Philadelphia, November 10, 2011 – Mayor Michael A. Nutter officially launched phase two of the Business Services Center, a website that provides companies with a tool to understand the permits, licenses, financing, taxes, tax credits and services through the City that relate to their business.
“Our Administration is committed to making Philadelphia a smart city and a smart choice for business, and this new, online tool is one more way for companies to get the information they need to do business in Philadelphia,” said Mayor Nutter.
Since launching the “Business Assistant” wizard on the site in September 2011, 720 users have registered and created business profiles and more than half of these registered users indicated they were looking for information on creating or expanding a business. The site is the result of cross-departmental cooperation to provide companies with a full understanding of the services the City offers to businesses.
