User Rating

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and GCash mobile money service relaunched the first electronic filing and payment system in the country on April 12, 2016. Together with the USAID Facilitating Public Investment Project and the USAID E-PESO Activity, this computerization and digitization measure aims to improve tax collection and administration, curb corruption, and strengthen business climate in the country.

BIR aims to increase funding contribution to finance the country’s growing needs for basic infrastructure and social programs necessary to reduce poverty.

Globe Telecom complements the government’s tax collection efforts by creating financial technology highways through its new wholly-owned subsidiary, Mynt. The holding company of G-XChange, Inc., which operates GCash, Mynt designs revolutionary ways on how products and services are provided as it leverages on its telecommunications infrastructure, mobile money platform, and micro financing expertise.

GCash was first introduced for national tax payments in 2005. Now with the BIR’s thrust in expanding the provision of electronic services, especially the release of eBIRForms v6 e-filing software, the use of GCash is expanded to allow payments for all types of taxes.

The mobile money service also works with local and national government agencies to increase public’s awareness through the e-Bayad campaigns and enable usage of electronic payments in government transactions.

The partnership between BIR and GCash allows taxpayers to use their mobile phone to pay for all types of taxes in a few minutes instead of going to BIR Regional District Offices or Authorized Agent Banks with their cash or check.

To pay with GCash, you just need to download the GCash App from the Google Play Store for Android devices and then register. Next step is to fund your GCash account from any GCash Partner Outlet, and initiate payment via the GCash App.

All taxpayers who are Globe and TM customers registered to GCash are eligible to use this facility. For more information, please visit
