    Gift Tax?

    Hello, I have 2 sisters who have been friends of mine for years. I am not getting any younger, and I am afraid if I put them in my will, there may not be getting the money, for whatever reasons. So I thought, maybe I give them now what I would allot in my will. My question is: If I give them each around 300.000 PHP by way of transfer to their account via TransferWise, would they have to pay any gift or other tax on it?
  3. Lazada may be good. Can I open an account from outside the Philippines for Lazada PH without a PH phone number and pay with an international credit card?
  4. I appreciate your attempt at help @Huggybearman, but please note that my question was: "Is there any way to send load without (or with small surcharge) to a friend's Globe number?" There are many simple ways to send load with a 25-50% surcharge, but since I send load regularly to my friend I am looking for a quick and very cost effective method. :)
  5. I just tried worldremit but their service wants 6.27GBP for a 300 Peso load. Which comes out to be a 25% surcharge. Since I would assume they also make a commission on the load, I think this is just too much. I wish I could get that etopupservice going, but they now have declined 3 cards. Maybe because I am trying to charge them from Thailand, or maybe just because they are glitchy, I don't know.
  6. I made a mistake entering the link in my 2nd post, this is corrected now. Actually I do not live in the Philippines, and I do not have a Globe number. I want to put load on my friends Globe number from outside of the Philippines.
  7. Hm, this site does 500PHP for 10US$, so that is almost without surcharge, but the problem is that my charge was declined. I used my Transfer Wise card. http://www.etopuponline.com
  8. I found the answer myself at this link: https://www.globe.com.ph/prepaid/gosurf.html
  9. My friend says she will get 3 days of data with Globe for 50 Pesos, and 7 days for 100 Peso. Are there amounts that are cheaper per day, f. e. hypothetically 300 Pesos for 30 days? Is there a website link that can show me this information?
  10. They got back on the few Philippine Airlines flights that were running the last few days. One of them was picked up by her family. The other had to pay an outrageous amount to a cab driver to bring her to Cavite. So both are home safely. Thanks to everyone who made constructive comments. :)
  11. Hello, Is there any way to send load without (or with small surcharge) to a friend's Globe number? I am outside the Philippines and do not have a PH bank account. Thanks for your help! :)
  12. I did also think of that as an option. But the family is a bit panicky about the whole corona thing...
  13. Would this be a voluntary quarantine in their homes or will they be locked up somewhere?
  14. Thanks for your kind answers, but I think there has been a slight misunderstanding! They are already in Thailand visiting me and are worried how they would get back to their homes! They have confirmed flights on CebuPacific in 10 days from BKK to Manila.
