  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?
