As a move to urge Filipinos and foreign businessmen to engage in doing business in the country, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act into law in May 2018. This new law sets a deadline for the government to quickly act on business applications, about three to five days for simple processes and seven to 10 days for complex ones. Even before the effectivity of this new law, the government had already been doing its part to make business registration for prospective entrepreneurs easier by making some application processes online.

Even before the effectivity of this new law, the government had already been doing its part to make business registration for prospective entrepreneurs easier by making some application processes online.      Ads      Sponsored Links      The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)’s business name registration for single proprietors is among the first processes to become digitized.  The Philippine Business Registry (PBR), DTI’s business name registration system, has been made more accessible for single business owners since 2012.    A prospective entrepreneur is not anymore required to visit DTI offices to secure a Certificate of Business Registration. With the PBR website, the certificate can even be printed in the comfort of their own home.     Here are the steps you have to take to secure that certificate.    Check the availability of a business name  Before starting the registration process, it helps to check if the business name you have in mind is still available to use. At the PBR, one can easily type in the prospective business name and it will check the database if there are enterprises already using that trade name.    A word of advice: don’t just try to check the business name you are aiming for once. Try to modify your search to save time later on. For example, if you are thinking of putting up a business called “Juan dela Cruz Services,” modify your search and break down every part of the business name from just “Juan dela” to “Cruz Services.” Some business names just differ in spacing or spelling.    The DTI also reminds applicants to ensure that the business name isn’t similar to an existing trade name or trademark, such as “Anne Dok’s Lechon,” “Jolibee” and "Starbax Café.” On the other hand, names that are too generic, such as “The Coffee Shop” for your café, aren’t permissible, too.    Business owners also can’t use the abbreviation of a government agency or international organization.    Business name registration  Once you’ve verified that your prospective business name is still available for use, you can proceed to the business name application.    Once in the page, you will be required to choose the geographic scope of the enterprise: national, regional, city or town, and barangay. If you are keen on operating a business that will reach clients in different parts of the country—for example, an online shop—then it’s best to register your scope as nationwide. The fees will vary depending on the scope, ranging from Php200 to Php2,000.    Afterward, the business owner’s personal info will be required. You will only have to submit some basic details such as tax identification number, residence address and mobile number.    By this time, you’re done with the most tedious part of the online registration process. You may now choose whether to pay cash through either a local DTI office or Go Negosyo Center, or via an online payments system.    The PBR only accepts two kinds of online payments: Bancnet and GCash. If you have an online account with any bank, then paying through Bancnet is advisable. Otherwise, a GCash account may be needed to complete the transaction.    You also have the option whether to pick up your business certificate from a local DTI office or have it printed yourself.    Once the payment is complete, a message will be sent to your e-mail on how you will retrieve the certificate based on the method you selected. Most likely, the whole process will only require 15 to 30 minutes of your time.

Food, shelter, and clothing are the basic necessities of human lives.  We can choose our lifestyle whatever we want like living in a simple yet safe home and wearing modest low-end clothing to save but the rising cost of food is a serious matter and we need to do something about it.  Imagine that you are earning just enough to pay your bills, mortgages and other household expenses and your company seldom give you a raise in your salary. Even the families of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) are finding it difficult to budget the remittances they receive due to inflation. Everything has increased its prices and you need to catch up.      Ads     Sponsored Links  Here are some practical tips to save money on food items.      Make A Shopping List And Stick to It  Planning your meals for the week and carefully selecting specific ingredients to buy can save a lot out of your food budget. With the list on hand, purchase only the items  you need to buy and avoid impulse buys.      Eat Before You Shop  When you are hungry and you walk into a building full of food, it is more likely that you are going to grab unnecessary and expensive items that appeal more to your palate than your pocket. It is highly advised that you eat first and shop.     Avoid Fastfoods   Ready-made meals are easy to buy but come with a cost. Instead of eating in fast food or restaurant, buy the ingredients and do it at home preparing the meal yourself. It could save you a lot and still keep the leftovers for the next meal.    Do Not bring Your Kids While Shopping  Every extra minute that you spend in the store increases the chances of you buying more and this includes toys and snacks meant to keep the kids behave while you try to focus on your hunt for a good bargain. Do not bring your kids with you while shopping to save time and money.      Buy in Bulk  Buying in bigger packaging can save you a lot. You can usually find great deals in buying a larger packaging. However, pay attention to your spending habits and consider your storage capacity.        Use Store Reward Cards And Coupons  Coupons provide an easy way to save money. There is no harm in clipping them and using them in purchasing foods, helping you save on your food shopping cost.       Buy locally produced foods  Locally grown or produced food is cheaper because you don't pay for long transportation costs. You also help local farmers and food producers meet their daily needs as well.   Compare Store Prices; Grab the cheapest  Have an assessment of which stores offers lower prices for particular food items and buy it from them. Some grocery stores have special prices for a specific item and they are not often applicable to other stores. Be aware of the price tags and grab it where it cost the lowest.   Look Down at the lower shelf  Most expensive items are usually displayed at eye-level. To find less expensive items, look down.     Avoid the Checkout Temptations  Beware of the displays placed at the end of each aisle. They often feature premium brands and they are placed there for a purpose.    Shop for Sales  Pay attention to sales on necessity items and stock up on non-perishables and freezer goods. Be mindful of the expiration date because most of the sale items are often near expiration dates.  Ads    Shop Infrequently  Reducing the number of trips that you make to the store each week or month reduces the chances of unnecessary purchases and minimizes the amount of transportation cost spent getting there.    Pay in Cash  Avoid using your credit card in purchasing food. If you don't pay off the card in full each month, you pay interest on the purchase. To avoid paying the extra cost, use cash when you shop.    Check Your Bill  Electronic scanners make the shopping experience faster and more convenient, however, scanners aren't foolproof. Take a look at the receipt to make sure your coupons and discounts were accurate.    In addition to this, try planting edible plants and vegetables and use it to save on your next food purchase. Having an organic vegetable garden in your yard lets you eat your favorite veggise for free.
Our country is now experiencing high inflation rate like its neighboring countries. The only thing is that, while other countries in the region like India, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, etc., seems to recuperate with high inflation rates, we are just started to hit the peak.   The high inflation rate is so evident that even the families of overseas Filipino workers  (OFW) who used to catch up with their expenses using the remittances sent by the OFWs to pay their bills, mortgages etc., are now complaining of budget shortage due to high prices of food items, transportation, and basic commodities.   Recruitment and migration expert Emmanuel Geslani even advised the OFWs to send at least 20% more remittances in order for their families to cope up as the prices soar high.  Could it really help? How do we beat the high prices brought about by the inflation?    Ads     Sponsored Links    As we are all affected by high prices, there is a need for a concerted effort by all sectors to work together to beat inflation. This is not the challenge for the government alone. The private sector, media, and consumers alike must also pitch in. Expectations can only be calmed by a perspective view that this condition is temporary.      Keep a record of your spendings  Tracking your expenses by keeping a record and listing down your purchases. It will allow you to determine your average spendings. You can compare them and find out which will be your basis of a monthly allowance. Check out which month you spent the least and make it a reference for your preceding monthly budget plan.    Have a contingency budget of at least 10% every payday  Set aside at least 10%  from your monthly take-home pay for emergency purposes. Financial emergencies are inevitable and it is important that we are ready.    Watch your lifestyle  We often hear that we should not spend more than what we earn. Buying things that you need must be a priority over the things that you want.    Exercise frugality  Saving for the future benefit none other than yourself. The money you save today could save your life in the future. Everyone will come to their retirement but some of them will not retire well. Spending your money like there will be no tomorrow will render you broke on your retirement. As the inflation rate soar, buy only where you can save a lot like on sale items.    Keep your spending for needs only  Shopping for things you want but you don't really need could make the effect of the high inflation even worse.    Look for extra income  Even if you have a pretty decent take-home pay, having a side hustle will be a great help during this time where the prices of almost everything are rising. Having an extra income could help you beat the effects of the high inflation rate.    Invest  The best way to save is not by putting your money in the bank but to find a profitable investment to make your money grow. Over the years, with the right investments, your money will grow rapidly compared with just putting it into a savings deposit. However, be careful where you invest. Make sure you are putting your hard-earned money to legitimate investments.
