Managing BIR Tax Assessments

About the Seminar


Apparently, the BIR is very aggressive in achieving its collection goals ( P1.066 Trillion and P 1.2 Trillion for 2012 and 2013, respectively) and thus, several measures were resorted to achieve that respective goals. Consequently, taxpayers such as single proprietors or corporations are in constant threat for possible tax exposure. Possible tax exposure entails a huge amount of money and unfortunately, some of existing companies were forced to cease operations or dissolve their corporations because they can no longer settle their outstanding tax liabilities with the BIR.
Accordingly, in order to minimize the risk of tax exposure, it is highly important that the taxpayers should know how the BIR officials assess taxes and their state of mind and common findings. It is also equally important that the taxpayers should know their rights, proper remedies and defenses under the circumstances.
