Electronic Simplified Processing of Application for Registration of Company


Proceed to OneSEC Processing

The One day Submission and E-registration of Companies (OneSEC) is a subsystem of the eSPARC that is currently catering to registration applications of DOMESTIC STOCK corporations which may be a ONE PERSON CORPORATION or CORPORATION with 2 to 15 incorporators, board of directors and stockholders. This eSPARC subsystem is considered “pass through” since it only requires minimal encoding of data on the part of the registrants, as most of the company information are already pre-filled.

The OneSEC processing is completely seamless and fully automated in the absence of human intervention on the part of the Commission starting from the name verification on the proposed corporate name, until the issuance of the Digital Certificate of Incorporation.

This system aims to provide the following:

  • One – One day approval of the registration application anytime, anywhere
