The applicant manufacturer/distributor/dealer/vendor shall provide a MIN Sticker in strict compliance with the standard design, format, size and paper quality prescribed in a separate revenue issuance to be issued by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue in accordance with the eAccReg system requirements wherein the system-generated MIN information shall be printed per Permit per machine. The Permit and the MIN Sticker shall then be forwarded to the buyer of the machine, and shall serve as the taxpayer’s authorization to use the machine. The PTU must be kept by the buyer/user in the place of business, head office or branch, where the machine is located and authorized to be used, and must be readily available for verification by the Revenue Officers during Tax Compliance Verification Drive (TCVD) activities and/or during audit/ investigation. The MIN Sticker shall be a security void sticker which reveals a warning message once opened, removed, resealed or tampered. The MIN Sticker must be securely attached at the back of the machine to which it refers and must be conspicuously visible to the public. The MIN Sticker shall contain the following information, to facilitate verification: a. Machine Identification Number; b. Name and TIN of the buyer/user (12 digits) and Branch Code; c. Permit to Use Number ; d. Machine Serial Number; e. Barcode. xxx xxx xxx” Failure of the taxpayer to register POS/CRM and/or business/sale machine generating receipts/invoices shall be subject to a penalty of P 25,000 for the first offense, and P 50,000 for the second offense. If warranted, a criminal case may also be filed against the offender, where the criminal penalty imposed is a fine of not less than P 1,000 but not more than P 50,000 and imprisonment of not less than two (2) years but not more than four (4) years. For purposes of the Regulations, the mere failure to post or attach the MIN Sticker to the POS/CRM and/or business/sale machine generating receipts/invoices shall be subject to a penalty fee of P 1,000 per machine or institution of a criminal case against the offender where the imposable penalty shall be a fine of not more than P 1,000 or imprisonment of not more than six (6) months, or both pursuant to Section 275 of the National Internal Revenue Code, as amended, as implemented by Revenue Memorandum Order No. 19-2007.
