Do you rent an office or a commercial space for your business here in Davao?
In this case, you have the obligation to withhold rent payment. The percentage of withholding tax is 5%. During the rental payment, you will pay the landlord / lessor the agreed amount minus 5% for the withholding tax. Instead of giving the full amount, you are going to give your lessor the 2307 form or also known as Certificate of Creditable Tax Withheld At Source as proof that you are going to remit that withheld amount to the BIR.
The form to be filled in is the BIR 0619E form for the Monthly Remittance and 0619EQ for Quarterly Remittance of Creditable Income Taxes Withheld. You can download the form in your eBIRForms. If you find this process difficult, you may want to ask for help from your bookkeeper or accountant.
