Did you know that Employers of MWEs are still required to issue BIR Form No. 2316?

Okay, okay, MWE stands for Minumum Wage Earner while BIR Form No. 2316 means a Certificate of Compensation Payment.  In general, every employer or other person who is required to deduct and withhold the tax on compensation including fringe benefits given to rank and file employees, shall furnish every employee from whose compensation taxes have been withheld the Certificate of Compensation Payment/Tax Withheld (BIR Form No. 2316) on or before January 31 of the succeeding calendar year, or if employment is terminated before the close of such calendar year, on the day on which the last payment of compensation is made. Failure to furnish the same shall be a ground for the mandatory audit of payor’s income tax liabilities (including withholding tax) upon verified complaint of the payee.Image
