So the Department may have finally notified us last week that the BIR rate had changed and was to be backdated… but they got it wrong!
As per their previous notice, the BIR was to be backdated to 1 July, now they are saying this should have only been 1 August.
The BIR should be:
• 3.75% for the period 1 July 2019 to 31 July 2019, and
• 3.0% from 1 August 2019.
We have a very minor update available due to the Department’s mistake with the change of the BIR rate, and version 5.7.08210.0 has now been pushed out to your server to be run when you are ready.
