Regional Headquarters Philippines


A Regional Headquarters of a multinational company is an administrative branch which principally acts as a supervision, communications and coordination centre for the subsidiaries, branches or affiliates of a multinational company in the Asia-Pacific Region. It is not allowed to do business or earn income from the host country, unlike a branch or subsidiary. Neither does it deal directly with the clients of the parent company, unlike a representative office, when it undertakes such activities as information dissemination and promotion of the company’s products for export.
