Many investors, both local and foreign, do not know how to register a business in the Philippines. There are people who, despite having high-paying jobs or profitable sole proprietorships, still wonder whether starting their own corporation is better. There will never be a clear answer as to when, why, and where to organize your corporation. However, when you are already sure in forming a corporation, failing to comply with the registration requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other government agencies is inexcusable. Unlike the “when,” “why,” and “where,” the answer to the question of “how to establish and register a corporation” is straightforward. Getting your corporation off to a flying start is your goal, and registering it with the SEC should be the first step.
The Corporation Code of the Philippines defines a corporation as an artificial being created by operation of law, having the right of succession and the powers, attributes, and properties expressly authorized by law or incident to its existence. Corporations may be stock or non-stock. SEC requires at least five (5) incorporators to establish a corporation. Any number of natural persons not less than five (5) but not more than fifteen (15), all of legal age and a majority of whom are residents of the Philippines, may form a private corporation for any lawful purpose or purposes. Each of the incorporators of s stock corporation must own or be a subscriber to at least one (1) share of the capital stock of the corporation.
Due to the separate juridical personality of a corporation, it is a general rule that the shareholders are not personally liable for the debts or obligations of the corporation. The corporate shareholders are liable only up to the extent of their equity investment in the corporation. They have limited liability. The creditors of the corporation can only claim from the properties of the corporation and not from the personal assets of the shareholders. When a corporation needs additional capitalization to fund its expansion and other projects, it may do so by selling shares or issuing bonds. It is not surprising that a corporation attracts more outside investors than the other business structures. The structure of a corporation provides continuity and stability. A corporation continues to exists even though a shareholder dies or transfers his or her shares to third persons.
While a corporation does not guarantee the success of a business, the foregoing advantages make it an attractive business vehicle for investors.
