Philippines Implements Quarterly VAT Return Filing from 2023

The Philippines Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has issued Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 5-2023 of 13 January 2023, which provides transitory provisions for the implementation of the quarterly filing of VAT returns starting 1 January 2023, pursuant to Section 114(A) of the NIRC of 1997 (Tax Code), as amended by the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Act (TRAIN Law). From 1 January 2023, VAT-registered taxpayers are no longer required to filing the monthly VAT return/declaration (BIR Form No. 2550M), but are instead required to file the quarterly VAT return/declaration (BIR Form No. 2550Q) within 25 days following the close of each quarter. For this purpose, Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 5-2023 sets out the transitory filing requirements and deadlines, including for taxpayers that do not follow the calendar quarter.
