Greetings Bibing, I think only persons who have had experience with the Philippines can answer that question. You have received a Taxpayer Identification Number now that is good. Consider you are having doubts then it is time to visit a lawyer. Cheers!

correct me if I m wrong but mean a falsificator for complete phony papers because for residence permit , one needs to wait at the que and immigration take his thumbprints and photo , ofcourse you can be teledeported in Cyprus like Star Treck at that moment. I see you are starting your business in solid foundations...It existe a company in Cyprus that can obtain for customers, residence permit (yellow slip), TIN (ID tax number), and utility bill, + 1 year lease agreementand,...and all remotely.
Not exactly. Once you have a HKID, this HKID is your TIN. Nothing to do with visas. A lot of people with Hong Kong visas are unable to get a HKID no matter how hard they try, because you basically have to be a company's employeeIn HK once you have a visa, you can use your HKID as TIN
