BIR-QC names execs of Uniwide, 7 other firms in tax raps

MANILA — A business process outsourcing (BPO) provider and a decades-old textile wholesaler were among the eight firms named by revenue officials in criminal tax charges on Friday.

In a statement, the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s Run After Tax Evaders (RATE) program under Commissioner Cesar R. Dulay, named Uniwide Sales as one of eight firms named by Revenue Region No. 7 of Quezon City in charges before the Department of Justice.

Registered as a refreshment parlor and retailer of frozen meat, home appliances and wholesaler of textile, Uniwide Sales Warehouse Club, Inc. is being sued for a total deficiency tax liability of PHP84.27 million for the year 2012. The sum covers income tax (PHP44.87 million), Value-Added Tax (PHP38.05 million), and Expanded Withholding Tax (PHP1.36 million).

Also named as respondent was GCS Agents Asia Pacific, Inc., a domestic company engaged in the business of managing commercial call centers, which is being sued for a total deficiency tax liability of PHP92.34 million for 2011.

“The respondent’s obstinate failure and continued refusal to pay their long overdue deficiency taxes, despite repeated demands, constitute willful failure to pay the taxes due to the government,” the BIR said in its statement.

Other respondents were Citistar Transport System Corp., IT Citi Services Inc., Mavina Group, Sparrow Integrated Services, WYE Marketing Corp., and Yarntech Manufacturing Corp.

The BIR is holding Citistar liable for PHP3.66 million in unpaid taxes from taxable year 2011, IT Services for PHP3.06 million from 2008, Mavina Group for PHP54.01 million from 2012, Sparrow for PHP21.5 million from 2008, WYE Marketing for PHP71.74 million from 2009, and Yarntech for PHP104.98 million from 2013. (Benjamin Pulta/PNA)
