Jollibee, KFC franchisees among top Pasig taxpayers
MANILA, Philippines - Franchised retail food brands — including American chain KFC and local food giant Jollibee — were among the top 40 restaurant taxpayers in Pasig City in 2011.
This was according to a list released on Wednesday, September 18, by the Department of Finance and Bureau of Internal revenue as part of their TaxWatch series.
Notably, the Pasig restaurants in the list pay relatively lower taxes than those previously featured as top taxpayers in Mandaluyong, San Juan, Quezon City and Makati.
The tax agency lumps some restaurants together since different brands or branches are part of the same registered corporate owner, which pay the tax dues.
Below are the top 40 restaurant taxpayers in Pasig City. The list consolidates those who settled their tax dues in West and East tax revenue districts:
