Register your Sole Propriestorship with the DTI and secure your Certificate of Business Name Registration.
What’s in a name? In a business, it means a lot. Your business name is your company’s branding, so it should catch attention and can be easily recalled. A business without a name is barely a business because it doesn’t have an identity that customers can remember. Moreover, two businesses with identical names can confuse potential customers and might put all marketing efforts to waste.
Thus, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) encourages every entrepreneur to get a DTI Certificate of Registration. Aside from spending time coming up with a name for your new business, you also need to register it with the DTI, if you’re a sole proprietor.
