PRESIDENTIAL DECREE No. 1816

DIRECTING THE RATIONALIZATION OF INCENTIVES AND GRANTING THE PRESIDENT AUTHORITY TO MODIFY AND/OR REVISE SUCH INCENTIVES AND EXEMPTIONS

WHEREAS, there is a need for fiscal incentive statutes to be responsive and meaningful to changing circumstances such that they would not become inadequate, obsolete, redundant or no longer necessary;

WHEREAS, it is necessary to realign incentive statutes so as to gear them to policies existing at any given time, such as the current industrialization policies and the thrust to encourage export-oriented and labor- intensive industries utilizing indigenous materials, and

WHEREAS, corollary thereto, there is likewise a need to harmonize incentive statutes being implemented by various government agencies in order to prevent competing, conflicting or confusing programs.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, FERDINAND E. MARCOS, President of the Republic of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by the Constitution, do hereby order and decree;

Section 1. Any general or special law to the contrary notwithstanding, the President may, on his own initiative or upon recommendation of the Fiscal Incentives Review Board, modify and/or revise any fiscal incentive granted under any statute when any of the following conditions exist;

(a) When it is reasonably evident that the incentives granted are no longer adequate, necessary or appropriate.

(b) When there is need to modify incentive privileges in the light of technological, economic and social changes, or

(c) When there is need to redesign the tax incentive schemes to obviate unemployment and avoid economic and social dislocation.
