Our team at Loft helps facilitate transactions between you and various government agencies such as the SEC and the BIR.

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. We can help you register a sole proprietorship company, secure your business permits and all needed compliance documents.

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 by sending us a message.


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. We can help you register a partnership company, secure your business permits and all needed compliance documents

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. We can help you register a business entity here in The Philippines, assist with all your corporate compliance needs and even help your employees secure a working visa.

PEZA & BOI Registration

Our business consultants here at Loft will assist your company in determining your eligibility for tax incentives. After that, we will help with the processing of the required documentation for either PEZA or BOI Registration.

New Service Business Permit 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. Ask about our renewal packages today.

Loft offers Business Registration services to local and foreign entities seeking to register a business in the Philippines.

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.
