Seal of Honesty

As business owners and executives of established companies in the Philippines, we acknowledge our company's responsibility to lead by example in the fight against corruption and to promote a culture of honesty and integrity in doing business.

While the government has its own initiatives to improve the revenue collection system of the country, we realize those initiatives cannot succeed without doing our fair share to complement those reforms by paying the right taxes, supporting an advocacy for genuine tax reform, and committing to ethical business practices and good corporate governance by supporting the Integrity Initiative.

SEAL OF HONESTY is a certification program by CSR Philippines to promote a culture of honesty and integrity in paying taxes. The Seal of Honesty supports and complements the Integrity Pledge signed by professionals and corporations for ethical and corporate good governance. It includes a 3-year citizen tax planning to improve the voluntary compliance of qualified individual and corporate taxpayers allowing them to declare true profit and pay the right taxes without the unnecessary burden of penalties and compromises.

It aims to build a community of honest taxpayers recognized by the government for their significant contributions in nation building by paying their taxes correctly. As an incentive, we hope concerned government agencies like BIR, DTI will give incentives to them e.g., green lane, no penalty, no audit and express or automatic tax clearance for government bidding etc.
