Business Registration

SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP - is a form of business owned by a single person, referred to as the “sole proprietor”. This form of business is registered with the Bureau of Trade Regulation and Consumer Protection (BTRCP) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
SUBSIDIARY – DOMESTIC CORPORATION - is a form of business entity created in accordance with laws of the Philippines. It is considered as a separate and distinct entity from its owners (shareholders), as such it has its own juridical personality.
BRANCH OFFICE - is considered as an extension of the parent company. Registration as a branch office in the Philippines entitles a foreign corporation to do business in the country without a need to create a separate entity from its parent company. As such, it is not required to have directors or officers separate and distinct from its parent company.
REPRESENTATIVE OFFICE - A representative office is a business structure of a foreign corporation that can do the following business activities:
  1.   Information dissemination;
  2.   Promotion of the products of the head office;
  3.   Provide quality control of the products of the head office; and
  4. Act as a communication center.
A representative office cannot have income in the Philippines, as it can only be a cost center of the head office for it to provide for back office support services.
