BIR sues Jollibee supplier for tax evasion
Reportedly, a supplier of Jollibee Foods Corp faces a criminal complaint after the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) filed a complaint with the Department of Justice due to tax evasion.
Great Wall Promotionals Co. Ltd. together with its officials Carlito N. Pancho, Flordeliza M. Casimiro, George T. Co., Jr. and Roberto T. Co., were identified in the complaint for tax evasion and for deliberately failing to give accurate information in its Income Tax Return for 2008.
Great Wall is a partnership registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Its main office is located along National Road, Sta. Cruz, Zambales.
While the articles of partnership showed Pancho and Casimiro were the partners, a BIR investigation found that they were "mere dummies" of the Cos.
The Cos were named as the real principals of Great Wall, according to the 2007 Mayor’s Permit issued by the Municipality of Sta. Cruz, Zambales and the SEC Registration Data Sheet obtained by the BIR.
