I mostly write about entertainment, local and foreign news, updates on technology, exam results, and also viral photos or videos that were circulating on social media.

BIR relaxed the rules for POGO’s resumption of operations and clearance applications.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) had relaxed the rules for Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) application for tax clearance for service providers and licensees.

Aside from this, the Bureau of Internal Revenue also relaxed the rules for the resumption of its operations amidst community quarantine measures that were implemented in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The government previously allowed licensees and service providers of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators to resume its operations last May, provided, that they should follow precautionary measures and were cleared by the Bureau of Internal Revenue as tax compliant.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue issued Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 64-2020, dated June 24, wherein the Bureau revised the requirements and guidelines for service providers and licensees of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators for the processing of their application for a BIR Clearance in connection with the resumption of its operations as stated in Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 46-2020.

Carlos Dominguez III, the Secretary of the Department of Finance, said that the DOF was already looking into claims that only two Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators had paid taxes as a requisite to resume its operations, yet added that such claims were “probably true”.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue had said that the legal issues were hampering the collection of franchise taxes from Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators, adding that the firms had claimed that they shouldn’t be subjected to such taxes as they’re non-resident corporations.

Dominguez also said that government revenues from Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators should reach as much as PHP 20 billion annually, but collections had only reached PHP 6 billion last 2019.
