They will also present on how to handle a BIR audit through preliminary discussions on BIR target collection for this year and its audit program. This is followed by a discussion on tax assessment with subtopics on tax audit and assessment rules, due process requirements in the issuance of the Preliminary Assessment Notice (PAN) and Final Assessment Notice (FAN), taxpayer’s remedies, and preservation of books of accounts and other accounting records.
