BIR Certificate of Registration
The Certificate of Registration issued by BIR (BIR Form 2303) contains an enumeration of the types of taxes that are required to be paid to the government, which includes the following: - Corporate income tax - Value-added tax - Withholding taxes (on compensation, fringe benefits, etc.)
Why it is important?
Registering your business with the BIR gives you the authority to print your official receipts and invoices, formally register the Tax Identification Number (TIN) provided for your company in the Certificate of Registration issued by SEC, and register the books of accounts you are required to annually register with BIR to serve as official record of your business transactions for the fiscal year.
