All employees, sole traders, partnerships and companies are legally obligated to register for a Board of Inland Revenue (BIR) file number to be used in payment of taxes and filing of returns. This number must be quoted on all correspondence to the Board of Inland Revenue. A Pay as you Earn (PAYE) number must be obtained by all companies and sole traders who hire employees. The PAYE number is used to remit taxes withheld from employees’ earnings in accordance with the PAYE System. These numbers must be utilised for the duration of the life of the individual or company.
