Sa­mal con­ducts biz fo­rum

Sun.Star Davao - - SOUTHERN -

SA­MAL Is­land – Some 20 reg­is­tered Sa­maleño mi­cro, small, and medium en­trepreneurs were gath­ered dur­ing the city's Busi­ness Fo­rum last Septem­ber 12 at the Old SP Ses­sion Hall, Is­land Gar­den City of Sa­mal (Sa­mal Is­land).

The ac­tiv­ity was ini­ti­ated through the part­ner­ship of the Sa­mal Cham­ber of Com­merce (COC) and City Tourism and In­vest­ment Of­fice (CITO).

“This is one of the un­der­tak­ings of the Cham­ber since as busi­ness­men, we should be com­pli­ant to the law of the land," said Sa­mal City Cham­ber of Com­merce Aus­te­rio Obenza.

With this year’s theme, "Negosyante: Ku­lok­a­bildo sa mga buhisan sa BIR", per­son­nel from the Bureau of Rev­enue gave Sa­maleño busi­ness­men a sem­i­nar on reg­is­tra­tion, book­keep­ing, and in­voic­ing re­quirep­ments.

“Any­body with trans­ac­tion that in­volves tax li­a­bil­ity must reg­is­ter with the BIR," said Rev­enue Of­fi­cer Ralph Les­lie Yu.

BIR 11 un­der­scored that the busi­ness­man’s obli­ga­tion does not just end af­ter reg­is­tra­tion.

Mean­while, with the pres­ence of the Sa­mal Negosyo Cen­ter, Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try 11 will pro­vide an of­fice space for the Sa­mal Cham­ber of Com­merce.

“We will be able to help more Sa­maleño busi­ness­men in be­ing com­pli­ant to the reg­u­la­tions and re­quire­ments – one, by pay­ing our taxes," said Obenza.
