When do we need to register as a Sole Proprietor in the Philippines?

Once you have a brick and mortar store, an ecommerce site, good and stocks that you maintain, etc., you will need to register as a sole proprietorship in the Philippines.

How do I register a Sole Proprietorship Business?

It’s easy to set up a Sole Proprietorship in the Philippines (at least as compared to a Corporation or a Partnership). To set up a Sole Proprietoship in the Philippines, it requires going to 3 government agencies: DTI, LGU or Municipal Hall and Baranggay and the Revenue District Office of BIR in the city of your business address. Note that you are not COMPLETELY REGISTERED as a Sole Proprietorship if you do not have documents from these three departments.
