The deadline for filing and paying for the Annual Registration Fee is every 31st of January or end of the month.
Taxpayers must ensure timely filing and payment to avoid any penalties and additional charges that you may incur as a result of late filing and payment.
Good thing that we have an option to file and pay for it electronically using the eBIRForms application and GCash application.
Therefore, this helps us save a lot of time and effort because we no longer need to physically visit the RDO to file for it and the accredited bank to pay for it.
