REVENUE REGULATIONS NO. 11-2003 issued on March 4, 2003 extends further the deadline for registration and other compliance requirements during the transitory period of the imposition of Value-Added Tax (VAT) on sale of services by professionals and brokers. Professionals and brokers are required to register as VAT/non-VAT taxpayers without penalty not later than March 19, 2003. The sale of services by said taxpayers beginning January 1, 2003, however, is already subject to VAT, except for those whose gross receipts for the preceding year (or expected gross receipts for the current year for new taxpayers) do not exceed P 550,000 (unless they opted to be covered by the VAT system). The newly covered taxpayers may, pending registration as VAT-persons, issue Provisional or Temporary Receipts to acknowledge receipt of payment of service fees from their clients/customers. These Provisional or Temporary Receipts shall immediately be replaced by VAT Official Receipts upon the availability thereof and, at this point in time, the client/customer may then claim input tax credit. Taxpayers who have changed their status from NON-VAT to VAT should submit on or before March 19, 2003 an inventory of unused receipts as of December 31, 2002. Unused non-VAT receipts shall be allowed for use in transactions subject to VAT provided the phrase “VAT registered as of _______________” is stamped on all copies thereof. These stamped receipts shall be allowed for use in transactions subject to VAT until June 30, 2003. Amounts due on sale of services rendered on or before December 31, 2002 and becoming liable to VAT starting January 1, 2003 (payments of which are due on or after that date) shall be considered accrued as of December 31, 2002 for the purpose of VATexemption and payment of any applicable Percentage Tax, subject to the conditions specified in the Regulations. For goods (other than capital goods), materials or supplies not for sale but purchased for use in business in their present condition, which are not intended for further processing and are on hand on December 31, 2002, a presumptive input tax equivalent to 8% of the value thereof, or the actual VAT paid on such goods, materials and/or supplies, whichever is higher, shall be allowed. For this purpose, an inventory of such goods, materials and/or supplies as of December 31, 2002 showing the quantity, description and value should be filed with the RDO not later than March 19, 2003. In the case of brokers, any input tax outstanding in their books and corroborated by their VAT returns as of December 31, 1999 and still unused as of December 31, 2002 shall be allowed as transitional input tax. The VAT Declaration/Monthly Percentage Tax Return covering the transactions for January 2003 should be filed not later than the deadline for filing of the said returns covering the transactions in February 2003 (March 20, 2003 for regular/manual VAT/non-VAT taxfilers and the prescribed date under the staggered filing system for those using the Electronic Filing and Payment System), without any penalty.
