Company registration in Phillipines
Our Filipino lawyers can help businesses navigate the complexities of incorporation, making the process smoother and reducing the risk of legal issues down the line.
Usually, the first step in company registration in Phillipines is reserving the desired name for your company. This depends on the type of company you wish to establish, as there are separate requirements for each of them. We can assist in making sure the business name is legally acceptable and available for registration.
The next step our lawyers can assist with is drafting the necessary documents for incorporation and submitting them to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
After obtaining the Certificate of Incorporation from the SEC, you need to register with the local government units (LGUs) where you intend to operate your business. Our corporate lawyer in Philippines provides guidance on the specific requirements, assists in obtaining the necessary clearances and permits, and ensures compliance with local regulations.
For corporate taxation purposes, you must register with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). Aside from the preparation of required forms, we can also recommend our accountants in Philippines to assist you with financial and tax-related matters.
Our law firm in Phillipines can also help in matters related to immigration, visas, permits, and citizenship.
For foreigners that wish to immigrate to Phillipines for work purposes, we offer advice on the appropriate work visa and Alien Employment Permits (AEPs).
If you are interested in obtaining citizenship, our lawyers can guide you through the process of naturalization or other legal means. We can establish the eligibility requirements, prepare the necessary documentation, and represent citizenship applications.
For family-based immigration processes, we facilitate family reunification by helping clients sponsor family members for visas or residency in the Philippines.
Please note that each immigration case is unique, and our lawyers in Philippines provide tailored solutions to address specific needs and goals.
