Philippines Expat: Can I help with business permits?

I have had a few requests in the last couple of weeks regarding permits for businesses in the Philippines. Although I love helping people out the business permits are often very easy to do yourself, but advise getting someone who know’s what they are doing in the area your looking to operate. Are you sure you can legally operate the business? Are you familiar with the business? Do you know a good lawyer and accountant? When doing business in the Philippines its best to sit and prepare things in advance.

With lawyers, accountants and other people in an official capacity they are often networked with others. Be very cautious with any of the “prices” they come up with for things. They are however a viable resource with the right people, as the saying goes better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.
