DICT to launch eBPLS for automated Business & Licensing Permits
The Department of Communication and Technology is set to launch the eBPLS software this July 18, 2017. This will coincide with the eBPLS Summit to be held that day and spearheaded by DICT Sec. Salalima.
The eBPLS (Electronic Business Permit and Licensing System) aims to streamline the process of getting licenses and business permits in cities and municipalities.
The DICT is steadfast to revolutionize local governance through ICT. As part of the ongoing effort to streamline regulatory processes in the country, the Department takes the lead in computerizing the business permitting and licensing system of cities and municipalities, through the eBPLS software, which will be launched during the summit.
The eBPLS software will allow the taxpayers to file their application for new and renewal of business permits online and enable the local government units (LGUs) to process the applications electronically.
An eBPLS system has been in place in selected regions or municipalities by it’s mostly a back-end system used by government offices. The eBPLS software will close the loop and give access to businesses and taxpayers direct access to the system for easier transactions.
