Is your beauty salon a top taxpayer?
The Aquino government's name-and-shame campaign against tax evaders continues

MANILA, Philippines – The Aquino government’s name-and-shame campaign against tax evaders continues. This time, spotlight is focused on salons and beauty clinics.

On Wednesday, September 4, the Department of Finance put out full-page ads in broadsheets listing taxpayers categorized under “hairdressing and other beauty treatment.”

It included industry players that paid “ridiculously low income tax dues” in 2011. They are:

   Salon/Beauty Clinic Area registered   2011 Income Tax Due    
Borromeo’s House of Beauty   North Makati  P193.79
Salon D’Bagamasbad Malabon-Navotas  P172.00
Botchoy Barbershop  Trece Martires City, Cavite  P142.50
Limsan Barbership  Tagum, Davao del Norte P75.00 
Colours N’Styles Salon  West Makati P64.12 
Greta Merchandise and Beauty Shop  Sorsogon P50.96 
Deec Hair, Inc. East Pasig  P56.00 
Violy’s Beauty Parlor  La Trinidad Benguet  P37.00

These tax dues are even more than what it costs to cut their client’s bangs, the Department of Finance noted. 

The list also highlighted the salons and beauty clinics registered in Metro Manila that made it to the top 50 taxpayers, besting their industry peers.

Those that made the cut are:

Some of the tax dues in the list do not include the salons’ or beauty clinics’ income from branches outside Metro Manila. Those officially registered outside the metro are also not included.

The Aquino government is going after erring businesses and individuals to increase tax collections.

The tax bureau has published a similar list targetting erring restaurant owners in Makati and Quezon City. –
