Transferring your business registration from one Revenue District Office (RDO) to another is easy. The process involves filling out an application form and paying the required fees.
Are you a registered taxpayer who needs to update your tax registration data? Maybe you want to change RDO because you are now working from a different location?
If so, you need to fill-up BIR Form 1905. Updating a taxpayer’s information is vital because it allows the BIR who has jurisdiction over your business to track the filing and payment of your taxes.
What is the nature and purpose of BIR Form 1905?
BIR 1905 is the form used to update, correct, or cancel a taxpayer’s registration data. This is filled up and submitted to the RDO, having jurisdiction over the taxpayer every time he changes his registration details.
The following changes in the taxpayer’s registration information would require the submission of properly filled-out BIR 1905:
- Transfer of the business address within the RDO or with another RDO
- Change in business or business name
- Closure of business
- Replacement of lost TIN card or Certificate of Registration
- Change in the accounting cycle
