[As a] foreigner in the Philippines, I needed a good partner for support in legal, immigration, tax, contracts, recruitment, etc. I found in K&C (An In.Corp Company) a team very professional and always willing to work around the customer’s schedule.
In each new destination is a challenge to find an integral support that understands our needs and we found it in K&C.
Expats we moved in with our family and the correct support about our legal immigration status is the starting point for focus in the business.
With our new plant, we expect to increase the services provided by K&C and KCG.
My sincere appreciation and thanks for your swift action!
