Revised version of BIR Form 1604CF and alphalist

Revised version of BIR Form 1604CF and alphalist

The BIR has issued the revised BIR Form 1604 CF (Annual Information Return of Income Taxes Withheld on Compensation and Final Withholding Taxes) and format of alphabetical list (alphalist) of employees/payees which should be attached to BIR Form 1604 CF. The revisions were made in accordance with the amendment introduced by Republic Act 9504 as implemented by Revenue Regulations No. 10-08.

The alphalist can be prepared using either of three formats:

1. Excel format pursuant to BIR's technical specifications

2. The Company's own extract program

3. The BIR data entry system

For companies using the excel format and the company's own extract program, revisions to the format can now be introduced based on these revised versions of the form and alphalist. For companies using the BIR data entry system, you may have to wait for BIR to upload the revised data entry module before you can start preparing your  alphalist.

The due date for filing BIR Form 1604 CF is on February 02, 2009.

Copy of the updated version of BIR Form 1604 CF and the alphalist are attached.
