In-house Tax Seminar at SMEC Philippines

 Tax and Accounting Center, Inc. continued to share its advocacy on helping out  taxpayers in developing their tax compliance and tax management. Last September 8, 2012, it was engaged to deliver a one-day Comprehensive Taxation Seminar at SMEC Philippines, Inc.’s conference room in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. The in-house tax seminar was handled by our Resource Speaker, Mr. Garry S. Pagaspas, CPA with the following scope:

  • Value-added tax compliance – regular/zero-rating/exempt and government VAT applications, refunds of input taxes, substantiations, related reports and attachments
  • Withholding tax compliance – expanded and final with sample applications
  • Corporate income taxation – taxable income, allowable deductions, tax credits, attachments and the 2011 income tax return
  • Withholding tax on compensation and fringe benefit taxation – technicalities and related attachments
  • Overview of the tax assessment process – tax assessment process, taxpayers alternatives and related prescriptive periods

Throughout the in-house seminar at SMEC Philippines participants, questions and clarifications relating to the applicability to its operations are freely raised and were happily answered by our resource speaker. As some participant puts it –

Good that due to their seminar, most of our process were given much clearer information. It has given much guidelines especially on taxes”.

Materials and sample forms are described by another participant as follows:

Materials and sample forms are excellent because I can follow through the discussion easily.

As to the seminar coverage, some would say that:

Excellent, because I’ve been informed of different tax matters/rules that have significant bearing on my job in the company.
