BIR Deputy Commissioner
Hear Clint Aranas describe the dramatic changes coming to the BIR at the 1st Asia CEO Forum of 2017.
If you were afraid of the BIR before, just wait till you hear what’s in store in the future. All the rules are changing and the “creative solutions” used in the past will no longer work.
Tax reform is said to be long overdue, according to analysts. Philippines has among the highest income tax rates in Southeast Asia BUT the lowest tax collection rates.
Excise taxes are considered more progressive than income taxes but these are the lowest in Asia. Cigarette prices, for example, are almost the lowest in the entire world because of low excise taxes — and Filipinos are among the world’s heaviest smokers as a result.
The new Duterte administration’s focus on reform and transparency makes this probably the only time in our lives when true change can be accomplished.
Deputy Commissioner Clint Aranas is considered the most experienced tax specialist among the elite group now leading the Bureau of Internal Revenue, according to analysts. As a career tax lawyer, he has served many of the nation’s largest local and multinational organizations and has intimate knowledge of the BIR from his many years of dealings. Hear him describe what is in store for one of the nation’s oldest and largest government organizations.
We also welcome Mon Abrea, the nation’s best known tax reform advocate and guru, for an special interrogation of the Deputy Commissioner’s plans and ideas.
