The BIR may also impose other taxes to them like Excise Tax, Final Withholding Tax, Improperly Accumulated Tax, Quarterly Percentage Taxes, and other taxes applicable for other types of business activities, line of business, and other circumstances.

When the corporation is registered with the BIR, they will conduct a briefing on you to determine the right taxes applicable to it, and these taxes will be stated in your BIR Certificate of Registration (BIR Form 2303). Thus, you may refer to your BIR Form 2303 to determine the BIR Forms and kinds of taxes that you should file and pay to the BIR or the government.
