In order to somehow decrease the growing number of vehicles roaming our roads, the BIR released the Revenue Memorandum Order (RMO) no. 12-2016. Entitled “Prescribing the Policies, Guidelines and Procedures in the Manual Issuance of Authority to Release Imported Goods (ATRIGs) for Imported Automobiles Already Released from Customs’ Custody Pursuant to Revenue Regulations No. 2-2016” released last March 29, 2016. This RMO 12-2016 states that released last March 29, 2016. This RMO 12-2016 states that imported automobiles shall be issued an ATRIG certificate before it can be released by the Bureau of Customs. If the vehicle is already released and wasn’t issued an ATRIG yet, the owner has to file the required documents within the set deadline according to the RMO, which is only until March 31, 2016 or face the sanctions.
