The Stock Transfer Agents (STA’s) certification is a basic requirement for repatriation of investments made prior to 15 March 1973 in PSE-listed securities using FX purchased from AABs/AAB-forex corps without prior BSP approval. On the other hand, FDIs made prior to 15 March 1973 may be serviced using FX purchased from AABs/AAB-forex corps even without the required STA’s certification, provided that the investments are duly registered with the BSP. Application for BSP registration of such investments may be filed with the BSP-IOD subject to the documentation requirements under Appendix 12 of the FX Manual.
