Representative Office Philippines

A representative office promotes the products and/or services of the Company it represents, but cannot conclude contracts with local entities on behalf of its parent Company. Such contracts must be directly entered into between the Company head office and the local entity. Its activities are limited to the promotion and dissemination of information about the Company’s products and/or services.

By the nature of the activities allowed of a representative office, it cannot derive income from the Philippines. The test of whether an office is a representative office or not, is whether it derives income from its operations.
