After the launch of a pilot program in the beginning of the year, large-scale taxpayers, e-commerce and export firms need to start shifting to the digital issuance of invoices and receipts by 1st of July 2022 as mandated by the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.
Electronic Invoicing System
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) is looking at a live transmission model also known as a clearance model. It is based on the similar solution used in South Korea and will likely be known as the Electronic Invoicing System (EIS). The system will cover the following documents:
- official receipts
- sales invoices
- debit and credit notes
- other similar accounting documents
According to the BIR, companies covered by the obligation are required to issue digital copies of receipts and invoices in XML format.
The EIS, as a web-based system that can be accessed through a URL, hosts three portals:
- EIS Taxpayer Portal
- EIS Certification Portal
- EIS Portal for Revenue Officers
Taxpayers can use the platform to issue e-invoices and e-receipts to their customers. If you would like to know more about the upcoming changes in the Philippines, visit our dedicated page.
