The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has decentralized the accreditation of all sale receipt machines to make it easier for users to comply with the requirement.

In issuing Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 49-2019, BIR Commissioner Caesar R. Dulay said business operators need not go to the national office to secure the clearance, but instead they can proceed to the regional offices where they are based.

“The circular is issued to devolve the accreditation of all cash register machines, point-of-sales machines, sales receipting software and other machines generating receipts and invoices from the national office to revenue regions and district offices,” the BIR chief stated.

The memorandum is aimed at improving the process of accreditation and reduces expenses of applicants in securing the clearance from the national office.

Dulay said the move is aligned with the administration policy on streamlining front line services in compliance with the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act (RA 11032).
