Congress of the Philippines - Republic Act No. 9178 - Barangay Micro Business Enterprises (BMBEs)


The Congress of the Philippines' Republic Act No. 9178 seeks to hasten the country's economic development by encouraging the formation and growth of barangay micro business enterprises which effectively serve as seedbeds of Filipino entrepreneurial talents. In addition, the act aims to integrate those in the informal sector with the mainstream economy, through the rationalization of bureaucratic restrictions, the active intervention of the government, especially in the local level, and the granting of incentives and benefits to generate much-needed employment and alleviate poverty. The act is divided into several chapters, and covers the following topics:

1. Registration and Operation of BMBEs
2. Incentives and Benefits
3. Penalty
4. Annual Report
