The Nationwide Tax Roadshow was held in Albay from Saturday to Monday, October 20 to 22. Under its Tax Whiz Academy program, the Asian Consulting Group (ACG) conducted the event in partnership with the Center for Strategic Reforms of the Philippines and the Department of Trade and Industry’s Negosyo Center (DTI Negosyo Center).
As part of its advocacy, ACG launched the Nationwide Tax Roadshow to promote tax education throughout the country.
The Philippine Tax Whiz Mon Abrea headed the Executive Tax Briefing for JCI Legazpi. The exclusive discussion was held at the Casablanca Hotel on Saturday, October 20. As with all Executive Tax Briefings, the discussion was tailored for the attendees. Specifically discussed were the impacts of TRABAHO Bill and the opportunities arising from it.
Later, the prominent tax advocate conducted a tax seminar for the DTI Negosyo Center in Albay. The event was attended by micro, small, and medium enterprise owners. The event was held at Sedcen Building, Landco Business Park, Legazpi City.
During the event, the Founding President of ACG discussed basic tax compliance and the ongoing tax reform.
As a Tax Hub, ACG promotes SMEs as catalysts of economic growth and continues to offer tax consultations and tax seminars at its main office.
As part of the Nationwide Tax Roadshow, the Philippine Tax Whiz also attended several interviews about the ongoing tax reform. A tax advocate for more than ten years, Abrea was also asked for his opinion on the relationship of the tax reform and inflation. On Sunday, the Founding President of ACG was interviewed by Karen Canon of ABS-CBN Bicol. Later, he also expressed his opinions during a radio interview with Ken Cabaltera of Idol FM.
According to the tax expert, a tax policy reform not supported by tax administration reform was a pointless endeavor.
On the last day of the tax roadshow, the Philippine Tax Whiz joined Radyo Veritas Legazpi for a radio interview with Susan Balane and Jam Mendoza.
The Nationwide Tax Roadshow is part of ACG’s commitment to disseminating tax information. In support of this mission, ACG holds regular tax seminars, tax coaching, and tax briefings.
