Paying government transactions in each office are surely a difficult task to do. But, worry no more as the government is now re-developing a scheme to address the citizens’ frustration with the government transactions.
PHPay, together with ProgRESIBO, is an internet-based electronic payment access for citizens and businesses to remit payments electronically to government agencies through different payment channels such as debit/credit instructions and mobile wallets.
As its benefits, government agencies to free up their staff and focus more on competencies and payments are made more efficient and less time-consuming for citizens and businesses. Face-to-face transactions will also be eliminated. There will be no place for fixers and fewer opportunities for graft and corruption.
Initially, PHPay and ProgRESIBO will accommodate all tax payments to BIR and will certainly expand its services later on.
