House hears BIR
move on industry
The House Committee on Ways and Means tackled BIR Revenue Regulations 13-2013, which amends its previous definition of raw sugar, at a hearing on Monday, Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3 rd District), said yesterday.
Benitez had earlier filed House Resolution 394 directing the Committee on Ways and Means to investigate, in aid of legislation, the issuance of BIR RR 13-2013.
The BIR regulation being questioned basically left Muscovado as the only type of sugar that is exempted from VAT, he said.
