BMBE offers sevaral advantages to the small entrepreneur. Some of the advantages of the BMBE law are:
1. Exemption from Income Tax
2. Exemption from the Minimum Wage Law
3. Assistance from Government Owned or Controlled operations (I assume lending and training)
An excerpt from the law says:
"whose total assets including those arising from loans but exclusive of the land on which the particular business entity's office, plant and equipment are situated, shall not be more than Three Million Pesos (P3,000,000.00)."
Which I guess the businesses that would fall under this business law are the likes of Sari-Sari stores, Computer Shops, Franchised Food carts/food stalls, small restaurants and the likes. While I'm not very comfortable of the minimum wage law that the BMBE gives, it surely is an advantage for those who want to start a small business but don't have enough capital to pay workers.
