Philippines Considers Tax on Streaming Services, GMA Says

Incoming Philippine Finance Secretary Benjamin Diokno is considering taxes on digital transactions and streaming services such as Netflix Inc. subscriptions, GMA News reported.

Digital transactions have the tendency to “evade” taxes unlike purchases made over-the-counter, GMA News cited Diokno as saying. Among these digital transactions are subscription-based services such as video and audio streaming, it said.
