Welcome Laurence,

Mostly anything you could ask is touched on somewhere here...just a matter of finding it.

I've been to Philippines about 15 times since 2003. That involved dating, marriage and family reunion trips. Living now in Ireland with two children. Just returned from a trip 2 weeks ago. I'm looking forward here to conversations about places to go, raising kids and family issues.

He's been around I've talked with him before he had a different name and I can't come up with it right now it was about 4 months ago... and he was looking for work so same subject and said he was living off of 10,000 pesos a month working odd jobs with 6 kids he'd been here 6 years lol... if true he kept himself busy working in the bedroom and his wife was also giving him problems running around, he's a fellow American stuck here and for sure not a happy camper and he didn't bother to get his immigration status in order, his location was in and around Manila.

I will take note of all the cooler places mentioned and then when we visit we'll try to reach them all and go from there.

Thank you for the responses and please add more that some of you may have been to.

REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES 
DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE
BUREAU OF CUSTOMS
MANILA 1099
CUSTOMS ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER (CAO)
NO. 01 - 2018


SUBJECT: AMENDED RULES ON CONSOLIDATED SHIPMENT OF "BALIKBAYAN BOXES"

3.15. Household Effects shall refer to furniture, dishes, linens, libraries, and similar household furnishings for personal use or family use.

3.21. Personal Effects shall refer to commodities whether new or used, for personal use or consumption and not for commercial purposes, such as wearing apparel, personal adornments, electronic gadgets, toiletries, or similar items.

4.1. Qualified Filipinos While Abroad are allowed to send to their Families or Relatives in the Philippines Balikbayan Boxes which shall be exempt from the payment of duties and taxes, up to three (3) times in a calendar year.

4.2. Balikbayan boxes shall contain personal and household effects only and shall neither be in commercial quantities nor intended for barter, sale or for hire, and that the total FCA value for all Balikbayan Boxes per sender in any calendar year shall not exceed One Hundred Fifty Thousand Pesos (Php150,000.00).


Okay so 150000.00 PHPs is about $2,685.00 USDs. If I were to send a box of used hand tools that were about $2,000.00 in value when bought new....what is the formulation of taxing if any on this? Will it be taxed at the value of sale or just as used if any at all. These would be for personal use also.  I'm trying to learn as much as I can before we make our move and I would like to take as many comfort creatures as possible and legally.

Yes thanks to God and Chuck. I'm the admin who approved him. I will own it. So sorry folks.
