What is the Tax Rate and Tax Base for Invasive Cosmetic Surgery?

What is the Cosmetic surgery tax under train law? Well, according to this update, Five percent (5%) is taxed based on the gross receipts, net of excise tax and value-added tax on every service performed on invasive cosmetic procedures, surgeries and body enhancement directed solely towards improving, or changing the appearance of the patient.

Gross receipts are the total amount of money or its equivalent representing the contract price or agreed amount including deposits applied as an initial payment to perform the services. This gross receipt excludes the five percent (5%) excise tax and value-added tax (VAT).

Who is liable to pay the excise tax of 5%?

Any person who is performing invasive medical procedures or body enhancement directed solely on improving or changing the appearance of the patient.


How to File/Remit the Excise Tax?

Excise tax on non-essential service which involves the performance of medical services and not goods should collect five percent (5%) excise tax from the patient or clients and should be remitted to the BIR based on the gross excise tax, net of a VAT.

This practice is the reversal of payment of excise tax. The reversal means that the obligation to pay taxes is transferred to the recipient of the services, not the companies.

In the filing, every person who liable to withhold the excise tax shall file a monthly return of its monthly gross receipts within ten (10) days following the close of the month using BIR Form NO. 1620-XC (Monthly Remittance Return of Final Withholding of Excise Tax on Cosmetic Procedures), along with the Summary of Invasive Cosmetic Procedures Performed via email.

How to Apply Application to Operate?

Every person or entity who wants to engage in invasive cosmetic procedures should file an application for a Permit to Operate with the Excise LT Regulatory Division (ELTRD). The applicant should accomplish the following:

  1. Request Letter
  2. Certificate of Securities and Exchange Commission, together with the Articles of Incorporation and By-laws for corporation and certificate of Registration with the Office of the Domestic Trade and Industry for the individual.
  3. Mayor’s Permit
  4. BIR Certificate of Registration
  5. The latest copy of Income Tax Return
  6. Complete address of the location
  7. Price list of Invasive/Non-invasive Medical Procedures

Let’s wrap up this article. First, five percent (5%) Cosmetic surgery tax under train law is imposed based on the gross receipts, net of excise tax and value-added tax on every service performed on invasive cosmetic procedures, surgeries and body enhancement directed solely towards improving, or changing the appearance of the patient.  Second, the person responsible to pay the excise tax is the person performing cosmetic surgery.
