The Anti-Red Tape Authority is urging all local government units to fully implement the business one-stop shop or BOSS or they face formal investigation for non-compliance.
With BOSS, business registrations and license renewal can be done in just one step and completed in less than a day.
ARTA director general Jeremiah Belgica said all LGUs are reminded to have the BOSS in place for this year’s registration of businesses and renewal of licenses.
Belgica said, “ARTA shall be conducting a series of on the spot surprise inspections starting first working week of January, especially (in NCR) and other highly urbanized cities.”
During the inspection, ARTA will audit the requirements of the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act and other existing policies of the agency.
He added LGUs have to put in place their electronic BOSS, the electronic business permitting and licensing system developed by the DICT for free, by June 17.
