CEO Corner


(Delivered during BDB Law’s
5TH Anniversary and
Launching of the Book on “Taxation of Insurance Companies in the Philippines”)
(Dusit Hotel, Makati City, July 8, 2014)

THANK YOU!  Thank you very much for joining us this evening.

When we were filming my part of that video, I realized that it is a lot easier to be a lawyer than a television personality.  So, I decided to just stick with my current profession – a tax lawyer.

That Video ‘says it all’ about our firm.  We had a modest beginning, but it’s the love for the work that we do and our passion for hardwork, excellence and good service that made us to what we are today.

It is this same passion that gave us the desire to help create a tax environment where government and business can see “EYE to EYE” – an environment where the government, in craftingthe laws, rules and policies, would appreciate the side of business, and on the other hand, where businesses are governed by a culture that payment of proper taxes is a good business practice. 

In line with this, we made a commitment to ourselves, to continue to write books especially on difficult subjects of taxation – where no one dared write about,  to serve as a guide or reference not only for taxpayers and the academe, but also for the government, that they may craft rules that are helpful and  not disruptive of business.

On our first year anniversary, we released our book on ‘Taxation of Banks and Other Financial Intermediaries’.  Today, on the occasion of our 5th year anniversary, we are launching the book on ‘Taxation of Insurance Companies’  -  the first book in the Philippines to be written on this subject. It’s a comprehensive reference book that covers life, non-life, professional reinsurers, pre-need companies, mutual and cooperative insurance, government insurance companies, insurance brokers and agents and it touches a little on HMOs

These books were written as objectively as possible, taking positions where necessary, without due regard to whether it is pro-business or pro-government. 

I thank the Insurance Commissioner, Com. Emmanuel Dooc, who I have known long before he became the Commissioner, for graciously accepting to do the FOREWORD for this book.   Commissioner, I would like to present this book as our contribution to the insurance industry during your term as the Commissioner.   

May I invite you on stage with me to accept this book.
