  1. Hi po, nag start po yung Business June 2019 as Individual Vatable. Unfortunately, di po kami nagcomply sa SLSP pero on time filing naman po kami ng 2550Q for 2nd to 4th quarter. Can we still comply ngaun and submit through esubmission? Thanks a lot po.


  2. Ito parin po nakalagay sa BIR website. Kelan po ba nag change yung ruling na lahat na ay mag submit regardless kung nag exceed ng 2.5M or not. Anong year po?VAT taxpayers with quarterly total sales/receipts (net of VAT), exceeding Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Pesos (P2,500,000.00) are required to submit a Summary List of Sales.


  3. Hi! Not sure po sa ruling and what year nag start. You can check from here:\”VAT taxpayers with quarterly total sales or receipts exceeding Php 2,500,000.00 are obligated to submit a quarterly summary list of sales, while those with quarterly total purchases exceeding Php 1,000,000.00 are demanded a quarterly summary list of purchases.\”
