A wave of governments placing restrictions on foreign real estate investors

New Zealand became the latest in a wave of governments placing restrictions on foreign investors, joining countries like Denmark and Switzerland, which have long restricted real estate investment by non-citizens.

Other countries taking similar measures in recent years include Australia, the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia, Singapore. Britain is considering adding a 1 percent tax on home purchases made by non residents, and Malaysia is also eyeing new levies.

Restrictions like these have led to slower growth in many of the areas that have adopted them.

The Philippines are currently opened to foreign investments and are about to ease the foreigners’ business. Catch the right time and get in touch: admin@helyos.com.ph

The Philippines are upgrading Corporate Law

It was time to upgrade the existing 38 year old Corporate Code and it will be now easier to do business in the Philippines.

The amended Corporation Code allows the formation of a corporation by a single person and grants a perpetual corporate term, plus some minor but significant rules which make easier the corporate governance and operations.

Filippine: prosegue il percorso di apertura alla proprietà maggioritaria da parte di stranieri investitori 

Come annunciato durante la campagna elettorale e confermato durante i primi mesi del suo mandato, il nuovo presidente delle Filippine Rodrigo Duterte prosegue il percorso di apertura alla proprietà di beni e business nelle Filippine, un Paese in forte sviluppo  (miglior performance di crescita nel sud est asiatico, meglio della Cina, nel terzo trimestre 2016). Il percorso in itinere prevede in particolare la rimozione del limite del 40% alla proprietà straniera, consentendo di fatto agli investitori di detenere la maggioranza delle quote societarie e, di riflesso, il controllo reale del loro business. 

Imprenditori e inventori interessati possono trovare in Helyos Partners un riferimento serio e indipendente per valutare le opportunità di sviluppo e investimento nell’area.

Very positive report about the Philippines from IMF Executive Board on October 2016

On September 14, 2016, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) concluded the Article IV consultation with the Philippines.

The Philippine economy has continued to perform strongly. Real GDP regained strength from a slowdown in mid­2015 to record a robust 5.9 percent growth rate in 2015 and 6.9 percent in the first half of 2016. Both consumption and investment grew rapidly, while net exports were held back by weak external demand. Job creation was also strong, with the unemployment rate declining to 6.3 percent in 2015 and 6.0 percent in the first half of 2016. Inflation has remained moderate, falling below the BSP’s target band (3±1 percent) in 2015 and the first seven months of 2016 due to lower commodity prices. The external and fiscal position remained robust in 2015, with a current account surplus of 2.9 percent of GDP, gross international reserves of US$81 billion (or 11 months of imports of goods and services), a national government fiscal deficit of 1.4 percent of GDP, and general government debt at 35 percent of GDP.

Il vostro prossimo viaggio d’affari? Nelle Filippine: ecco perché.

Con le sue promettenti prospettive economiche, non c’è probabilmente mai stato un tempo migliore per sviluppare affari nelle Filippine.

L’evoluzione continua dell’integrazione economica tra i diversi Paesi del Sud Est Asiatico (ASEAN, qualcosa di simile alla prima fase del Mercato Comune Europeo) rende particolarmente interessante guardare alle Filippine sotto diversi punti di vista:

  • un mercato di sbocco commerciale (oltre centro milioni di consumatori il cui reddito cresce costantemente e regolarmente da anni)
  • una base logistica ed operativa per produrre ed esportare nell’area ed ovunque nel mondo (sono ben consolidate alcune aree speciali con incentivi fiscali molto attraenti)
  • un centro servizi in outsourcing, che si sta affermando come tra i migliori al mondo per il servizio clienti in lingua inglese  (i nostri call center, qui chiamati BPO, costituiscono una delle principali basi del prodotto interno lordo nazionale).
  • un luogo dove investire in immobili, con convincenti prospettive di crescita del valore e di reddito anche nel breve periodo, a condizioni interessanti ed accessibili (la proprietà privata perpetua e piena, come siamo abituati a pensarla, è assolutamente garantita a cittadini e società stranieri per appartamenti e uffici).

Helyos Partners, basata nella capitale e maggiore metropoli filippina Manila, è una finestra professionale e indipendente sulle opportunità di investimento e business nel Sud Est Asiatico, in particolare nelle Filippine.
