Carmen Reyes – A Look into PEZA and Non-PEZA Offices in the Philippines

Ep 047 - Carmen Reyes

Derek is joined again by Carmen Reyes, an architect by profession. She will briefly discuss about PEZA and the differences of PEZA and non PEZA offices.

Summary

  • Carmen and Derek specifically discussed the differences between PEZA certified offices and normal offices.
  • PEZA stands for Philippine Economic Zone Authority which according to Carmen is a trade distinction that the government’s offering to foreign companies to encourage them to operate in the Philippines.
  • According to Derek this is to simplify things and there are some tax advantages to companies that are PEZA accredited.
  • However, the entire process is quite tedious and there are a lot of requirements needed.
  • Derek pointed out that learning about PEZA is invaluable for companies who are planning to outsource to the Philippines. It also highlights the convenience of going for a more established BPO companies to avoid the hassle.
  • The office density of PEZA accredited offices is lower than normal offices. So, fewer people can fit in a certain space.
  • There are a lot of buildings, even compounds that are PEZA registered meant for PEZA purposes. This is to make things easier for foreign companies.

Key Points

  • This is relevant most especially for companies who are planning to outsource to the Philippines.
  • The office density of PEZA accredited offices is lower than non-PEZA offices.
  • Nowadays a lot of people are getting advice if registering for PEZA is the right decision for their companies given the amount of paperwork you need to accomplish for accreditation.
