PROCEDURES

For Taxpayers Under a Computerized RDO

-All applications for ATP of the Head Office (HO) and all its branches as well as the issuance of permit shall be at the RDO or concerned office under the Large Taxpayer Service (LTAD I, LTAD II or LTDO) having jurisdiction over the taxpayer's Head Office.


For Taxpayers Under a Non-Computerized RDO

- All applications for ATP of the Head Office (HO) and all its branches as well as the issuance of permit shall be at the RDO or concerned office under the Large Taxpayer Service (LTAD I, LTAD II or LTDO) having jurisdiction over the taxpayer's Head Office.

- All applications for ATP shall be manually prepared / issued, regardless as to whether or not the branches are under a computerized RDO/office since the HO RDO is not capable of ITS generation of ATPs.

1) There shall be one application for ATP per establishment (for HO or per branch). Each application shall be issued a separate permit. The HO and each branch must have their own independent series of serial number. Example: HO uses series 00001 to 50000; Branch 001 uses its own series from 00001 to 50000.

2) Each application as well as the printed accounting document/s shall reflect the exact address of the branch, TIN and the branch code attached to the TIN.

a) Under a centralized application, the TIN, branch code (if applicable) and address of the HO must be reflected in the printed receipts, sale or commercial invoices used in the business premises of the HO; and

b) For those printed receipts, sale or commercial invoices to be issued/used in the branches (if applicable) must reflect the TIN, branch code and address of the branch/es.

c) The code for the HO must be 000 and sequential series for the branch code, starting from 001

3) The taxpayer provides the RDO having jurisdiction over said branch a copy of the approved ATP. (RMO 28-2002)

4) After printing of receipts/invoices, a Printer's Certificate of Delivery (PCD) shall be issued by the printer. The printer shall have the PCD stamped "Registered" by the BIR Office that has jurisdiction over the taxpayer's place of business. In case the taxpayer has more than one (1) place of business, the printer shall issue to the taxpayer the five (5) copies of PCD duly stamped by the BIR Office which has jurisdiction over the principal place of business (Head Office) of the taxpayer.

5) Within thirty (30) days from the issuance of the PCD, the taxpayer or printer, as the case maybe, shall submit to the concerned BIR office that has jurisdiction over the taxpayer's-user's principal place of business the triplicate copy of the PCD, together with the certified photocopy of approved ATP and the taxpayer's Sworn Statement enumerating responsibilities and commitments of taxpayer-user.

6) Both quintoplicate copy of the PCD and Sworn Statement shall be filed at the BIR Office that has jurisdiction over the place of printer's business which printed the receipts/invoices. (RR 16-2003, RMC 26-2004)
