Are you a business owner in the Philippines wondering about BIR Form 2307? In this post, we'll provide a guide to BIR Form 2307 and cover the essential information you need to know about filling it out.
BIR Form 2307, also known as the Certificate of Credible Tax Withheld at Source, is used to present the income of an individual or business entity that is subject to Expanded Withholding Tax (EWT) paid by the withholding agent.
The form lies under assets in the accounting books and is considered an income tax prepayment since the deductions are from the income tax dues of the taxpayer (quarterly and annual income tax return). It is important to taxpayers as it provides credible proof of their withholding tax. Taxpayers cannot claim their tax credit without the Certificate of Credible Tax Withheld at Source or BIR Form 2307.
Most of the time, self-employed freelancers or part-time freelancers are the people who need to file the form. However, even a business owner could be an issuer or recipient of this form. There are employers who hire project-based employees that need to file the BIR Form 2307, which needs to be submitted along with the quarterly and annual Income Tax Return or the BIR Form 1701 for employees, and BIR Form 1702 for companies and corporations. After filing the form, the amount of withholding tax will be accepted as a tax credit on the quarter or year it was earned.
