Pinirmahan na ng House Committee ang bill na may panukalang maglagay ng 12% value added tax (VAT) sa iba’t-ibang digital transactions sa Pilipinas. Kasama na rin dito ang mga foreign service providers, online, digital o electronic.

Nagbigay naman ng pahayag si Chairman Joey Salceda tungkol dito. Ayon sa kanya, kailangang magbayad ng malalaking kompanya ng VAT katulad ng Netflix dahil nagbebenta sila dito sa Pilipinas.

“Iyong malalaking kumpanya katulad ng Netflix, nagbebenta sa Pilipinas kaya dapat magbayad ng VAT. Pero wala nang income tax kasi we did not require them to have a domicile here.”

Lahat ng nasa digital service o mga serbisyong ginagamitan ng internet o electronic ay kasama sa bill na ito. Ito ay “an entity which provides digital service or goods to a buyer through an online platform for purposes of buying and selling of goods or services or by making transactions for the provision of digital services on behalf of any person.” Halimbawa na lang dito ay ang Netflix, Facebook, Spotify, Google at iba pang nasa ilalim ng digital service dito sa bansa.

Paglilinaw naman ni Chairman Joey Salceda hindi layunin ng bill na ito ang tirahin ang mga maliliit na business. At wala namang dapat ikabahala ang mga may sale ng 3 million pesos pababa dahil hindi na nila kailangang magbayad ng value added tax.

“If your sales are below P3 million, you are exempt from paying or filing VAT. If your net income as a sole proprietor is below 250,000, you are exempt from paying and filing income taxes. So, the small Facebook online seller will not be taxed, I guarantee you.”
