What is the change? A new regulation from the Philippine government requires all foreign nationals to obtain a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) from the Bureau of Internal Revenue prior to starting work in the Philippines.
Background: Previously, special work permit applicants on foreign payroll were not required to apply for a TIN. The new regulation requires all foreign nationals to apply for a TIN prior to conducting work in the Philippines and adds an additional step to the work permit application process.
Analysis & Comments: Employers should prepare for the additional processing time, as all new foreign workers will need to apply for a TIN prior to starting work. Special work permit holders and applicants, who submitted their application prior to the new regulation coming into effect, are exempt from the rule and do not require a TIN to conduct work.
