‘We are One of the Biggest Taxpayers in the Country!’ ABS-CBN’s Statement Feb 2020

Noong ika-13 ng Pebrero ay naglabas ang ABS-CBN ng pahayag ukol sa isyung ipinupukol sa kanila kaugnay sa pagbabayad ng buwis. Ayon sa Kapamilya network, isa daw sila sa mga kumpanyang may pinakamalaking binabayaran na buwis. Maipagmamalki din daw nila ang kanilang katapatan at integredad.

“ABS-CBN has no outstanding tax liability with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). In fact, the BIR issued a Tax Clearance Certificate to ABS-CBN in 2019.

For the past 17 years, ABS-CBN has paid a total of P70.5 billion in taxes to the government, making the company one of the biggest taxpayers in the country.

We have also been cited as one of the Top 200 Non-Individual Taxpayers nationwide.

ABS-CBN takes pride in adhering to its corporate values of honesty and integrity in the conduct of its businesses. We have no unpaid obligations to any bank or financial institution.

We remain grateful for the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the nation, whether through the services we offer to the people or by paying our taxes to the government.” sabi ng Kapamilya network.

Pero ang pahayag na ito ng istasyon ay taliwas sa binunyag ni COngressman Rodante Marcoleta sa ginawang pagtalakay ng senado ukol sa legislative franchise ng ABS-CBN. Ipinakita kasi ng kongresista ang ginagawang pamamaraan ng Kapamilya network para mapababa ng husto ang kanilang buwis sa puntong tila gobyerno pa raw ang may utang sa istasyon.

“It used its fully owned subsidiary, Big Deeper Digital Content and Design Inc., a PEZA (Philippine Economic Zone Authority) registered company as tax shield. Its main customer is ABS-CBN hungary. And because of this tax avoidance scheme, ABS-CBN alleged effective tax rate in 2018 was at negative 5 percent. This means that ABS-CBN manage to avoid paying taxes in 2018… Bakit ang GMA 7 na hindi kasing laki o kasing yaman ng ABS-CBN ay nakapagbayad ng buwis sa pamahalaan ng P1.6 billion noong 2018. Samanatalang ang ABS-CBN ay walang binayarang buwis. Bakit naman nakalibre ang ABS-CBN noong 2018 sa negative income tax nila na 84 million. Ibig sabihin nito ay may tax credit ang ABS-CBN at gobyerno pa ang lumalabas na may utang dito. Wala po itong pagkakaiba sa isang taong umutang sa tindahan at binigyan pa ng sukli,, ” saad ni Marcoleta.

Lumaktaw sa 21:50 mark ng video para mapanood ang pagbubunyag ni Cong. Marcoleta tungkol sa ginagawang pamamaraan ng ABS-CBN para pababain ng husto ang kanilang buwis.
