Value Added Tax Philippines, In and Out – Seminar

Value Added Tax in the Philippines is one of the most complex tax types where most taxpayers are committing mistakes in application, either in the simple BIR returns preparations, computations, administrative compliance and/or substantiation thereby ending up with a tax exposure, unknowingly. It appears to be simple because you simply multiply gross sales or gross receipts, net of VAT, with 12% but there are many technicalities most taxpayers are not aware of. As a result, they are being assessed not only for additional VAT liability but sometimes because of a simple technicality.
Having this in mind, this seminar is conceptualized to explore the basic requirements and technicalities of existing VAT rules and regulations. Learn the ins and outs of value added tax (VAT) in the Philippines and avoid, if not eliminate unnecessary exposures. Educate for your business advantage.
