BIR introduces Form No. 2305 Data Entry and Validation Module

Update of exemption status is a common scenario in a regular workplace especially for those that employ numerous employees. This happens due to some major decisions employees are making in their lives like getting married, having a child or the like. Of course, they have to update their exemption status to avail of the additional tax exemption. In most cases, employees are the ones processing the update of their exemption status.

With the issuance of Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) No. 59-2015, filing of Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Form No. 2305 (Certificate of Update of Exemption and of Employers and Employees Information) is now a responsibility of the employer.

RMC No. 59-2015 was issued to circularize the availability of:

  • Update of Exemption of Employees (UEE) (BIR Form No. 2305) Data Entry Module
  • 2305 Batch File Validation Module

The above modules shall be used for the following:

  • Updating of employee’s additional exemption for dependents
  • Change of status
  • Execution of the “Waiver to Claim the Additional Exemption” by the husband or revocation of one previously issued

What are UEE Data Entry Module and 2305 Batch File Validation Module?

UEE Data Entry Module is a data entry module where the employer inputs all the registration updates of exemption of its employees one by one with validation before sending electronically to the BIR.

2305 Batch File Validation Module is a  validation module of BIR Form 2305 for the CSV file generated by the employer using own extract program.

Simply put, data will be encoded using the UEE Data Entry Module and will be validated using the 2305 Batch File Validation Module.

Filing of 2305 and Submission of Report and Supporting Documents

BIR Form No. 2305

  • BIR Form No. 2305 shall be filed electronically by the employer using any of the following format:
    • Option 1 – Microsoft Excel CSV format;
    • Option 2- Taxpayer’s own extract program; or
    • Option 3 – BIR’s UEE Data Entry Module
  • Use of Option 1 and 2 requires validation using the 2305 Batch File Validation Module
  • Employees can no longer visit and submit BIR Form No. 2305 to RDOs and LTDs
  • Download the modules at http://www.bir.gov.ph/index.php/downloadables.html

Submission of Reports

  • Generate the CSV file using any options available above and transmit via e-mail to BIRFORM_2305@bir.gov.ph
  • Reports with error or invalid file are considered as non-filing
  • Following are the steps to submit the reports:
    • Download the modules (data entry and validation)
    • Receive and validate the documentary requirements from employees
    • Update employees exemption using the UEE Data Entry Module
    • Generate the monthly CSV Report
    • Attach to email the generated CSV file located at C:\BIRF2305 (file name format – 999999999_99999_mmddyyyy_2305_username.csv)
    • Send to BIRFORM_2305@bir.gov.ph – Subject: TIN_Branch_mmddyyyy_2305 (e.g. 123456789_000_07312015_2305
    • Receive e-mail confirmation (Annex C)

Submission of Supporting Documents

  • Employee shall submit the accomplished BIR Form 2305 together with the required documents to employer
  • Employer validates the completeness of documents
  • Submit the following every 10th of following month to the RDO or LTDs:
    • Accomplished BIR Form 2305 signed by both employer and employee with attachments
    • System-generated email notifcation
    • Printed Monthly Alphalist of Employees and Information Update (Alpha_1) report

Venue of Submission

  • Non-large Taxpayer Employers – RDO having jurisdiction over the place of office of the employer
  • Large Taxpayer-Employers – Large Taxpayers Assistance Division (LTAD), Excise Large Taxpayers Regulatory Division (ELTRD), Large Taxpayers Division (LTD-Makati/Cebu)

Just like any other initiatives of the BIR the main objectives are to make the process more efficient and make the data capture more effective. This means additional work for the employer-taxpayer but may is more convenient on the part of the employee who only needs to submit the required documents to the employer and the latter will do the legwork.

  7. Hello Sir Orlando Calundan CPA, ask ko po about sa pag enter ng TIN no once mggagawa ka ng bagong user. lage po kasing sinasabi skin na TIN cannot be Empty eh gnito po Format ang tinatype ko po. 000-000-000 (9 digits po) Help po sir. Need ko lng po magupdate po. maraming salamat

    Reply
      1. if you’re inputing individual just input the first 9 digit of your TIN (i.e: 123-456-789); you havve to put 00000 on the branch code since its individual, but if Non-Individual, supply the 9 digit to the TIN portion and the remaining digit should be supplied at branch code since, possible that it would be 0000, or (i.e: 00200).

      2. if you are trying to add additional dependent try to use the birthdate of the youngest as the effectivity date… i encountered the same problem the very first time i use the program

  8. Napakadaming error ng program na yan. practicum yata na IT ang pinagawa nila sa napakasimpleng program na yan, dami pang error. Basta kasi may CS, sige hire sila. hindi na batayan ang CS na yan pra masabing effective ka at excellent sa field mo.

  10. Good day po..
    ano po gagawin sa 3 validation errors sa pag create ng new user..
    — TIN should consist of 9 digits (000-538-892-000 yan poh gingamit nmin)
    — Branch Code should consists of 5 digits (Pano po malalaman ang branch code? La Union Area po)
    —invalid contact number ( ex., 607-**** yan po inenter ko

    Hoping for your response..Thanks

    1. Tanggalin niyo po ung First 3 Digits ng TIN. Branch code, I have kasi isang main branch, they let me use 00000 as the code, then 00001 for another branch. I don’t know if it should be the same jan sa la union.

      Contact number (area code)(number) = 06********

  12. good day sir! need pa po ba i-encode lahat ng employees kahit wala namang changes? at need po ba magsubmit every 10th of the month kung wala naman update?

      1. Pag inopem niyo po ung Access Database File, mag oopen po ung LogIn form. Close niyo muna kasi natatakpan sa likod ng form ung Enable Content na nasa highlighted upper part ng Office Ribbon.

    1. You need to click enable content. Iclose niyo muna ung lalabas na form. You will see a yellow line sa taas na may Enable Content. Click niyo. The program should restart and allow you to input data.

  13. Hello sir upon opening this is the pop up message
    Your Microsoft Access database contains a missing broken reference to the file “2” version 1.0
    I still able to proceed but I typed the correct format of tin”000-000-000″ Still when saving the Tin* became in red mark and pop up message is Tin can not be empty.

    Private Sub txtTIN_AfterUpdate()
    Me.txtTIN1 = Me.txtTIN
    Me.txtTIN = Format(Me.txtTIN, “000-000-000”)
    End Sub
    Please give me guidance on this. Several attempts I did to make this add user successful but turns to failure.
    Your help is much appreciated.

  14. Good Day!

    Tanong ko lang po, kasi may problema sa pag generate ng reports sa Lists of Employees. Ano po ba yung iinsert na Start Date? at End Start?

    – Kapag nag insert po kasi ng Start Date (Effective Date) like 02/19/ 2016 at sa End Date (Effectivitiy of Date Exemption) 02/19/2016 , tinatawag ung ibang sakop ng date sa alpha1 pero meron din po na hindi naisasama na katulad ng date

    – kapag nag insert naman ng Start Date (Effective Date) like 09/15/2003 na birthdate ng youngest child, End Date (Effectivitiy of Date Exemption) 09/15/2013 hindi po nag aappear sa alpha 1.

    Paano po ba ito?

    Hope you will response to my question. Thank you.

  16. Hi po. I have the same concern as with others na hindi ko po ma.save yung new user that I am trying to create with the Data Entry Module. I downloaded the updated version from the BIR website as MS Access database file. Does it have something to do with my version of Windows since Windows 8.1 po yung gamit ko dito sa office? Or do I need to download additional programs to run the file correctly? Please help. I would appreciate any answer from you guys, Thanks

  17. Good morning Sir, I just have a concern regarding qualified dependents, kasi I have a Senior Citizen mom, who is living and depending on me for her everyday needs, and she's not gainfully employed, I wanted to declare her as my dependent however with the new BIR Forms, I don't see the options fitted for her, I would like to clarify why I can't claim her as my dependent considering I'm now the head of the family.
