To be able to legally use Quickbooks for our businesses in the Philippines, we must register it as a CAS (Computerized Accounting System) to the BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue).
For this application, we (Business Owners) must submit the technical details to the BIR such as but not limited to:
1. Software Name
2. Version Number
3. Release Number and/or Date
4. Type of Software*
5. Database Platform and Version No.
6. Software Provider’s Name
7. Software Provider’s Address
|8. Joint Sworn Statement of Quickbooks and "Registered User"|
(Full texts and Annexes of Requirements can all be found at :BIR Philippines Memorandum Orders 2021 under RMO No. 9-2021: Prescribing the Simplified Guidelines and Procedures on the Use of
Computerized Accounting System (CAS), Computerized Books of
Accounts (CBA), and/or its Components, including Electronic Storage
System (ESS), Middleware and Other Similar Systems )
Who can we contact and where can we request such details and requirements?
These are the hoops I need to jump into before I can even use Quickbooks for my business. Paying for the Quickbooks subscription or Mapping Philippine's taxes in the software alone is not enough. I hope to hear from you soon, because if I cannot legally use Quickbooks, then I must look for another CAS that can be registered here in the Philippines to open up my business in the quickest time.
I can help get those requirements, @MrKim.

Thank you all for the replies, I was able to have a live chat with your support and I can't believe they have no idea about this. Looks like Quickbooks is not legally registered in the Philippines. I might just look for other systems that have already processed their registration with our Internal Revenue.
Good luck to everyone searching for answers about this as well.
