About the Seminar

In the operation of withholding tax system, the withholding agent is the payor, a separate entity acting no more than an agent of the government for the collection of the tax in order to ensure its payments.   The withholding agent-payor is liable for his failure to perform his duty to withhold the tax and remit the same to the government.  Under the present rule, failure to withhold taxes will cause the disallowance of expense notwithstanding the payment of the withholding taxes at the time of audit investigation.  
          Consequently, knowledge of the tax laws, rules and regulations on the taxation of withholding tax is imperative so that the company may minimize the risk of deficiency withholding tax and its corresponding penalties and to deficiency income tax for the disallowance of the expenses not subjected to withholding tax.
