Be informed of the salient features of the Ease of Paying Taxes (EoPT) Act or Republic Act No. 11976. This new law introduces reforms which aim to modernize tax administration and improve efficiency by providing mechanisms to encourage easy compliance on the part of taxpayers.

The salient features of the EOPT Act are as follows:

  • Classification of the taxpayers into micro, small, medium, and large with special concessions for micro and small taxpayers (i.e., maximum of two pages for income tax returns; reduced penalties)
  • Electronic or manual filing of returns and payment of taxes to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), or through ANY authorized agent bank or authorized tax software provider
  • Removal of the requirement that tax be deducted/withheld from income payments and remitted to the BIR for deductibility of income payments to apply
  • Withholding of taxes  to apply when income payments become payable
  • Imposition of value-added tax (VAT) on services to be based on gross sales
  • Requirement to issue a VAT invoice for every sale of goods and services
  • Use of a VAT invoice to substantiate input VAT claim from purchases of goods and services
  • Classification of VAT refund claims into low, medium, and high-risk
  • Tax base of percentage taxes imposed under the following sections of the NIRC now based on gross sales (no longer on gross receipts) or on “amount billed” (no longer “amount paid”) or on “gross sales or earnings” (no longer “gross sales, receipts, or earnings”)

  • Removal of the annual registration fee requirement of Php500.00
  • Cancellation of BIR registration upon mere manual or electronic filing of an application for the same
