As a background, this law is passed to make the tax payment process more straightforward and efficient for citizens. Taxpayers must be informed about these changes, ensuring adherence to the latest regulations and enhancing the overall experience of paying taxes by making it smoother and more efficient.  So, what’s new with BIR in 2024?

Removal of the 500-peso registration fee

Both individual and corporate taxpayers can breathe a sigh of relief, as the burden of this registration cost has been lifted. The move will encourage more individuals and businesses to comply with tax regulations without the initial financial hurdle.

Whether you’re a small business owner or an individual taxpayer, this fee waiver is a positive step toward fostering a more accessible and inclusive tax environment.

Sellers are required to issue Official Receipt or Sales Invoice for every sale transaction amounting to 500 pesos and up

New sale transaction requirement in the issuance of SI or OR

Taxpayers are required to issue either a Sales Invoice (SI) or an Official Receipt (OR) for every sale of goods or services amounting to 500 pesos and up.  This measure ensures a more transparent and accountable business environment, aiming to track transactions more efficiently.

Whether you’re a seller of goods or services, this regulation emphasizes the importance of proper documentation for transactions that exceed the 500-peso mark. It not only helps businesses maintain accurate financial records but also provides customers with a clear and official record of their purchases.

Decreased penalty in the non-filing of the year-end inventory list

Starting now, failure to file this crucial document will result in a penalty of 500 pesos. This development underscores the importance of timely and accurate reporting, even for businesses on a smaller scale.

The penalty serves as a reminder for micro and small taxpayers to ensure compliance with inventory filing requirements, promoting transparency and accountability in their financial practices.

The new interest rate for a penalty in the late filing/payment of tax returns

A new interest rate of 6% is now in effect, emphasizing the importance of meeting deadlines. This adjustment reflects a commitment to fair and consistent penalties, ensuring that micro and small businesses stay on top of their tax obligations.

It’s crucial to stay informed about these changes to avoid any surprises and unnecessary financial burdens. So, be vigilant with your timelines and payments to steer clear of the updated interest rates, contributing to a smoother and more compliant tax experience for micro and small taxpayers alike.
