  3. Hello sir, regarding page 1-A, for letter B, do we have to comply with AMLA? If we check “NO”, is it acceptable? Or should we create our own CDD or KYC? Please advice.

    • Hi Irene! If you fall within any of the companies enumerated there under, then you should check “Yes”, otherwise, “No” would be acceptable? What’s the nature of your business, is the primary consideration for this.

  6. Good day, Sir! Thank you for this helpful information! We are a foreign religious organization, doing missionary work in the Philippines, duly registered with the SEC. Our local office handles the receipt and disbursement of donations from the USA, for both salaries and designated “work funds”. We provide a business address for our international workers in the Philippines. We manage donated funds, using bank accounts. Do these activities fall under any of the categories on page 1-A? Perhaps no. 6.c., number 7.a,b,and c? Are we top check ALL boxes that apply, or which one, if any?

  12. Hello, po! Kapag NGO po, sino po ba sa Board ang dapat magfile ng G.I.S. sa SEC? Nung Board Secretary po ako sa alumni association namin, ako and nagfafile dahil sa pagkakaintindi ko sa No.4 ” ‘THIS GIS SHALL BE ACCOMPLISHED IN ENGLISH AND CERTIFIED AND SWORN TO BY THE CORPORATE SECRETARY OF THE CORPORATION.” ay ang secretary nga ang dapat na magfile. Tatlong taon ko rin inasikaso rin.

    Ngayon, bilang treasurer so isang N.G.O., akon ang inaasahang magfile ng Board Secretary namin. Ika niya, sa kumpaniya niya at sa malaking N.G.O. kung saan siya ay Presidente ay ang accountant and nagfafile ng lahat nag iyon.

    Pakiramdam ko naman, nabubully ako rito. N’ung nakaraang dalawang taon, tinulungan ko na ring magfile – para naman sa N.G.O. Hindo ko na nga lang maasikaso na. Ano po ba ang tama? Sana po’y puwede n’yo kaming payuan.

    Maraming salamat po!

  14. Hello Sir, may I ask po if what particular fines will SEC ask if we are not able to submit the new GIS within 30 days after the date of annual meeting? Our annual meeting is April 15 and then one of our stockholders assigned his shares to another person that’s why we needed new GIS with the reflected information as well as the deed of assignment of corporate shares. May I know if what will the penalty be if there is/are any? I hope you could answer my question as soon as possible. Thanks in advance.

  18. Hi, may I ask what will happen if a corporation never files for a GI sheet since its establishment?

    Posted by iwillrockurworld | June 17, 2015, 6:51 am
  19. Hi, I would just like to ask what is the difference between an Updated GIS and an Amended GIS? Is there any SEC ruling or memo circular regarding the same? thanks.

  20. Hi. May I ask if we can file an amendment to our 2013 GIS. In 2013, we filed our GIS with no annual meeting as our principals were abroad. In February 2014, we had our 2013 annual meeting. However, we did not amend our GIS. Can we still amend our 2013 GIS in 2015?
