UPDATE: Philippines proposing to apply VAT on e-services from July 2023

30 November 2022

From 1 July 2023, the Philippines House of Representatives are proposing to introduce VAT on the supplies of electronic services by non-resident companies in the country.

Currently, foreign businesses providing digital services to consumers in the Philippines do not have to charge VAT on their sales. However, to remove the unfair advantage this gives to non-resident companies over resident providers, the Philippines government are proposing that VAT at 12% will be applied to these types of transactions.

This will be applied to a range of electronic services including streaming games, music, apps, films, e-books, e-journals, and internet services.
