The “passed-on” GRT should form part of the tax base upon which the GRT is based for gross receipt tax purposes, based on the definition of gross
receipts, that is based on actual or constructive receipt of income. Since bank, non-bank financial instermediaries, financing companies and other
financial intermediaries not performing quasi-banking functions doing business in the Philippines are directly liable for GRT on gross receipts
dereived by them from business operations, the “passed-on” GRT shall be considered as receipt of gross income specificied under Section 32 (A) of
the Tax Code.

• Banks and non-bank financial intermediaries can claim the GRT paid as deductible expense for income tax purposes pursuant to Section 34
(C) of the Tax Code subject to the actual remittance of the GRT as provided under Section 128 of the Tax Code.
• On the other hand, the interest charge tohe client-borrower and the the “passed-on” GRT shall be considered as receipt of income as
