Nelson Aspe, BIR regional director for Revenue Region 8 (Makati), told reporters the proposed rules would align the accreditation process of the BIR with that of other agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission. Aspe
said the proposed guidelines would further simplify the accreditation process under the RR 15-1999 and make it at par with the procedures of other government agencies.
Under the proposed guidelines, no tax practitioner or agent should represent conflicting interest and must make sure that any of his
representations in his
practice before the BIR
contain no falsehood.
The agent or practitioner must inform his
client about the possible penalties if he
fails to pay the correct taxes.
