E-invoicing in Philippines

The Philippines joined the digital e-invoicing revolution

Following an increasing number of countries, the Philippines also took the first step towards implementing e-invoicing through a pilot project. The Department of Finance (DOF) has announced a new timeline for the pilot e-invoicing program, effective from July 1, 2022, where it became mandatory for the country's major taxpayers and exporters to start transmitting their invoices to the government (B2G).

The goal is full implementation, based on the Tax Reform Act for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN), after the launch of the pilot program. The Department of Finance is planning to implement e-invoicing in 2023 through a gradual phasing-in.

This pilot program helped establish the foundation for the e-invoicing system in the Philippines.

The electronic invoicing system (EIS) simplified tax compliance, enforce a supporting infrastructure, streamline business processes, and maximize the usability of information while also increasing its digital literacy.

How EIS works in the Philippines?

In the Philippines, a clearance approach has been applied and the electronic invoice system (EIS) requires the issuance of an electronic invoice to the recipient and the reporting of this invoice data to the tax authority (XML format). This entails an invoice report sent to the government's central platform, an invoice reporting and monitoring system called Continuous Transaction Control (CTC), similar to the model used by South Korea, which supported the Philippines in developing its electronic invoice reporting system. 

The electronic invoice system (EIS) covers accounting documents including invoices, receipts, debit notes and credit notes.
