Business Registration Made Easy

We know how stressful it is to launch a new company, especially with the seemingly endless paperwork, and back and forth trips to different government agencies. This is why Loft offers end-to-end company formation and business registration services so you can hit the ground running in no time. We provide hassle-free service for the most common company types through our out of the box packages.

Sole Proprietorship

For new entrepreneurs, this is the simplest and fastest way to register a business. A single owner controls all assets and profits and can freely mix business and personal assets.

One Person Corporation

Enjoy most of the benefits of a traditional corporation without the need to bring in more stockholders. Learn more about OPC, including our registration packages here.


A general or limited partnership, consisting of two or more individuals, might be suitable for some foreign companies who wish to venture into business in The Philippines.

Foreign Corporation

If you are a foreign company or investor, you may register as a domestic corporation, or a resident foreign corporation via a Branch Office, Representative Office, RHQ or ROHQ.

New Service Business Renewal

Plan your business permit renewal ahead of time to avoid long queues and possible penalties. Avail our renewal services and we can save you the hassle of doing the paperwork yourself.

FAQs on Business Registration

What's the scope of Loft's business registration services?

Loft offers Business Registration services to local and foreign entities seeking to register a business in the Philippines. We provide end-to-end assistance, from company incorporation, foreign licensing, application for business permits, and corporate housekeeping/secretarial work to determining eligibility for government tax incentives, general compliance work, and corporate restructuring.

We offer expert advice to businesses of all sizes, from small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs) to multinational corporations, on the most suitable business entity you can register, whether your purpose is to incorporate a local company or obtain licensing for setting up your back-office or regional headquarters in the Philippines.

We can also help you assess the suitability of your market-entry plans while evaluating the following:

  • Nature of business
  • List of business activities to engage in
  • Capital requirements on the chosen industry (and options for reducing the minimum capital required for starting operations)
  • Appointment of Nominee Director/s or Resident Agent
    Designation of Corporate Officers (President, Corporate Secretary, Treasurer, etc.)
  • Need for special or secondary licenses/permits (if client will engage in a regulated industry)
  • Ideal location for the business
  • Staffing requirements to assess the approximate size of office space and facilities
Do you work with a third party legal team or do you have your own?

Loft employs its own corporate lawyer and a team of accountants and business registration experts.
