If you only own 30% of the shares of stocks then you can register as a domestic Filipino corporation, and the minimum paid up capital for a domestic corporation is only Php 5,000.

For foreigners there are restrictions BOTH concerning maximum ownership percentages
and what being allowed to work with himself.

As a new member I'm not allowed to post a link to a list telling about maximum ownership rules and restrictions what foreigners can't be allowed to work with, but perhaps someone else can add such Smile
