BIR Revenue Officers shall conduct the Post Evaluation of said sales machines/software pursuant to a Mission Order, Letter to Taxpayer (addressed to the Head Office and Branches) and Revenue Special Order. Each machine being used for business operations must be registered with the BIR and must have a Permit to Use (PTU) that must be conspicuously attached thereto, showing the following information: a) Name, Address and TIN of the taxpayer-user with Branch Code; b) Machine Identification Number (MIN); c) PTU Number; and d) Brand/Model and Serial Number for CRM or POS Machine and Software license number for cloned machines, pursuant to Revenue Regulation (RR) No. 5-2005 dated February 17, 2005. All POS machines being used must generate the corresponding eSales Journal while CRM must have the corresponding journal tapes installed on both rollers, including Sales Book, or its equivalent and capable of generating Z-reading. The “Training Mode” or “No Sale Transaction Mode” of the CRM, POS and other machines being used in business operations should have been disabled.

Hence, no machine/software shall have a provisional PTU as of August 1, 2015. Any machines/software with provisional PTU are automatically considered as invalid for use by the taxpayer and warrants the imposition of corresponding penalties. However, if the taxpayer is continuously using the machine beyond the above prescribed period, the same shall be subjected to the extraction of sales data (eSales Journal and Z-Reading) from August 1, 2015 up to the conduct of Post Evaluation on a quarterly basis following the taxpayer’s accounting period.

All PTUs issued prior to the expiration of the suppliers’ accreditation are valid for a period of five (5) years from the date of issuance thereof. Taxpayer/s who purchased from suppliers with expired accreditation are prohibited to use the machine/software; otherwise, they shall be subjected to penalty/ies. All receipts/invoices generated from CRM, POS and other Sales Receipting System Software must be in compliance with the provisions of Section 5 of RR No. 10- 2015 (as shown in Annex B of the Order). Taxpayers’ adherence to registration, bookkeeping and invoicing/receipting (manual receipting) requirements shall also be verified during the Post Evaluation. Registered machines may be withdrawn from use, either by retirement or by sale, upon approval of the application for cancellation of PTU by the concerned Large Taxpayers Service Office/Revenue District Office (RDO) where taxpayer-user is registered. Machine with cancelled PTU must no longer be used in the business operation of the taxpayer-user. Otherwise, corresponding penalties shall be imposed for the related violations and extraction of sales data shall be undertaken. A taxpayer/user who has been issued a “Permit to Use Sales Machines” shall not have the machine undergo any major repairs, upgrade, change, modification, update, or removed from its specified location, without prior written notice and approval by the concerned LTS office/RDO where the machine is registered in accordance with RMO No. 10-2005. All taxpayers using CRMs, POS machines and other Sales Receipting System Software enrolled in the eSales System, with or without sales transaction, are required to submit a Monthly Sales Report per machine pursuant to RMO No. 12-2012. This shall include a Roving Machine which is defined as CRMs, POS machines and other invoice/receipt generating machines controlled and managed by the taxpayer’s head office and transferred for use in any of its branches, as the need arises.

Taxpayers with more than 999 branches with PTU issued to machines registered as Roving Machines in accordance with the workaround procedures prescribed under RMO No. 18-2015 shall have notified the Chief of Office of the LTAD/ELTRD/LTD Cebu/LTD Davao via email or letter with the list of branches who have more than 999 TIN branch codes, subject for registration of the machines.
