SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan’s (SyCipLaw) publication about the general guidelines in doing business in the Philippines has been updated. It aims to showcase the Philippines as an attractive venue for business ventures, to guide the businessmen and lawyers alike in their business decision making, and to help investors restart the Philippine economy in connection with the lifting of certain COVID-19-related quarantine restrictions.

The updates include the changes in the requirements to set up a corporation based on the Revised Corporation Code of the Philippines (Republic Act No. 11232) and the recent issuances of the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission, which intend to make it easier to do business in the Philippines.

SyCipLaw partners Bhong Paulo A. Macasaet and Joan Mae S. To-Conejos prepared the updated version, with the assistance of legal assistants Kevin Joseph C. Berbaño, Raymond Joseph S. Garcia, and Ma. Jhysty G. Pineda.
