Business Registration for Shared Service Centers in the Philippines

A shared service center is responsible for handling and executing a particular set of operational tasks for a business company, including accounting, human resources (HR), payroll, IT, and legal assistance. As Philippine IT-BPO continues to grow and expand, the number of shared service centers being established in the country is also rising on a rapid scale. The Philippines is considered an ideal location for setting up serviced centers, for several reasons:

  • Steady Economic Growth
  • Competitive Labor Costs
  • Skilled Labor
  • Liberal Business Environment
  • Government-issued Tax Incentives

The Philippine government offers a wide range of incentives for shared service centers setting up business operations in the country. These include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Tax holidays
  • Duty-free importation of capital equipment
  • 5% overall tax rate
  • Tax holidays and exemptions
