    In the printed Official Receipt forms, the words "Official Receipt" will be covered and the words "Collection Receipt will be stamped on.

As a Computerized Accounting Systems (CAS) registered taxpayer with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), we are currently in the process of updating our system to comply with the requirements of Revenue Regulations (RR) 7-2024 which requires a VAT-registered taxpayer such as SKY to issue a billing invoice. Your SKY bill will be presented in this manner until we secure our permits to print invoices from BIR and complete our system reconfiguration. Then, we will issue the duly-registered VAT invoice once available. Be assured that your SKY bill remains a valid document that serves as a basis for your payables for your SKY service.
