Philippine Business Registry (PBR)
The PBR is a government-initiated project that integrates the services of all agencies involved in business registration, such as the DTI, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), Pag-IBIG Fund, PhilHealth, local government units (LGUs), and other permit/license-issuing agencies to facilitate business registration. 

It allows applicants to get any one or any combination or all of the following business registration at a single location within 30 minutes:
Agency Information/Data
DTI* Business Name Certificate Number
BIR* Taxpayer Identification Number
SSS Employer's Registration Number
PhilHealth Employer's Registration Number
Pag-IBIG Employer's ID Number
*Not applicable if registering through the SEC. The Company Name and the BIR TIN shall be provided to the partnership or corporation upon registration with the SEC.

PBR is a teller-assisted service.  For sole proprietorship, applicants can go to a nearest DTI Office and look for the PBR tellers to avail of such service. For SEC-registered companies, authorized representatives who already got a copy of their company’s SEC Registration Certificate can proceed to the PBR Kiosk at the SEC Head Office, Mandaluyong City.
How to apply:

Walk-in application at the DTI Office 
  1. The applicant fills out the PBR application form and submits to DTI teller for encoding.
  2. Applicant’s Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is required to proceed since PBR number (PBN) is based on the TIN. If there’s an existing TIN, PBR will validate against records. If there’s no TIN yet, PBR will generate for the client
  3. The applicant pays for the BN registration at the Cashier, and presents the receipt to the teller.
  4. The teller submits application to SSS, Philhealth, and Pag-IBIG, then prints and hands over Business Name Certificate, copy of BN Application form, and Official receipt.
  5. The teller provides the employer’s registration numbers (ERNs) from SSS, Philhealth, and Pag-IBIG through a filled out application form.  An e-mail notification indicating the ERNs issued by these agencies can also be retrieved by an applicant in his/ her email account.
