Washington Law Review


The impact of the Philippine system of taxation is of great importance to American investors and businessmen. According to the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the total direct United States investment in the Philippines at the end of 1963 was 415 million dollars and of this amount 110 million dollars are invested in manufacturing. Consequently, the aim of this Article, after briefly tracing the history of Philippine tax laws, is to present a thorough but concise discussion of the tax consequences of establishing and operating a business, with emphasis on American owned or controlled corporations, in the Philippines.
