Certified Public Accountants (“CPA”), including accountants and bookkeepers, should know the importance of existing BIR revenue issuances in preparing the company’s tax returns. Any mistake committed in preparing tax returns may entail additional cost such as surcharge, interest and compromise penalties. Thus, a taxation module has been developed to address the CPAs’ concerns.

Further, to be an effective tax agent and practitioner, CPAs must know appropriate tax planning to reduce tax payments legally (known as tax avoidance) and must be aware with current techniques used by the BIR revenue officers in the audit and examination of taxpayers.

With the passage of the Tax Reform for Acceleration & Inclusion (TRAIN) law last December 19, 2017 and various subsequent issuances of the BIR on the final implementation and interpretation, we deem it relevant to revisit the highlights of the law which have direct impact on employee withholding and fringe benefit tax.

The BIR has issued numerous revenue regulations and revenue memorandum circulars that are relevant to the aforementioned topics hence, there is a need for this seminar.


After the seminar, the participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the specific BIR rules and regulations in preparing tax returns
  2. Determine the assessment procedures conducted by the BIR
  3. Know the current techniques used by BIR in tax audit and investigation
  4. Familiarize with tax remedies and tax management of taxes.
