The Nationwide Tax Roadshow continued to promote tax education to the business owners of Laoag on November 20, 2018. The initiative was spearheaded by the Asian Consulting Group (ACG) as part of its Tax Whiz Academy program. ACG has also partnered with the Center for Strategic Reforms of the Philippines (CSR Philippines) and local DTI Negosyo Centers.
The Philippine Tax Whiz Mon Abrea led the events of the day.
The Nationwide Tax Roadshow began with an interview with Bombo Radyo Laoag. The Founding President of ACG provided his insights on the ongoing tax reform. A prominent advocate, Mon Abrea has been fighting for a genuine tax reform for more than ten years.
The Philippine Tax Whiz conducted a tax seminar for the DTI Negosyo Center – Laoag. In the seminar, the tax expert discussed the common questions asked by startups and how to start a business. He also discussed the ongoing tax reform and how businesses can take advantage of its provisions.
The tax expert also conducted a free tax consultation for the attendees of the seminar.
The Founding President of ACG then headed straight to the Ilocos Norte Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The tax advocate conducted a roundtable discussion and presented the state of the current tax system. He then expounded on how to create a genuine tax reform, especially the administrative reforms.
One of the processes the tax expert noted was the BIR audit. In the current system, the same taxpayers are being audited over and over again without reprieve.
The Philippine Tax Whiz then held another consultation session for taxpayers with pending BIR audit.
