With the Bureau of Customs’ (BOC) thrust to computerize manual processes and enhance its Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems and infrastructures, the Management Information System and Technology Group (MISTG) implements the Payment Application Secure 6 (PAS6) that is connected to the Bureau’s Electronic-to-Mobile (E2M) System on July 1, 2022.
The BOC E2M System which enables all stakeholders to have access to the services of the Bureau, online and at any time, is now linked to the PAS6 for a more efficient payment facilitation.
The added feature ensures the accurate and immediate exchange of transaction information on the assessment details of payable duties and taxes. In addition, the system allows the processing of shipments to be cleared in a shorter period of time as payments are processed in a seamless manner.
The PAS6’s design allows the completion of payments within minutes for better customer experience and is directly connected to the PhilPass through the PCHC Payment Gateway, ensuring that remittances to the BOC’s Treasury Single Account are done immediately and accurately.
The Bureau of Customs continues with its mission to improve and deliver efficient government services to all its stakeholders especially amidst the ongoing pandemic to encourage a positive and strengthened economic growth in the country.
