Business Registration FAQs

Here are the answers to your questions. Hope these will help clarify things!

About Documents

Why do I have to personally get my Occupational Tax Receipt or OTR and Barangay Clearance from the Barangay / Municipal Hall?

This Municipal / Barangay requires personal appearance since they want to do due diligence of the business owners and professionals conducting business in their city.

I don’t have Occupational/Professional Tax Receipt in the list of requirements until now. Is this really required or only if applicable?

Some Revenue District Offices require it, and some don’t. 

So you may submit your documents without it, but in the event the RDO will require it, we will get back to you and we will need you to send it to us to continue processing your registration. The Occupational/Professional Tax Receipt can be requested from your municipal hall.

How to fill out the FORMS?

For each of the form, please fill out the following fields:

FORM 1901
• TIN (you should have your own personal TIN before registering as a non-licensed professional/freelancer)

• Check Head Office if you have only one address for your profession / business

• Taxpayer Type:

– If you are a full – time freelancer/non-licensed professional, choose “Professional – General". If you are a freelancer/non-licensed professional with employment from a local (Philippine) company, choose “Mixed Income Earner – Compensation income earner & Professional". 

*Note that if you have a business that is a sole proprietorship, it is a business with a Business Permit from the Mayor’s office / Municipal Hall. If you have this, your choice should include the option with Sole Proprietorship.

• Tax Payer’s Name or your Complete Name (name of the Professional)

If your business address is outside metro manila, we can refer you to our partner offering “virtual addresses" that business owners could use for their business. Unfortunately, we can’t service provincial areas for EasyReg yet.

If your business is within metro manila, write your business or residential address. Please be sure that you have either a Lease Contract or the Copy of the Title of this address.

Do I need to fill out Form 1905? What is approved Form 1905?

If you are an employee before and your business/residential address is different from city of your past employer, you will have to follow these steps:

1st step: Fill out form 1905.(see FAQ #4)
2nd step: Submit your form 1905 to your old RDO.
3rd step: Ask when will your RDO approved your Transfer of RDO (Usually it takes 1 week)
4th step: Go back to your old RDO on the date they said and the they will give you document it can be your Form 1905 with the stamp saying that your RDO approved your Transfer of RDO.
5th step: Submit the document you received to us together with the other requirements

**If you don’t have time to follow these steps, we can help you with that just fill out your Form 1905 and submit it to us together with other requirements but there will be additional fee for that. Just send us an email if you are interested.

Are all requirements to be submitted online or via email? Do I need to physically send them to you (Forms 1905, 1901, 0605 mentioned in the description) and other requirements like IDs and NSO birth certificate? Can these be sent as pdf/scan/photos?

We will need the physical and original documents. Please create 3 copies each. Once accomplished and collated, please send them to Business Registration Team: Taxumo Inc. at Unit 121 Avida Citiflex Lane T corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City 1634. Our office number is (632)3681899.

What does my Taxumo access include?

Includes on-year use of Taxumo Functionalities for Income/Expense Tracking, encoding 2307 entries and Real Time Tax Calculation. Your package includes filing of 2551Q and 1701Q, excluding filing of 1701 form (Annual Income tax Return) for 2019 (Pricing for this has yet to be determined and released).

I’m from outside Metro Manila. I noticed that I have to pay virtual address. Can I not avail that? Why do I need a virtual address in Makati?

You can opt not to avail that especially if you are from CEBU but other than that if you are from other province we won’t be able to process your registration since we (physically) do not have a team in your area to process it for you. Having a virtual address in Manila will allow us to be able to help you. But, we can still guide you on how to register as a licensed or non-licensed professional. Here is an article created by our COO in her blog:

http://txmo.co/freelancertax.

We’re still finding for partner processor around the philippines. 🙂

I’m not Filipino but I want to start a business in the Philippines. Can I avail this package?

Only Filipinos can avail this package. If you are non-Filipino, you will need to open a Corporation or a Partnership.

Do I really have to fill out Special Power of Attorney (SPA)?

Some RDOs require it, so just to be sure, we are requiring you to pass an SPA to save time. If you are from Pasig City (RDO 43), you will surely need to fill out this document. You can simply insert your name, address and TIN on the blank spaces. Print them in 3 copies and sign. Our partner processor will take care of the notarial service.
