REVENUE MEMORANDUM ORDER NO. 26-2017 issued on October 4, 2017 prescribes the guidelines on the assignment and re-assignment of Revenue Officers involved in Excise Tax functions to establishments where articles subject to Excise Tax are produced or kept. Revenue Officers On Premise (ROOPs) shall be assigned/re-assigned in Establishment Engaged in the Manufacture/Importation/Export of Excisable Products (EEMIEP) every two (2) years based on the following criteria: a. Individual Performance Commitment and Review rating for the last two (2) semesters; b. Industry exposure; c. Involvement in projects; and d. Other factors which include report of discrepancy/finding, which ripened into assessment and or collection In selecting ROOPs to be assigned in a particular establishment, ROOPs previously assigned in establishments belonging to same industry shall be preferred over other ROOPs. In the case of special projects undertaken by the BIR in a particular industry, which require sustained or prolonged training and familiarization both on the part of the pilot establishment/s and the ROOP/s assigned thereat, the Commissioner may allow assignment of ROOPs for more than two (2) years, upon recommendation of the Assistant Commissioner of the Large Taxpayers Service. For purposes of optimizing ROOP distribution, establishments shall be classified according to type of taxpayers (whether manufacturer, importer, trader/dealer, etc.) and then prioritized and ranked according to the amount of annual Excise Tax payments and average growth rate on Excise Tax payments, both based on removals for the last three (3) years. Establishments engaged in the manufacture of excisable products shall be given priority over those establishments engaged in importation, trading and/or storage of tax paid excisable articles. Provided, however, that in the case of establishments engaged in the importation, trading and/or storage of tax paid excisable articles in a given zone, ROOP may be concurrently assigned thereat, in addition to his/her assignments in the manufacturing establishments. No ROOP shall be reassigned back to his/her last two (2) consecutive assignments in Zones, except in meritorious cases. In the case of Excise Tax Areas (EXTAs), however, a ROOP may be allowed to be re-assigned to an establishment engaged in the manufacture of excisable products where he/she was previously assigned prior to his/her present place of assignment, only when deemed necessary. As a general rule, the re-assignment of ROOPs and Zone-In-Charge (ZICs) deployed in Zones I to XII shall be limited to establishments located within the areas of said zones.
