Specialist Accountants For Freelancers In The Philippines

Tax compliance, Accounting and Bookkeeping

Why Filipino Freelancers Need an Accountant?

Simply put, if you’re a freelancer in the Philippines, many of you will be earning anything from ₱15,000-₱50,000 per month, some earning ₱100,000 or more monthly. Yet, it is a well-known fact that many are either not declaring their income, or seriously under-declaring it without any legal justification to back it up.

Almost nobody enjoys paying taxes. However, here are two big reasons why you need to.

  1. It is illegal. You are knowingly committing a crime that is punishable with imprisonment of not less than two years but not more than four years.
  2. The government could confiscate your assets. If your bought property or cars etc. and cannot justify where the money came from.

People often think, “It won’t happen to me,” however many people later in life suffer the consequences of not paying taxes.
