Set up Business in Cebu

18 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

 

I would like to set up a 100% foreign owned company in Cebu. Can anyone recommend me to a good company that can help me do this and also help in work permits for a couple of my staff. I would appreciate if you can email me at xxxxxxxx.

 

Thanking you in advance.

Try the accounting firms like SGV. May not be cheap.

It's not cheap and it's a long process.

 

I have done this for several clients recently and can give you some advice on the process.

 

If you are in Cebu you can contact me via my email - cebuexpatservices@gmail.com - we could meet up and I could run the through your options, the costs and the time frame. This would be free advice; if you want to use our services to set up the company then we would charge a competitive rate.

 

BTW, to the best of my knowledge, no company set up in the Philippines can be legally 100% foreign owned, but it can be effectively 100% foreign controlled.

I have similar as mentioned above. Works nicely. When it comes to different licenses you can contact me through Paul or you might use my company in coop in some way.

Paul is correct on ownership.

 

I disagree.

Where does it say that a foreign entity can have 100% ownership?

So that would be a 100% Foreign owned, Indian restaurant in Ayala, where you can send some of your Indian cooking students to run the place.

 

Will spam be on the menu?

 

 

Jolly good luck Stefan, or is it John!

You can setup a corporation for export - that corporation would need at least 5 directors which all has to own a share.

So example with a million shares - you own 999996 shares and the 4 board of directors own a share each, so

that's a 99.99% ownership.

Businesses may be registered in the Philippines as:

 

Foreign Branch

Foreign Representative Office

100% Foreign Owned Domestic corporation

60/40 Owned Domestic Corporation

Partnership

Sole Proprietorship

 

 

The Foreign Investment Act as well as the Foreign Investment Negative List A and List B contain the restrictions on foreign ownership of corporations in the Philippines.

 

Minimum paid-up capital requirements vary according to the kind business the company engages in. For a Domestic Market Enterprise (DME) to be 100% foreign owned the minimum paid-up capital requirement is USD 200,000.00. DMEs which use advanced technology or employ at least 50 direct employees may be allowed a reduced paid-in capital of USD 100,000.00. Companies which export more than 60% of their products or services may apply for an exemption.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
