PIA)- - The Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) that aims to streamline the business permits and licensing system (BPLS) in local government units  is proving  to be  an effective way of delivering government service while  increasing  revenue  collections in  this remote town.

 

Tinoc OIC-Fire Marshal Jose Dulnuan Jr.  bared in a radio  interview that  the BOSS  centers  here  which  opened from January  2 to 24 this year  catered  to more than 200 business establishments securing  clearances, permits and licenses. This also resulted to higher revenue and business fees collection compared to the whole year of 2019.

Dulnuan said they established the BOSS centers in four clustered barangays of the town for wider coverage.  It was originally planned to operate from January 2-20 but it was extended for another week due to the clamor of many business applicants.

With the BOSS, all government agencies involved in the renewal and registration of all kinds of business permits and licenses and for the processing for the issuance of building permits and certificate of occupancy are gathered in one venue to provide their services, saving the clients time and effort from going to one office to another.

Dulnuan said that the BOSS made the applicants experience a fast and efficient processing of their business requirements like the issuance of a Fire Safety Inspection clearance which is a post registration requirement in obtaining occupancy permits.

It provided more convenient and faster system of renewing or registering business permits and in the town of Tinoc, the BOSS program resulted to a higher turnout in the number of business registration and increased the collection of taxes and business fees that can be used to finance basic services of the government.

Moreover, it created awareness among the people of the town to avail of the different government services in one place hence reducing the stress, time and cost of doing business in the area, he said.

The establishment of BOSS centers in the municipality is covered by Joint Memorandum Circular signed by the Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Interior and Local Government, Bureau of Fire Protection, Provincial Government of Ifugao and the Municipality of Tinoc.
