Let's Get on the TRAIN
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued a tax advisory dated 31 January 2018, in connection with the monthly withholding and payment of creditable and final withholding taxes following the amendments under Republic Act No. 10963 (TRAIN Act).
The BIR instructed that taxes withheld within the first two (2) months of every taxable quarter shall be remitted thru BIR Form No. 0605 on or before the tenth (10th) day following the month of withholding.
On the other hand, taxes withheld on the third (3rd) month of every taxable quarter shall be remitted thru BIR Form 1601EQ (or the applicable quarterly withholding tax return), not later that the last day of the month following the close of the taxable quarter during which the withholding tax was made.
