Regardless of the business’ geographical location, sector or dimension, for all the companies based in the Philippines, paying taxes is always a difficult and bureaucratic procedure that demands a lot of time, work and financial planning. Outsourcing your tax processing and preparation saves you time, money and ultimately a lot of hassles.
Philippines has eased tax burden on business by reducing corporate income tax rate from 35% to 30% and its government has also created many programs and tax incentives to attract investors to the country as Board of Investments (BOI) and Philippines Economic Zone Authority (PEZA). This effort to boost the international investment and economic growth has been followed by a huge effort from the national authorities and more specifically from the Bureau of International Revenue (BIR) to fight against the tax evasion and impose severe financial penalties against tax evaders.
Although these most recent reforms, paying taxes in the Philippines still remains a very complex task. According to the latest Doing Business Report from the World Bank and IFC, globally Philippines stands at 143 in the ranking of 185 economies on the ease of paying taxes.
This recent report shows how difficult it is to comply with tax rules in the Philippines, where on average a firm has to make 47 tax payments a year and spends 193 hours a year filing.
