ATRIGs at National Level

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) released this order to implement the centralized policy of processing and issuance of Authority to Release Imported Goods (ATRIGs). The order calls for all applications to be processed and issued at the BIR’s National Office, specially the Excise LT Regulatory Division (ELTRD). Furthermore, all ATRIGs from Regional Offices and Excise Tax Areas (EXTAs) are nullified and void, effectively.

Finally, all manually processed and issued ATRIGs from Regional Offices for VAT exempt transaction shall be stamped with the phrase, “NOT VALID FOR ALL EXCISABLE PRODUCTS.”
