  1. Hi, this easy step by step is very informative and helpful. Thank you so much!I have a question, you said that it takes 2 to 3 days to receive the Validation Report. What if it is more than 5 days and still I didn't receive any validation report, should I worry? Please advise


  2. Hi! It happened before when I filed 2550M, it took more than a week for the confirmation receipt. Maybe delayed lang, but as for my experience, never pa ako hindi naka receive ng confirmation reply.


  3. Yep, pwede kahit late. Hindi ko alam before that we have to submit until I received a letter from BIR for non compliance. Wala namang nakalagay na penalty, and we submitted for the previous year up to present.


  4. Hi pasensya na. Sa purchases po ba kasama yung Salaries of employees? Vat-Exempt po ba siya or as service? Tapos pano po kapag walang TIN?


  5. Hi po salamat po sa step by step guide ng VAT RELIEF na ginawa nyo, successful po yung validation. Now Im going to attach the DAT.file to my email, ask ko po anong SUBJECT ng email ko sa kanila? Sa sample po dito sa inyo —– TIN no./ SLP / quarter — tama po ba? ano po ibig sabihin ng SLP


  6. Hi! Hindi po kasama ang Salary, sa 1601C at 1702Q (other expenses) lang po yun ni rereport. Sa purchases purely materials lang dyan po kasi sila nag base sa input tax.


  7. Hi, just want to know..when encoding the quarterly purchases, do we have to create 3 files for the monthly purchases? I think i was doing wrong coz i always use the last month of the quarter to report all the purchases for the quarter. Please enlighten me 😀 Thanks in advance.


  8. This is very helpful.Btw, the penalty for non-submission is 6250 per quarter or maximum of 25k. I think di naman lalabas yung unless you need tax clearance and makita nila yan


  9. Pag wala din sales or purchases for the month, walang report na magegenerate. So hindi kailangan mag submit for that month. Since quarterly submission, submit lang kung ano yung meron for the quarter.


  10. Ask ko lang if pwede ba magsubmit kapag eemail na SLP and SLS in one email or kailangan na separate yung emails for purchases and sales for the quarter


  11. Hi kailangan ba separate yung sa sales and purchase kapag eemail na siya or pwede magkasama yung sales and purchases na attachment for a quarter?


  12. Hi po…tanong ko lang po, ano po ba dapat ilagay na TIN kung branch na po yung pinagbihan? Kasi po it should be 9 digit lang po diba. Thanks in advance.


  13. per receipt po ba yung encoding or per business? and pano po yng sa sales kung di alam ytung tin kasi various customers naman,,


  14. You dont need to import files. copy mo lang yung mga .exe file nung na-install mo yung new version sa target folder mo. ver 2.3 na po ang latest version


  15. Kapag nakapagsubmit na po ba ng Vat Relief online, kailangan pa ba mag submit ng hard copy sa BIR office? salamat.


  16. Ask po ako ulit, kasi pag submit ko po ng vat relief nagreply nman po ng confirmation na na-receive nila yung slsp namin, pero til now yung validation confirmation receipt wala pa rin po. Okay lang po ba if ever di talaga ma-sent sa amin yung validation confirmation receipt? salamat.
