Hi-tech! Calapan City touts digital business registration renewal system


The City of Calapan has flexed its multi-awarded automated system for business registration renewal.

Proprietors in Calapan City need not to wait that long or even fill out tons of documents to renew their registration and permits, thanks to the Business Renewal Information System (BRIS).

“The taxpayers swipe their business ID cards at the BRIS kiosk located at the lobby of City Hall, input the needed data themselves and their assessment and payment due will automatically appear on the screen,” the office of Mayor Arnan Panaligan said.

It reduces the need for filling up forms and other paper requirements, lessens human contact and promotes ease of doing business in Calapan City,” it added.

The said BRIS has been getting accolades for digital governance.

“BRIS was awarded as national first prize winner in the Digital Governance Awards by the Department of Information and Communications Technology,” Panaligan’s office said.

The said innovation has been pioneered by the Panaligan administration.
