Finance Undersecretary Antonette Tionko, who heads the DOF Revenue Operations Group, said that they expect the new electronic system to improve tax administration and to make tax compliance more convenient and easier for taxpayers.

I firmly believe that the Philippines’ EIS system will be a real example that shows the importance of digitalization of tax administration supports economic development,” President of the Korea Institute of Public Finance Kim Joejin said.

Based on a report, the agency’s new web-based facility will allow taxpayers to issue electronic receipts or electronic invoices, as well as store and process required sales data, sales amount, buyer information, and more.

Also, the new electronic system allows taxpayers to create their sales data transmission, request EIS certificates, and more.

BIR’s new online system will improve the tax bureau’s efficiency in auditing tax payment deficiencies and will also help the agency with reliable sales data of companies.

The tax bureau will expand the program in order to cover more companies and users in the months to come.
