The Ultimate Guide on How to Register Your Business With BIR

Published on March 26, 2021 – Posted by: BAIVI Admin

Securing a BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue) business registration is essential to start your enterprise legally. Once you’re officially registered, you have to follow all tax and business laws to avoid criminal liability.

Below is a step-by-step guide to make your registration process fast and hassle-free.

How to Register your Business with BIR

How to register your business in BIR?

Follow these steps to know how to get a BIR certificate of registration.

Step 1: Complete all the requirements

Before heading to the nearest RDO (Revenue District Office) where your business is located, you have to prepare the following BIR requirements for business registration:

Single Proprietorship

Corporations and Partnerships

BIR Form 1901

BIR Form 1903

BIR Form 0605

Photocopy of valid government ID (PRC ID for professionals)

Photocopy of proof of residence

Original copy of a sample layout of sales invoices/official receipts

Photocopy of DTI Business Name Certificate (if applicable)

Photocopy of Certificate of Recording (for partnerships) or SEC Certificate of Incorporation (for corporations)

Photocopy of BMBE Certificate (if applicable)

Photocopy of Working Visa for Foreign Nationals

Photocopy of Franchise Document for common carriers (PUJ, PUV, etc.)

Photocopy of Permit to Operate (if under BOI or PEZA)

Original copy of Special Power of Attorney (if transacting through a representative)

Original copy of board resolution (if transacting through a representative)

DST payment, in case of lease agreement for registered address

Mayor’s Permit or duly received Application Form for LGU registration

Step 2: Proceed to the RDO and get a queuing number

Ask for a queuing number from the guard on duty. Make sure your number is queued for the new business registrant lane.

Step 3: Submit the requirements and pay the registration fee

You’ll be using the BIR Form 0605 for paying the BIR registration fee.

Step 4: Apply for transfer of registration

This is only applicable to applicants who have an existing TIN and are not registered to the RDO where their business is located.

You must also pay for the Documentary Stamp Tax, which costs Php30.

Step 5: Claim the Certificate of Registration or BIR Form 2303

If the BIR officers are available, issuance of the certificate might only take a day. Make sure to inquire about the “Ask For Receipt” notice.

Some RDOs might even require you to be present during the briefing before releasing your COR, while some don’t. You have to be prepared, just in case.

Step 6: Attend the initial briefing for taxpayers

If this is your first time acquiring a business registration, you have to attend a BIR seminar. They will brief you about the responsibilities, duties, and rights of new business owners.

You don’t have to pay anything to attend the seminar — it’s free.

However, it’d still be best if you consult a licensed accountant to grasp the particular requirements expected of your new business. The BIR may not cover all the topics you need for your business, so be open to that idea.

Step 7: Purchase and register the books of accounts

For this, you’d need to submit two original copies of the accomplished BIR Form 1905 along with the books of accounts to the registration section.

Step 8: Apply for Authority to Print

To get the Authority to Print, you’d need a photocopy of paid Registration BIR Form 0605, COR, and accomplished form 1906.

Step 9: Print your receipts through BIR accredited printers

Printing sales invoices or official receipts typically takes one to two weeks.

How Much is the BIR Registration Fee?

The total cost of registering your business with BIR is Php2,830. Here’s the breakdown of the fees:

Annual Registration Fee 500.00
Documentary Stamp Tax 30.00
Registration of Books of Accounts 800.00
Sales Invoice/Official Receipts 1500.00
————————————————————-
Total Php 2,830.00

And there you go — your business is legally registered. Don’t forget to pay your taxes on time!
