BIR closes down Bulacan warehouse for tax violations
by Allan Yves Briones
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) announced Thursday that it has bolted down a warehouse in Guiguinto operated by five businesses for failing to properly comply with tax code regulations.
“Results of the investigation showed that the five (5) establishments located in the said complex were not compliant with the registration requirements of posting of the Annual Registration Fee, Payment Form (0605), original Certificate of Registration and the poster “Ask for Receipts” or “Notice of the Public”, the statement read.
In the statement, BIR Revenue Region No. 5 – Caloocan City stated that they have temporarily suspended the operations of the following through Section 115(b) of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997:
- Cagayan Corn Products Corporation
- Pacific Rim Transport & Logistics Inc.
- UPFC Logistics Corp.
- AAI Logistics Cargo Express, Inc.
- JCOMP Trading and Distribution
“Section 115(b) of the Tax Code, as implemented through Revenue Memorandum Order (RMO) No. 03-2009, authorizes the BIR to suspend or close the business operations of a taxpayer for a period of not less than five (5) days for failure to: (1) register; (2) issue VAT official receipts or sales invoices; (3) file correct VAT returns; or (4) pay the correct VAT,” BIR said.
The operation was reportedly initiated as part of the tax-collection agency’s Oplan Kandado program, spearheaded on the ground by Regional Director Ma. Gracia Javier.
Deputy Commissioner Arnel Guballa signed the closure order.
