BPO tax incentives to stay – Sen. Angara

Sen. Angara

Philippine Senator Sonny Angara has assured business process outsourcing (BPO) firms that tax incentives they currently enjoy will stay even with the implementation of the new tax reform program. The tax incentives, Angara said, will attract more BPO investments and thus spur economic growth and job creation in the Philippines. BPO investments have been a big help in sustaining the country’s economic growth for the past years and the government values their contribution, Angara stressed. The BPO sector earlier expressed concern that removing the tax incentives could make doing BPO business in the Philippines more expensive than in India.
