tax rates cars philippines • New Tax for Cars Signed into Law

The new tax reform bill has been signed by President Duterte today. The TRAIN, as it is commonly referred to, has adjusted taxes on several categories including a tax exemption on all personal income tax below Php250,000 (annually).

Likewise, automobiles will have a new or simpler tax structure. For cars, the new tax scheme is as follows:

Net Manufacturer’s / Importer’s Price
Up to P600,000 == 4%
P600,000 to 1,000,000 == 10%
P1,000,000 to 4,000,000 == 20%
Above P4,000,000 == 50%
