Submit Tax Documents Online Through BIR eAFS System

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) implemented the Electronic Audited Financial Statement (eAFS) System under the Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) No. 40-2022 to provide ease to taxpayers when submitting documentary requirements.

The eAFS system is an online platform that allows taxpayers to conveniently submit scanned copies of Annual Income Tax Returns (AITR), Audited Financial Statements (AFS), and other necessary documents and attachments online.

How to Use the BIR eAFS System

With the launching of the eAFS System, this encourages individual taxpayers and business owners to comply with the tax regulations of the BIR without going to the nearest Regional District Office (RDO) to submit the documents. To properly utilize this tool, below are the steps to guide you in navigating the system:

  1. Visit the BIR website and click eAFS.
  2. For first-time users, create an account to access the system.
  3. Check your registered email address and look for the “Activate your BIR AFS eSubmission Account” message from the BIR. You have 72 hours to click the activation link.
  4. After activating your account, you may log in.
  5. Click “File Upload,” located on the left sidebar of the home page.
  6. Before submitting and uploading the documents, make sure that the files are in PDF format. Additional details when uploading your required files include the following:

      • ITRs must be named EAFSXXXXXXXXXITR2022.PDF
      • AFSs must be named EAFSXXXXXXXXXAFS2020.PDF
      • Other required attachments must be named EAFSXXXXXXXXXOTH2020-XX.PDF (Note that the XXXXXXXXX represents your TIN, while the XX in the other required attachments represents the series number of the file.)
    • The uploaded PDF files must not exceed 4.8GB.
