    Can a US citizen own 100% of a BPO office in Manila with 100% export services?

    I understand for a domestic corporation to be established it must have at least 5 BOD, of which majority are Filipino citizen. To be in the BOD does a director need to have ownership in the company?

    Tom, yes a BPO can be 100% foreign owned as long as 60% of its services are exported. A 100% foreign owned corporation does not need to have Filipino directors though 3 of the directors must be residents of the Philippines. Every Board member must own at least one share in the corporation.

    What taxes do BPOs have to pay?

    Angel, a BPO has to pay the same taxes as any other business unless it has been granted tax incentives from PEZA or BOI.

    What legal forms are available for a BPO start-up in the Philippines?

    I read in an article that BPOs may only either be a subsidiary or a branch which means it has to have a parent company outside. Is this true or am I missing something?

    Thank you

    Lorraine, a domestic corporation may also be used.
