Register your business entity with the Philippine SEC and secure your Certificate of Incorporation or Partnership.
Local and foreign investors that intend to establish corporations, partnerships or associations in the Philippines are required to register their business entities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) before they can conduct business activities and participate in the country’s securities market to buy or trade shares of stock, bonds, interests in a company, and other types of financial assets.
SEC is the national government regulatory agency tasked with supervising the corporate sector in the Philippines. It is also mandated to formulate policies and recommendations on issues concerning the securities market as well as advise Congress and other government agencies on all aspects of the securities market.
Registering your business with SEC is mandatory not only to legitimize its juridical entity but also to enable it to legally engage in business, issue receipts, trade financial assets, and be entitled to certain rights under the country’s corporate and investment laws.
