Registration of non-Individual Taxpayers Made Easier by BIR

The Bureau of Internal Revenue released its Revenue Memorandum Order no. 13-2016 entitled “Prescribing Additional Policies, Guidelines and Procedures in the Processing of Application for Registration of Non-Individual Taxpayers under the Electronic Tax Information System (eTISl) - Taxpayer Registration System (TRS)” last April 14, 2016. This new RMO aims to help the non-individual taxpayers using the new guidelines of on processing and encoding their documents accurately and quickly.

Under this latest RMO, scanners and desktop computers programmed with the eTISI-TRS would be placed in the Client Support Section (CSS) of each pilot Revenue District office (RDO)/Large Taxpayer Assistance Division (LTAD)/ Excise Large Taxpayer Regulatory Division (ELTRD)/Large Taxpayer District (LTD) – Makati/LTD Cebu.

The taxpayers may directly go to the CSS personnel, who in turn, would receive their files such as: BIR form no. 1903, which is needed for the application of registration (these should be stamped received copies); then later on, to scan and encode their documents [eg. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Certificate of Registration (COR), Article pages of Incorporation/Partnership which displays the names of their partners, Proof of Registration/Permit to names of their partners, Proof of Registration/Permit to Operate with BOI, BOI-ARMM, SBMA, BCDA, and PFZA.] This process will both be filled up manually and online. Also, it is the task of the CSS personnel to create a folder for each taxpayer to put in his/her scanned information to be stored online.

Lastly, the Revenue Data Center (RDC) should create a shared directory for the user and teach him/her on how to access his/her files in the directory.
