The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is inviting online payment facilitators to take part in the government’s Central Business Portal (CBP), which serves as the central system to receive applications and capture application data in relation to business-related transactions, as defined under Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018, including the licenses, permits, clearances, or authorities issued by Local Government Units.

This call is open for all payment facilitators that are registered operators of payment systems with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, and accredited tax service providers of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

The establishment of the CBP service is pursuant to the DICT’s mandate to automate business-related transactions by providing a neutral and secure web-based platform which shall be accessible to the public. Through the CBP, Filipinos who intend to start their business shall now have access to a central platform, which shall process new corporate business registrations, and thereafter, process any necessary business permits, clearances, and any other business start-up requirement from government agencies, such as Securities and Exchange Commission, BIR, Social Security System, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and Pag-IBIG. To allow business applicants to pay fees online, the DICT intends to interconnect various online payment gateways to the CBP for the convenience of the public.

All interested payment facilitators are advised to submit a Letter of Intent along with a detailed proposal on how the payment platform of the facilitator will be integrated to the CBP, to the Office of the Director for Government Digital Transformation Bureau, DICT.
