Default UK citizen - Advice needed for setting up business in Cebu

Hello,

I am from the UK and my girlfriend is Irish. We are hoping to relocate to the Philippines to run a hotel in Cebu. We would be leasing the hotel and running it as our own business. We are looking for any advice on how to achieve this. Thanks for your time, Colin

I have followed a resort business owner right here in the Philippines on You tube and he has many video's on foreigner's who start business here, it's an eye opener, apparently he is leasing his resort right here in the Philippines, he is very knowledgable and he does answer these type of questions, here's the You tube short cut to his website.

DON'T....

If a business in Cebu is making a profit they will not lease it to any-one so dont make a mistake that U can turn it around.

The only Hotel that will lease will be a Hotel that is not profitable...

Snap out of it and open your eyes...regards

Hi Mick,

We haven't secured the hotel yet so don't want to release it's name just yet. Could you give us any advice on setting up a business when a non Filipino can only own 40%? Thanks

Hi Mick,
Whats the name of your resort on Camotes? I visit that Island when I go to the Philippines. I may be travelling there in March and might drop by. I'm also from the UK, Watford and support the Hornets!
Regards,
Pete
