Tax Guide for Professionals: Who are Required to Pay Professional Tax Receipt?

According to the Tax Guide for Professionals authored by the Bureau of Internal Revenue, defined Professional, classified as self-employed, refers to individual or a group, practicing his or their profession or calling, with or without license under a regulatory board or body.

For individuals, one of the registration and documentary requirements is the payment of Professional Tax Receipt (PTR) from the local government, if applicable. If the professional is registered in Makati, Professional Tax Receipt (PTR) is payable annually on or before January 31. Persons engaged  in the practice of profession requiring government examination is levied an annual professional tax of P300, except those exclusively employed in the government. Please refer http://www.makati.gov.ph/portal/uploads/staticmenu/docs/taxes_and_fees.pdf of the full text of paying miscellaneous taxes, fees and charges.

It also includes BIR requirements in the payment of Annual Registration Fee (RF) of P500 and other related taxes.

Aside from that, Professionals are required to maintain books of accounts using any acceptable method of accounting (accrual or cash basis) in a consistent manner. Their books of accounts are to be audited and examined by an independent Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in order to give an independent opinion regarding its financial condition as required by the Bureau with certain conditions and requirements.

Please refer ftp://ftp.bir.gov.ph/webadmin1/pdf/taxguide.pdf of the full text of the Tax Guide for Professionals

  1. (1) Aside from PTR, does a professional have to pay local business tax to the city/municipality? For example, a professional dentist opens a dental clinic business.
    (2) Opening such dental business requires mayor's/business permit? Or are professionals exempted?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. If you will put up a business related to dental clinic, you need to comply with the requirements of business registration: 1. Brgy. clearance 2. Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) for Single Proprietorship 3. BIR 4. City or Munipality. Thanks

    2. If I have my own business and another company is asking me to sign their documents/design as required by law. Do I need to produce a PTR? Can I use my business receipt instead of PTR?

    2. Good afternoon, sir. It`s nice seeing your blog and I got some valuable infos as regards to BIR registration. I have been registered to BIR for 2 years now since 2014, but I never thought of paying for PTR as I am working as online tutor under an independent contractor agreement (contract) with the company. I registered myself under the category of BIR 'self-employed professional'. The BIR just asked for my contract and never asked me to get PTR though. I am not engaging in business because I just work at home doing it online. I issue receipts every time I get my salary from the company. THe reason I registered was because of this contract and the company just issues me 2307 quarterly which I use for 1701q and 1701. I pay for percentage tax monthly too. My question is: Do I really need to Pay for that PTR? I guess, if so, the cityhall might also look for DTI, mayor`s permit etc as they think I am running a small tutorial business. Hope you give me a response. Thank you.

  5. hi what if i am an optometrist and a sole proprietor? as i understood, the mayor's permit is 'only if applicable', do i really need a mayor's permit or not? i think our prc i.d. is like our permit to engage in business without mayor's permit.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In general, engage in profession or calling is different from engage in business. If you will apply to BIR for purpose of your profession as optometrist, you only need Professional Tax Receipt (PTR) and PRC License as a requirement for registration. If you want to apply as a single proprietor, you need DTI, & Business Permit and Other documentary requirements. Eventually, your re now considered as a mix income earner (profession and business).

  6. I went to manila city hall today to get my first ptr for my first job. I spoke to a guy named John at the license division. He asked me to pay 3k for the missed years 2012 to present. I told him I dont have the amount at hand. He asked me then to pay just half of the due amount. He gave me his mobile phone in case I want to consider his offer. I left and opt not to pay. He sounds bogus. Can someone explain what is happening? What am I gonna do now? I need a ptr in my application at USTH. THANKS!

    4. That is not a bogus sir. Under the law if you do not pay on time your PTR you will have a surcharge of 25% and interest of 2% per month. That is based on experience because it happened to me. The treasury department of our province wrote a letter to me demanding to pay the years i failed to pay based on their record.

    5. good day! May I ask where to find this law as I may need some reference when paying my PTR. It's better to arm myself with some knowledge so I won't be overcharge. I have passed my boards since Feb 2003, and have worked in government from Jann 2004 to Dec 2006. I haven't really practice my profession full time since 2007-2010. Then went abraod from 2010-2016. I have never really filed for PTR before. Planning to apply now but I'm sure there will be penalties but at least better to know how they're going to charge me for penalties. Thanks.

      Delete
    6. Hello. I have the same case last year (2014-2016). In my case, the officer computed me for my penalty for the year 2014, 2015 plus annual registration fee of 2016 which is 300. You must ask the table for validation of the computation for late penalty. There is a table mandated by each city. Just be courteous when you ask. And as far as I know, the maximum penalty is (5 years) only. (Please verify pa din with your municipality tax table penalty)

  30. Hi! I need your advice po.. Ganito kasi yon, before nag work ako sa isang company sa Libis. So sila ang nag paprocess ng mga taxes ko. Local Employee status ko non. Tapos lumipat ako ng NCO, as a Nurse. Pero HINDE ko pina change status ko sa BIR as professional, so local employee pa rin sya. Kinakaltasan kami ng 10% sa salary namin para sa tax. Ngayon, natapos contract ko sa NCO last year, December 31, 2015. Ibinigay sa amin ng NCO yong form na 2307. Ang sabi dalhin lang daw sa respective RDO namin. Pumunta ako doon kaso pinapapag file ako as a professional tapos may babayaran daw yon mga 10k plus. Inadvise ako ng officer of the day na wag ko na daw efile tutal nareceive na din naman nila yong ibinawas na tax daw sa akin ng NCO. So ganun nga ginawa ko, hinde ko epinile yong 2307 ko. Ngayon, nagwowork ako sa isang company as local employee. Nagfile sa BIR yong company ko ngayon ng 2305.

    Ang tanong ko okey lang ba hinde ko efile yong 2307 na yon from nco? since ndi ko naman pinachange status ng employment ko, Employee pa din sya.

    Pag ba hinde ko efile yon hahabolin ba ako ng BIR?

    Ano ang mga possible mangyari pag hinde ko efile yon?

    Kung sakali, ano maaari kung gawin para maifile ko yon nang HINDE pinapachange status ko as a employee to professional or adding professional? Employee lang, since ndi ko din naman gagamitin profession ko as of now.

  73. Hi,

    Registered ako bilang licensed insurance agent last November 2016, at nais nilang kumuha ako ng PTR. Pero di ko nagawa, dahil hindi ako nakapag simula bilang Financial Advisor. Mag kano ang possible kong babayarang sa PTR? At anu ang requirements? Need ba ng BIR Form 1901? Maraming salamat! :)

    1. Hi Ma'am, if you will get PTR to city or municipalty it will base on issuance of PRC License or latest PTR. PTR Fee is 500 pesos per year. Requirement is PRC ID. If you will register to BIR as Professional - PRC License, one of the requirements are PTR and PRC ID. Thank you. Kindly back read the blog, too.

  78. Good Day! My name is John. I came across with this blog and its an interesting article about PTR. Thank you for sharing.

    Is it true that the PTR requirement per city varies? especially if you are a profession that is not licensed like doctors, nurses, lawyers and the likes.

    Also by any chance do you know what are the requirements in getting a PTR if you are not a licensed professional? Because I work at home as a freelancer and im working on my COR as of the moment but im not sure if I also need a PTR. Im thinking that since im not a licensed professional i shouldnt be required but I read somewhere online that it usually depends per city whether a professional whose not license would be required to get PTR or not.

    I just find it not so "user friendly" LOL

  80. Hello Sir. CPA po ako. Last October lang po. Nung January lang po ako na employ. Nung kumuha po ako ng TIN ko po sa BIR, 1901 po yung nakuha ko na form. Kaya po nag bayad po ako ng PTR. pag balik ko po sa BIR sinabi po sakin na dapat 1902 kinuha ko dahil sa private firm naman po ako at di na kelangan ng PTR. Kelangan ko po ba iinform yung munisipyo namin na nagkamali po ako? diba po may penalty po yan kapag di po ako nagbayad next years?

Hello po CPA po ako. last october lang at january na po ako na employ. 1901 po yung nakuha ko na bIR form kaya nagbayad po ako ng PTR which is mali kasi dapat 1902 lang kasi di naman ako in public practice at di needed yung PTR. Ano po yung kelangan ko gawin? kelangan ko po ba iinform yung municipality namin na nagkamali ako? diba po may penalty kapag di po ako nagbayad proceeding years?

    1. Hi Ma'am Mayrelle, kapag kumuha ng PTR is based on date of PRC issuance. If nakakuha na po kayo, need po magbayad to avoid penalties unless you will be employed to government.

  82. Good Day po,
    Licensed Civil Engineer po ako and worked as an employee sa isang Construction company sa Pilipinas and eventually naging OFW at hindi ko po nagamit ang License ko for signing any plans or design for a fee.

    Balak ko po gamitin to sign some docs so nagpaplan po ako kumuha ng PTR pero may mga nagsasabi sa akin na magbabayad ako ng malaki sa penalties dahil di ako annually nagbabayad para sa PTR ever since pumasa ako ng board. Liable po ba ako sa penalties kahit di ko nagamit ang license ko for personal practice?

    Panu po ang process sa ganitong situation na first time kukuha ng PTR after many years after passing board?

  85. Hi Sir I have a question..
    I worked as an online freelancer and registered to BIR. I just I my contract and OTR (occupational tax receipt) / they said it was equivalent of PTR.

    I'm wondering should I also need to renew it yearly before Jan 31.. its August already so I'm thinking that if it will be same as PTR I may have a penalty already

  86. Hi Sir. I got my professional license in 2006 but have not practiced my profession since then. Now, I am planning to go back to my nursing career in St. Luke's where they required me to get a PTR. Will the city hall still asked me to pay for the previous years as interest even though I have never been become a nurse as my job role? And if I am currently residing in Pasig and St. Luke's is in Quezon City, which city hall should I go to get a PTR?
