VAT symposium Feb. 12

A symposium on the value-added tax (VAT) and other revenue issuances and regulations will be held at the Malabon-Navotas district office of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on Feb. 12.

Nestor Valeroso, Valenzuela revenue regional director, said the symposium aims to enlighten taxpayers on the salient features of the controversial VAT and other tax regulations being implemented by the BIR to augment the governments coffers.

The symposium is scheduled from 1-5 p.m. and will be held at the forth floor of the Malabon city Square along the C4 Road, Barangay Longos, Malabon City.

Invited as guest speakers to the symposium are Mayors Amado Vicencio of Malabon and Toby Tiangco of Navotas.

Among them are the rules prescribing the information to be periodically required or obtained in registering and recording transfers of real properties with the register of deeds and the amendments to the tax code of 1997 on the requirements for deducting bad debts from gross income. (Jun Ramirez)
