BUSINESS TAXPAYERS ADVISORY

“Do something different this tax season”

In line with the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s collection goal set by the new government administration, all big business taxpayers in Cebu who despite the substantial annual sales generated have been noted to have the very low-Income Tax and VAT payments to BIR. Thus, They are hereby encouraged to increase tax compliance to BIR. 

BIR Regional Director Alfredo V. Misajon intends to provide an avenue for the business sector and the Bureau to have a harmonious relationship in the ease of doing business rather than pursuance of the strict remedy of audit investigations in enhancing tax compliance.

Therefore, let’s make a difference this tax season by increasing Income Tax and VAT payments  significantly.

For inquiries, please contact the BIR RMO 12 at telephone number 232-8575 and telefax 260-2141.
