Emelino T Maestro, Father of Tax Accounting, Tax Guru

According to the BIR Commissioner, if you would purchase a 2.4 million-peso vehicle which is not to be used for the delivery of goods but for the use of a certain personnel, even if you would charge portion of its wear and tear, knowingly called 'depreciation' to your taxable income, it shall not be allowed. This means that you shall have an income tax disadvantage of 720,000 pesos for the duration of the useful life of the said vehicle. Or, in other language, your income tax payments is more than 720,000 pesos than the usual. Furthermore, if you paid 12% VAT for the said vehicle which is more or less 288,000 pesos, this input VAT shall not be allowed as a deduction from your output tax which means that you would shell out an additional amount similar to the VAT attributable to the purchase of the said vehicle. Finally, if you would allow your employee to use the said vehicle for his/her personal use, you are deemed to pay fringe benefit tax.
