Small point, Sonjack... Foreigners cannot buy or own land here...

Their name why would I be owning it? So I didn`t buy 3 lots for my wife, of course you can buy land you just cannot own it under normal circumstances.

Never a truer word spoken Snowy. The " moment " its relaised someone has some pera, then the reasons for borrowing, without any intention will come out..

Loan for underperforming sari sari store / Motorbike repair/ buying pigs for a business idea / caribao replacement / lechon for celebrating new found wealth / priest wanting a donation kids need tablets for schooling and they must also be suitable  for gaming /new phone to make better tiktok videos... etcetc... Im thankfully removed from these parts of life here,  but I know enough kind folks  that have felt pressured to provide money that was never returned and sadly.. for which a thankyou wasnt received either.

Here they have a different language: Foreigner = wealthy; Loan = gift; Repayment = never; Devious = devious.

Yes I do. I don't like modern life and so enjoy being in the 1850s. I also hate bureaucracy and so this place suits me very well. And I call a spade a spade unless it is called a shovel as I never know the difference. Thank you for moderating my comments and may there be many more to come. :)

Hello,

I have 2 sisters who have been friends of mine for years.

I am not getting any younger, and I am afraid if I put them in my will, there may not be getting the money, for whatever reasons.

So I thought, maybe I give them now what I would allot in my will.

My question is: If I give them each around 300.000 PHP by way of transfer to their account via TransferWise, would they have to pay any gift or other tax on it?

Do you visit the country and could collect the money yourself from WU or the like and then give it to your sisters in cash? Btw, if you do make such gifts and tax is payable (with you being the one has to pay it under Philippine tax law) then how do they get the tax from you in another country? Tax authorities have enough problems collecting taxes in their own countries so how do they get 2000 pesos from someone living maybe 6000 mile away?

And on the subject of taxes (from the BIR website):

"Capital Gains Tax is a tax imposed on the gains presumed to have been realized by the seller from the sale, exchange, or other disposition of capital assets located in the Philippines ....  ". Well, it's not the way you do it in the Philippines Mr Taxman - a gain is the difference between purchase price and selling price and is not a tax on the whole selling price.  Gee-whizz .... they don't even get that??? :571c66d400c8c_1(103):

Genuine question - do they actually calculate capital gains tax on the total asset sale price rather than the gain?

The term “sale” includes pacto de retro sale and other forms of conditional sales. The transaction may be taxable or exempt.

Taxpayers who are filing BIR Form No. 1706 are excluded in the mandatory coverage from using the eBIRForms (Section 2 of RR No. 9-2016)

When and Where to File and Pay
The Capital Gains Tax Return (BIR Form No. 1706) shall be filed and paid within thirty (30) days following the sale, exchange or disposition of real property, with any Authorized Agent Bank (AAB) or Revenue Collection Officer (RCO) of the Revenue District Office (RDO) having jurisdiction over the place where the property being transferred is located.

When the return is filed with an AAB, taxpayer must accomplish and submit BIR-prescribed deposit slip, which the bank teller shall machine validate as evidence that payment was received by the AAB. The AAB receiving the tax return shall stamp mark the word “Received” on the return and also machine validate the return as proof of filing the return and payment of the tax by the taxpayer, respectively. The machine validation shall reflect the date of payment, amount paid and transactions code, the name of the bank, branch code, teller’s code and teller’s initial. Bank debit memo number and date should be indicated in the return for taxpayers paying under the bank debit system.

Filing and payment may also be made using the electronic filing and payment facilities of the BIR (i.e., EFPS/eBIRForms and G-cash, credit, debit card/prepaid card)
